Duncan Aviation Offers Advice to Operators Shipping Parts to the U.S. for Repair

LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation imported 4,131 shipments from 53 different countries last year. Many of these shipments were for aircraft components arriving at Duncan Aviation’s Lincoln, Nebraska, United States, location for repair or overhaul services.

Duncan Aviation’s international compliance team has the responsibility to ensure the company stays in compliance with all United States government policies regulating the import and export of all shipments into and out of the United States, either destined for or leaving Duncan Aviation. Compliance team members Steve Rothanzl and Monica Bohling continuously study the ever-changing and often vague government regulations and educate Duncan Aviation customers about what is required to avoid delays, fines and duty fees.

Bohling says managing imports through U.S. Customs is only one part of the function of the international compliance department at Duncan Aviation. “We study the regulations of 14 U.S. Federal agencies that monitor the import and export of goods into the country. As new regulations arise, we educate our teams and improve our processes to provide a seamless international shipment experience for our customers,” she says. “Our ultimate goal is to keep international shipments moving while reducing costs and delays.”
