All about FIRMS codes

FIRMS codes are assigned by US Customs to identify the facility that will process your import container for customs upon arrival. It stands for Facilities Information and Resources Management System.  

The FIRMS codes you see for your containers are added by the system based on the shipping line's default facility at the destination port, and are updated if we receive new information from our data sources. You may see the FIRMS code for a particular container change if the line is not using their default facility.
