Our software provides unique control, visibility, and profitability for stations managing CBP operations. Working with US CBP is demanding and success requires execution in operations and compliance. Silver Bullet has focused on a complete system to meet the needs of Centralized Examination Sites (CES) who serve freight forwarders, customs brokers and importers. Our software automates every component of the examination process which includes drayage, equipment (container, chassis, and trailer) management, gate and yard management, dock and trans-load management, warehouse management, rate management, per diem management and final delivery. We also offer full functionality for temperature controlled cargo including a full notification toolset to manage exceptions for temperature controlled equipment and cargo.

A modular software system for CES

In addition to a CES module, companies have the option to add a Warehouse Module, Yard Module, and Drayage Module (which are just a few of the different modules we offer).  Some of these modules include mobile applications that streamline processes and additional web modules to manage visibility and payments.

Questions for CES Operators


  • Are you working to capacity but cannot add resources?
  • Can you add new support personnel and train them quickly?
  • Can your systems manage “IN GATE” and “OUT GATE” events and communicate with carriers?
  • Is your team spending precious time struggling with “per diems”?
  • How well can you track “reefer” status? Can you do better than a clipboard and check list?


  • Data mining for any purpose in your company should be done by your system, not your people. We make it instant, accurate and available for use in report formats that you demand.
  • Yard movement that is not monitored correctly has a cost. Use technology to process and communicate “IN GATE” and “OUT GATE” data to carriers.
  • Do more for customers by expertly and instantly managing the “Per Diem” process. Automated alerts empower you to save money for customers.
  • Electronically integrate your Yard activity with your CFS, bonded 3PL, Trucking and Exam station. Data sharing is the key to superior customer service.
