How do customs affect lead times?

Shipments traveling overseas must pass through customs which can sometimes be a cause of unexpected delays. Passing through customs can lead to delays because the ports can be backed up, particularly during busy times of the year (see holiday calendar). Furthermore, some ports in the US have been slowed down by port worker strikes.
