Customs Broker

Customs Broker

A customs broker acts as an agent between businesses or individuals and the government, helping to facilitate imports and exports of goods across international borders.

The Customs broker acts as a liaison between the importer/exporter and government authorities, such as customs officials, to ensure that all legal requirements for the shipment of goods are met. The customs broker handles the documentation relevant to the customs process and ensures that all taxes, duties, and fees are paid correctly. They also provide guidance on trade agreements, tariff classifications, and other relevant matters that can affect the cost and logistics of international trade. 

Customs brokers may work independently or as part of a larger customs brokerage firm or a Freight forwarding agency and they are typically licensed by government agencies.
