Customs brokerage is one of the most complex areas of international trade. Complying with the multitude of government regulations and requirements is a daunting task for even the most experienced professional. A broker and an importer must maintain a close relationship. Trust and confidence in the expertise offered by the broker form the foundation of this relationship. The importer depends upon the broker not only to process the necessary documentation, but also to advise them of potential liability issues, changes in customs policy and any problems that may arise that will delay shipment delivery.
