Customs brokers arrange for the clearance of cargo through Customs and other government agencies. And they offer a myriad of other services, including processing your Customs bond, providing classification assistance, dispatching your cargo for delivery, and offering you an online tracking product.
A search for Customs broker on Google comes back with over 2.6 million results.
How can you possibly narrow down your options? Ask yourself these four simple questions:
How many brokers have nearly a century of experience and deep-rooted relationships with Customs and other government agencies?
How many have a third of its staff licensed to do this job?
How many place such a value on continual regulatory training that they have established an internal university?
Most importantly, how many truly care?
Choosing the right Customs broker is more than choosing a random entity. The right broker looks at your business as an extension of its own, asks questions to ensure that your cargo is cleared compliantly, fights to ensure that your cargo is white-gloved throughout the process, considers your overall logistics platform, and suggests governmental programs that may be financially advantageous to your company.
The right Customs broker understands and protects your business. The right Customs broker gives you a competitive edge. The right Customs broker cares.
