What are Customs Brokers?

Customs Broker reviewing documents
  • Customs Brokers are licensed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to act as agents to transact Customs business on behalf of Importers of goods into the U.S.
  • Customs Brokers interface with most of the 60 Federal Agencies that monitor the International Community, with strict focus on imports entering the U.S.A.
  • Customs Brokers provide shipment and product data to Customs, as well as other Government Agencies that aid them in determining the admissibility of goods to be imported into the U.S.
  • Customs Brokers assist importers in the classification of goods using the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS). The HTS of a product determines the rate of duty to be paid to Customs when the product is imported into the U.S.
