The role of customs brokers in shipping

As we know, each country will set up the corresponding customs to check whether the imported goods meet the national standards, and charge customs duties, and the customs broker plays a role in this situation, let’s take a brief look at customs clearance.

What is Customs Clearance?

Customs clearance means that imported goods, exported goods and trans-shipment goods entering a country’s customs territory or national border must be declared to the Customs Department, for the formalities stipulated by the Customs Department, and to fulfil the obligations stipulated in the laws and regulations; only after fulfilment of the obligations and handling of the Customs declaration, inspection, taxation, release and other formalities, can the goods be released to the owner or the declarant to be able to take delivery of the goods.

What is the role of Customs Brokers in Sea Shipping?

The customs broker will be responsible for customs declaration and submission of relevant customs clearance documents in the destination country to ensure that the goods comply with the laws, regulations and standards of the importing country, and help the customer to deal with the relevant customs affairs to avoid penalties arising from the violation of customs regulations.

The service quality and professionalism of a customs broker is crucial to the development of a client’s business. A good customs broker should have efficient, professional and honest service points to provide customers with a full range of customs clearance services.
