Customs brokerage involves the “clearing” of goods through customs agencies for export (and import). Brokers prepare the documentation, calculate the duties and taxes as well as submit to customs the appropriate information. Customs agents and freight forwarder will often work very closely together with regular contact. Once cleared the freight forwarder will once again take over the coordination of the shipment to final delivery. Customs formalities regarding defence and aerospace goods are best handled by those that are accustom to the documentation and requirements.
