Customs House Brokerage

With more than 200 laws in place for the United States alone, navigating customs can be a complex and confusing process. Not only are the laws and regulations regarding the import and export of goods constantly changing, but the intricacies and details need to be just right in order for businesses to be compliant.

Because of the complexities, many businesses turn to a customs brokerage company, or a customs house broker, to help them navigate the procedures.

  • Customs house brokers are licensed and regulated by the U.S. Treasury Department and serve as a point of contact between your company and the U.S. Customs Service.
  • These customs brokerage companies serve as an excellent resource and advisor for the technical elements of the importing and exporting operations.
  • Often, these customs house brokers also help you with the preparing and filing processes for all your documents to ensure a smooth transition from one country to the next.

Since customs compliance can be essential to the success and efficiency of your business, it’s important to find a customs brokerage company that you can rely upon and trust. A company like UWL.
