The Customs Broker plays a critical role in the importer’s supply chain ensuring goods are compliantly declared and efficiently entered through Customs and Partner Government Agencies.  In exercising reasonable care, choosing a Customs Broker service provider involves more considerations than just cost and changing providers is not easy.  Importers often do not know how or where to start.

 In this workshop, an importer will share tips from her recent Customs Broker bid experience, including the following:


  •         Bid steps and timeline
  •         Bid documentation templates
  •        Business information the importer should provide    for accurate results
  •       Customs Broker performance metrics
  •       Strategies for changing service providers

Please join OWIT-Phoenix on Thursday, September 17th, 2015 for this special international trade workshop and help us welcome…….
