  • Customs broking is a career that involves the
    clearing of goods through customs barriers for
    importers and exporters usually for commercial
    purposes. The clearing of these goods is usually
    geared towards ensuring that the goods are
    delivered in an appropriate manner that enables
    then to reach their destination on time.
    Education is a determining factor as to whether
    one qualifies to be a customs broker or not. For
    one to be successful in this profession, he must
    attain a college degree and major in areas like
    economics, international trade, as well as

  • The most important aspect that a customs broker
    must entail is honesty. Honesty is essential as
    the profession demands that you will deal with
    people and thus for them to want to work with you
    they must find you trustworthy. A good broker
    must be organized and able to pay attention to
    detail. Customs brokers must be aware of laws and
    regulations for shipping goods and ensuring that
    these goods reach their destination on time.

  • A good broker must be endowed with good problem
    solving skills. He should be able to solve
    problems in the most professional way while
    giving attention to the most important details.
    He should be able to know the cause of the
    problems and follow up strategies of dealing with
    the issues at hand, and preventing them from
    recurring in the future. For this to work, the
    broker must have a high level of integrity, in

  • A good broker must be thorough when it comes to
    dealing with paper work and documentation. This
    profession entails a lot of paper work that must
    be handled carefully as most of this paper work
    deals with laws and procedures and also the
    insurance cover of the clients.
  • Different nations also apply their own set of
    laws, when it comes to one qualifying as a custom
    broker. For instance, for one to become a customs
    broker in Canada, he must be approved by the
    Canada Border Services Agency. However, most
    brokers are licensed by the Canadian society of
    customs brokers (CSCB).CSCB is more convenient
    because it provides opportunity for those
    aspiring to take up this profession by offering
    classes for those who want to train brokers.
