Is the Customs Broker Obsolete?
The Customs Broker has been a constant in trade for over 100 years. They have been both the importer’s interface to customs and PGAs and a valued source of knowledge and general information to the importer. However, in this time of massive technological change, is the Customs Broker now obsolete?
