Designed to give delegates the essential knowledge of customs procedures required to work in an operational role within an exporting / importing, transport or freight forwarding environment.

It covers the requirements in a practical and pragmatic way ensuring delegates know how to operate legally and how to gain the benefits available for their organisation. The course is intended to give delegates the knowledge and tools needed to fulfil a commercial customs role in the supply chain efficiently and effectively making full use of the available customs processes and procedures to obtain the best outcomes for their organisation or customers.

Customs procedures involves the preparation and submissions of documentation required to facilitate export or imports into the country, representing clients during customs examination, assessment, payment of duty and co taking delivery of cargo from customs after clearance along with documents.

What’s more, the rules, regulations, and laws are a bit different from country to country, sometimes from port to port within a country, etc. Having the wrong person to handle your customs brokerage can be very problematic. The last thing you want is for customs to find your shipping manifest is inaccurate and think you’re trying to sneak something past them. All you want is a low risk assessment of your cargo shipment at the customs so as to avoid the cost of warehousing at the customs departments.
