No matter your business, shipping internationally has its challenges. Customs can be a complex...
Finding A List Of Customs Brokers Contact Details
You know the nightmare scenario - it's 7:00 PM on a Saturday, your truck is parked, the paperwork isn't set up at the border, and you're at a port of crossing where the customs broker doesn't have an office.
Who does this customs broker use at the port of Detroit, Michigan? Who does that customs broker use at the port of Osoyoos, B.C.? Which broker is 24/7? Who do I call? If I email jack@thisbroker. com, is Jack even working? How will I know they will receive my message?
Worse, both brokers are closed and you don't have their after-hours number.
You just need a human to talk to in order to get your shipment set up & cleared so you can continue on your journey.
We feel your pain. There are over 300 customs brokes in Canada and thousands in the USA and NONE of them have an office at every port, and there is no easy-to-use directory, a "Yellow Pages" just for Customs Brokers, Agents & After Hours... or.. wait... is there?!
