Customs brokers are licensed by Customs and Border Protection to collect, protect and defend the revenue of the United States government. To represent importers, an individual must pass a difficult examination offered twice yearly and then undergo a background check, interview and have their references checked before they are awarded a license.

If you plan to take the Customs Broker Exam, your preparation should include a course from Amber Road’s Global Trade Academy.
