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?

Join us for a debate and be part of the exchange. Dan Gardner, an LCB, former NVO, a previous BCO argues that the Customs Broker is and remains a vital member of any Import/Exporter's team. Ned Blinick, Chief Product Officer of 3rdwave argues that the Customs Broker's days are numbered and that they are becoming unnecessary.

What you will learn:

  1. The traditional role of the Customs Broker to both importer and Customs.
  2. How the role of the Customs Broker has evolved over time and how their obligations have changed.
  3. The current state of GTM solutions and their impact on Trade Compliance teams.
  4. How GTM technology is radically transforming the importer/Customs Broker relationship.
