In-House Customs Brokerage
The Tecma Group of Companies employs three licensed Mexican customs brokers on a full-time basis. Although recent Customs reforms have given Mexican exporters the option of using licensed Mexican customs brokers, or not, for many international trade transactions, most exporters have opted to continue to use licensed personnel. Using licensed Mexican customs brokers is an effective way of mitigating some of the legal compliance-related risk inherent to conducting transborder business. Despite changes brought on by Customs reform, licensed customs brokers remain the preferred means by which manufacturers in Mexico transact their international business in the NAFTA environment.
