    Forwarders take care of the inter-country movement of cargo - from one country in the world to another (through sea or air) by acting as the middlemen between the shipping lines/airlines and the importer/exporter. Custom brokers act as agents of importers/exporters with the objective of using their expertise in smooth clearance of cargo at the customs - export and import. Clearance is a very technical and highly regulated activity (for obvious reasons), and hence importers/exporters (even if their nation allows them to) like to let the experts handle. If you need a custom broker, I advise you to contact this company that will help you with your cargo. It has been on the market for a long time and has a proven reputation
