The opportunity:

As a Customs Broker, you will be part of the customs operations team and play a vital role in ensuring the smooth movement of goods across US and international borders. Your work directly supports Flexport’s end customers in achieving their compliance goals by executing the clearance of shipments. Most importantly, you will play a pivotal role in building the next customs operational model at Flexport: allowing us to effectively scale to achieve our mission of making global trade easy for everyone a reality.

You will:

  • File US Customs entries under US Customs law for clients
  • Digitally prepare and file all documentation required for goods to clear US customs and Partner Government Agencies (PGAs)
  • Maintain accurate records of customs-related activities, ensuring compliance with record-keeping requirements.
  • Learn and follow global customs laws, regulations, and trade agreements to ensure compliance with import and export requirements.
  • Participate in training programs to enhance your knowledge of customs compliance and stay up to date on changes in customs regulations and industry practices

You should have:

  • Bachelor's degree and/or 1-2 years of relevant experience preferred.
  • Strong attention to detail and organizational skills.
  • Basic understanding of international trade and customs regulations (previous experience or coursework is a bonus).
  • Excellent communication and teamwork abilities.
  • Proficient computer skills, including G Suite applications.
  • Willingness to learn and adapt to changing customs practices and regulations.
  • Ability to work well under supervision and in a team-oriented environment.
  • Strong work ethic and commitment to accuracy and compliance.

This role requires working variable hours to match when customers need us most. You may be required to work national holidays, weekends, swing or night shifts, and may be asked to render overtime based on business needs.
