HOUSTON, April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Business professionals today understand that the world has become a much smaller place in recent years. The capabilities and benefits of the Internet and wireless technology coupled with advancements in the shipping industry have enabled companies that once operated on a local or domestic scale to expand their reach internationally. This has assisted some companies with growth and development, but it has also created some challenges for them. Many companies that make international shipments on a regular basis are struggling to find a convenient, affordable way to simplify the international shipping process even further. For many companies, one of the most significant burdens associated with international shipments involves dealing with customs brokers. Hawthorne Global is a global leader in international freight forwarding, and it recently has updated its customs broker Houston procedures to best meet the needs of its clients.
What Is Customs Brokerage?
When a company ships goods into a country, these goods generally must pass through customs. Each country has its unique rules and requirements for passing customs, and these rules may change periodically. It is up to the company shipping the goods to ensure that the shipment complies with local regulations, and this can place a considerable burden on those companies that want to take advantage of the benefits of an international marketplace for their goods. Hawthorne Global offers customs brokerage services in many locations around the world to assist with this process and to ensure that goods are delivered in a timely manner. The company has over 47 years of shipping and freight forwarding experience as well as live personnel on the ground to assist with receiving shipments and working them through customs.

Because Hawthorne Global has significant experience as well as the manpower and infrastructure necessary to assist with shipments around the globe, it is the company to rely on for all shipping and freight forwarding needs. It most recently has updated its customs process in Houston to account for the new regulations and procedures in place.
