Enlist reputable agents with industry experience to make sure your imports and exports are cleared and forwarded efficiently. Inexperienced agents may cause unwanted, costly delays, which can quickly increase your final import or export costs. Also keep your agent informed if you make any changes to your C&F instructions.

About the author
Tracy studied at Stellenbosch University and gained her initial experience in imports and exports through working for industry. After starting her own import business, and helping some friends do the same, she realised there was a need for reliable customs registration services. As a result, in 2011, Import Export License was born. Since then thousands of importers and exporters have been helped to obtain their import export licences, permits, specialised customs registrations and connect with Import Export License consultants for advice on importing, exporting, and other customs related matters.
