Many forwarders use SGS Brokerage services. SGS supports them and their clients with advice and prepares import, export, and transit documents and certificates of origin for them. And if you, as a forwarder, wish to make your own declarations, you can make use of SGS’s declaration software. We can also help you to automate part of the declarations and flow of messages.
