Agathon Associates Adds Customs Brokerage Service for Clients

In a ceremony Tuesday at the Thomas P. O'Neill, Jr. Federal Building in Boston international business consultant David Trumbull received his Customs Broker license from Helen T. Sterling, Director of the Port of Boston. Ms. Sterling congratulated Trumbull on passing the Customs Broker Examination -- which, with a reported success rate of just 5%, is said to be more difficult than the bar exam -- and said, "This significant accomplishment authorizes you to conduct Customs business on behalf of others, and empowers you to uphold the regulations set forth in 19 CFR 111 [Customs regulations]."

Agathon Associates is proud to be able to add Custom Broker services to its list of services to the textile and trade community. The License (#30179) is held by David Trumbull.

After the income tax, the largest source of revenue for the U.S. government is the duty collected on imported merchandise. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, relies on its partnership with the approximately 11,000 licensed Customs Brokers nationwide to further its mission of facilitating legitimate trade and to ensure compliance with the Priority Trade areas of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties, Import Safety, Intellectual Property Rights, Textiles, and Trade Agreements.
