  • Get everyone on board: You’ll talk to our partners and make sure they understand customs requirements. If our BDO team needs some training, you’ll handle that too.

  • Work with authorities: You’ll be overseeing physical and administrative controls by customs authorities and make sure everything is in order.

  • Teach others: As you grow in the role, we’ll count on you to teach others about customs.
