A customs agent is an expert in customs logistics who legally represents importers and exporters before customs, helping them clear their goods and comply with their tax obligations, regulations and non-tariff restrictions. He facilitates the import and/or export process, making it an agile, legal, economical and safe process.

The Tax Administration Service (SAT) defines a customs agent as a ”Natural Person authorized by means of a Patent, to promote on behalf of others the clearance of goods under the different regimes”.

The Customs Law regulates the entry and exit of goods into and out of Mexican territory, the means by which they are transported or transported, customs clearance, and the events or acts resulting from this or from the transfer of the products.
