Whether we need Customs Clearance agents for Customs Clearance purposes, if we keep documents perfectly, won't we manage by us ? 4.)

Admin: Hi sive, You may directly approach an IATA agent to carry your cargo. You can directly handle shipments without appointing a freight forwarder. You can directly complete export or import customs clearance procedures and formalities without a Customs clearance agents. You can arrange to contact air carrier to move your shipments from Madurai to Malaysia by transhipment, if direct flights not available.
