A power of attorney (POA) is a legal document used in shipping to grant a customs broker the authority to process Customs clearance on your behalf.

A signed POA is necessary in order to clear your goods through US Customs.

Your freight forwarder may offer brokerage services directly, or they may contract a brokerage service. You can also contact a broker through the Freightos.com marketplace.
