The Florida Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association, Inc. was founded in 1960 by a handful of Miami brokers & forwarders. FCBF has since grown into the most inﬂuential and active representative body of the Florida freight forwarding and customs brokerage community. Through its numerous committees of volunteer professionals, the FCBF represents our industry on matters that directly affect the trade arena.
It has been the commitment of FCBF to foster communications between the trade community and the federal agencies in order to expand Florida’s trading communities at the local, state, and national level. FCBF seeks to maximize the ability of the State of Florida to effectively compete for international trade resources and to minimize the barriers for its members. Through constant communication with various state and federal agencies we help by participating in the development of international trade policies.
The FCBF oﬃces are headquartered in the city of Doral, which also houses the CBP Seaport Operations (SCC) which is conveniently located inside the Miami Free Trade Zone building this setup helps the broker community by facilitating a quicker turn around time for the processing of documentation. FCBF works closely with the different governmental agencies to provide current and informative updates and agency related policies that disseminate through the FCBF information highways.
