B.
Customs Brokers.
When a customs broker is obtained, send their information to FedEx (or whichever carrier is requesting it),
and they wil obtain an IT number (a bond number) to release to the customs broker. The fee for clearance
may vary; Expect at least $100.00 fee.
The customs broker will send a power of attorney to Mines (whoever is dealing with the package) to give
the broker the right to process and clear the package. Charles M. Schayer has the Mines POA on file and
can assist if they service that area. When the package is cleared by the customs broker, the broker will act
as the courier and ship the item(s) to Mines.
