Global trade, also known as international trade, is simply the import and export of goods and services across international boundaries. Goods and services that enter into a country for sale are called imports. Goods and services that leave a country for sale in another country are called exports.
Global trade allows for specialisation and lower costs to consumers. Countries can focus on what they are best suited to do – engage in activities with the lowest opportunity costs for them. Focusing on their comparative advantages means they can maximize production and efficiency, which leads to greater potential for profit and economic growth.
Global trade can create economic wealth on a global scale as each country maximizes its revenue and growth by focusing on what it does best and saving money on imports that would be more costly for it to produce domestically.
Global Trade encompasses many industry sectors across the Global Supply Chain which includes:
Warehouse & Distribution

A customs broker is an entity who holds a customs broker’s licence granted in accordance with Part XI of the Customs Act 1901 (the Act). Under the Act an owner of goods may authorise an agent to act on his or her behalf for the importation of goods into Australia.
There are three categories of customs brokers:
A corporate customs broker is a company or a partnership that is licensed to act on behalf of owners of imported goods. A corporate customs broker must employ nominee customs brokers to lodge customs declarations.
A sole trader is an individual that is licensed to act on behalf of owners of imported goods. A sole trader may also employ nominee customs brokers. A sole trader cannot be employed by a corporate customs broker.
A nominee is a natural person that is licensed to act as a customs broker but only as an employee of a corporate or a sole trader customs brokerage. A nominee may be employed by more than one corporate or sole trader brokerage at any one time.
How Do I Gain a Customs Broker Licence?
Step 1: Approved course of study
You will need to complete the course of study approved by the DIBP (Department of Immigration and Border Protection) for licensing. The currently approved course of study is the Diploma of Customs Broking (national course code TLI50816)
Step 2: Acquired experience
To be granted a customs broker licence you must demonstrate to the DIBP that you have the acquired experience that would fit you to be a customs broker. Acquired experience is the experience you gain in the workplace with broker-like responsibilities. Your acquired experience will be assessed with regard to the length and nature of your employment experience and to your referees’ statements.
Step 3: Fit and proper person
It is a requirement of licensing that you be able to demonstrate that you are a fit and proper person (sometimes referred to as a “person of integrity”). You demonstrate this through references you provide and through integrity checks conducted by the DIBP, including Police checks and other Australian law enforcement agencies.
