They also provide advice to clients on export and import restrictions, tariff systems, letters of credit, insurance requirements, and other customs-related matters. In some cases they may represent clients before administrative tribunals or in other dealings with government officials. Most use computerized information management systems and online computer networks, such as the internet, to communicate and gather information.
