MCALLEN, Texas – Customs broker Federico Zuniga recently spoke at a ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by South Texas College.

Zuniga is director of the National Educational Institute at the National Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association of America (NCBFAA).

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was held to celebrate a partnership between STC, NCBFAA and the Mid-Valley Customs Brokers Association. The partnership will see a new course being offered at STC’s technology campus in south McAllen – an industry-recognized course to train students for a career in customs brokerage. 

Zuniga pointed out that his grandfather and father were in the international trade industry. He said more customs brokers are needed to cope with an increase in international trade. And, he said, those entering the profession can make a good living.

“This area is primed for growth beyond our imagination,” Zuniga said.
