Import
.................................................................... Of all the countries on the planet, the United States clearly leads the world in paperwork. Ever since the events of September 11, 2001, U.S. Customs has made importing goods into the country an even more complicated task.

We have the expertise to make imports smooth and efficient.

Whether your shipment needs to go to Andorra or Tierra del Fuego, we have the expertise and resources to get it there as efficiently and as economically as possible.

Our newest is C-TPAT Certification Training that enables our customers to make the most out of the strict requirements of U.S. Customs.
