Trade has grown remarkably over the last two centuries, completely transforming the global economy. In fact, roughly one-quarter of total global production is now exported—a reality that puts unique pressures on the world’s supply chains, logistics, and transportation networks. 

Where companies once focused their operations on the countries where they were based, advances in technology and communications make it feasible for companies to transact with one another around the world. With the average company selling in at least a few different countries, the need for reliable international freight forwarding and customs brokerage services has grown exponentially.
