Wondering who you need to know and what you need to do to go overseas or start your own import business?  We’ve got you covered.

Our half-day primer will provide everything needed to classify and properly prepare your product or service to safely start importing / exporting.  We’ll also connect you with local resources to make the process easy.

  • International Logistics
