U.S. Customs Brokerage Leader, Carmichael International Service Expands To Canada
Scottsdale, AZ, 16 May 2016
Carmichael International Service, a division of APL Logistics and one of the largest customs brokerage, trade compliance and consulting specialists in the United States, today announced that it will expand its full suite of services into Canada. The expansion will cover all major entry points into Canada. With this move, Carmichael will offer seamless assistance to importers throughout the USA and Canada.
The move marks Carmichael’s first expansion outside of the U.S. in the company’s 55-year history. The expansion will be facilitated through the Kintetsu World Express (KWE) office network in Canada. KWE is the parent company of APL Logistics.
“We are excited to offer our full suite of customs brokerage and trade compliance services and expertise to Canadian customers,” said Todd Boice, President of Carmichael International Service. “This milestone event will establish a full-service Canadian footprint and network right out of the gate. Our whole team is looking forward to the single-source synergies and conveniences that this expansion will offer to North American shippers.”
Carmichael’s Canadian Customs Brokerage operation will initially serve clients at border crossings and major airports through dedicated offices operated by KWE in Canada. Key offerings include: 24-hour/6-day a week coverage; compliance and transaction validation; classification; Non-resident importer (NRI) programs; documentation; duty payment processing; regulatory compliance; and electronic entry preparation, filing and release. All of these services feature full electronic integration with CBSA’s ACROSS system. And all can either be used solely in Canada or integrated with Carmichael’s U.S. or global service offerings.
