Emery Forwarding has opened a new customs brokerage office at the Ambassador Bridge where Detroit, Michigan is linked to Ontario, Canada. The company says the office is part of a strategic expansion of its operations along the U.S. borders. The new centre will offer a full range of customs brokerage services to truck and rail cargo transportation companies at this bridge crossing between Canada and the United States as well as for NAFTA related-cargo destined for Mexico.
“The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) has opened tremendous business opportunities along the U.S. – Canada border. Our customs brokerage unit expansion is a reflection of the positive growth that the unit, as well as the region, have been experiencing,” said Ted Iwaszkiw, vice president of customs brokerage.
Emery’s customs brokerage unit has two centralized service centers in North America, one in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, and the other in Toronto. The customs brokers network also includes 39 fully staffed offices in the United States and Canada, each managed by a licensed customs broker.
