Carmichael International Expands Customs Brokerage Network To Detroit
Carmichael International Service, one of North America’s largest customs brokerage and trade compliance specialists, has announced it is expanding into Detroit, Michigan with a new full-service office.
Detroit marks the company’s thirteenth location in the United States of America and will give Carmichael a physical presence on the northern US border. Detroit was chosen in part for its strategic position among many of the country’s key automotive manufacturers and for being the city with the highest percentage of cargo moving between the US and Canada. The newly opened office will also run multiple weekday and weekend shifts to meet customer’s unique needs for round-the-clock shipments in the region.
“This move realizes our vision of offering our customers who conduct business between the US and Canada, a comprehensive brokerage solution in North America,” said Todd Boice, president of Carmichael International Service.
In the US, Carmichael operates in thirteen locations – including the recent office opening in Charlotte, NC. In addition, Carmichael offers services in Canada through a partnership with Kintetsu World Express (KWE) and Mexico via a partnership with Carmi Logistics. Each of its offices provides a full range of services, including customs brokerage, compliance management, duty drawback, and customs bond management.
Founded in 1961, Carmichael International Service is a division of APL Logistics. It employs over 200 professionals in 13 US metropolitan markets and services numerous locations in Canada through a partnership with KWE. APL Logistics is a global supply chain specialist for companies in the automotive, consumer, industrials and retail sectors.
