Each country operates under a different set of rules and regulations regarding the transfer of goods entering or leaving their borders. Customs regulations and laws concerning imports and exports of goods are constantly changing all over the world, sometimes even on a daily basis.


At CEFRO, we alleviate the stress of learning shipping and customs regulations so that our clients can spend more time on what they are good at – managing their core business. By knowing all these regulations and ensuring they are followed, we streamline the process of global trade as much as possible for the individual or organization.  


As customs brokerage and international trade consulting firm, we facilitate the shipment and delivery of goods across geographical borders for organizations and individuals as well as consult on global business opportunities. With offices both in the United States and in the European Union, our goal is to help your business expand internationally while keeping your cost at a minimum.
