CBT International, Inc. is a full service Customs Brokerage. Our operations are fully automated and in concert with U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s automated systems. We operate at the state of the art in electronic paperless releases with Customs and other federal agencies.
Mr. Troy Clarke, the President and owner of CBT International, Inc has over thirty-six years of international trade experience, eleven of those years as a U.S. Customs official (Commercial Operations Branch, Pacific Region). While at Customs Mr. Clarke held numerous and diverse positions, ending that portion of his career while acting in the capacity of Deputy Assistant Regional Commissioner of the Pacific Region.
CBT International began operations in 1986 and has remained under the same ownership. Our Account Executives have been with CBT for as long as 21 years and average 12 years in the field of international trade.
CBT International is a federally licensed Customs Brokerage firm that holds both local (Los Angeles/ Long Beach, LAX) and National Customs Permits allowing us to process imports nationwide. CBT International can also obtain the CBP bond necessary for importing goods into the United States.
CBT International will assist our clients in complying with the laws and regulations enforced by Customs including those of other Federal agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Agriculture, Department of Transportation, EPA, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce and others.
U.S. Customs rules can change frequently. As your Customs broker we will quickly alert clients of relevant regulation changes and make the necessary documentation available promptly. The combination of our up-to-date knowledge and attention to detail means that we will make your cargo's delivery as straightforward as possible.
Security is another important aspect of the Customs process. U.S. Customs has its security protocols, and CBT International has experience working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Customs Trade Partnership against Terrorism program (C-TPAT).
We work with businesses of many different sizes and with many different needs, but our mission remains the same: to provide your business with professional, timely, and accurate customs services.
Our clients feel confident because we provide the total support and commitment required in the import business. Click here to view our Customs Brokerage Page.
