Services

We look for the next opportunity to serve our customers in a greater way. We offer a wide and growing range of services from consulting to freight forwarding, customs brokerage, logistics, licensing and more.

Consulting

TLR_Consulting

TLR has robust import and export compliance programs in place. In turn, we are able to assist our customers in developing or enhancing their own compliance programs. This service is tailored to each customer’s individual needs, and includes anything from a starting outline to a fully developed written manual. Additional consulting services are also available for CBP holds/seizures, hazardous materials and trade/regulatory compliance.

Trade / Regulatory Compliance

TLR has developed close partnerships with key government agencies, and acts as a consultant to these agencies for many industry organizations. In addition, we closely monitor pending regulations that will significantly impact our customers and the transportation of their goods in the international marketplace. Finally, we have a robust software system in place which monitors all transactions against over 200 government lists for potential violations. We also offer importers and exporters access to our customer service personnel, whose knowledge and experience is unparalleled. Our employees have an average of more than 20 years of experience in the international logistics arena and regularly attend trade and regulatory compliance seminars. This translates into accurate and compliant assistance from origin to destination, whatever your needs may be.

Licensing

TLR has expanded its services to include State Department and Commerce licensing assistance. Our services now include but are not limited to: initial license application via D-trade, application tracking from point of submission to point of approval, entry of license into TLR’s license tracking software, lodging of the license with Customs and Border Protection, and decrementing license against active transactions. It is our hope that removing this obstacle will allow more and more U.S. companies to enjoy the benefits of trading in the international marketplace. Since each customer’s needs are unique, we customize this service to best fit each customer’s business model. Another key to our licensing service is our online tracking system. This program allows us to enter licenses, track exports against a license, and set up trigger notifications based on a percentage of license quantity or license expiry date. The benefits of this system are not just available to our TLR staff; we can also provide accessibility to our customers. While this system was developed for export licenses, it provides equal functionality for import permits as well. It has proven to be a key resource to importers tracking available quantities on a valid permit. Contact us today for a demonstration of this software, and to understand how our licensing service can help you break into the international marketplace.

Training and Webinars

TLR offers training to our clients in a wide variety of topics and formats. Training is conducted by knowledgable, high-level employees at the client’s location of choice or via webinar. An example of training topics include: Class 1 regulatory overview for shipping via air and ocean, C-TPAT, Focused Assessments, INCOterms, Import/Export Compliance Manuals, Letters of Credit, and many others. The training we offer is customized to meet each client’s specific needs, and may cover as many topics as necessary.
