Removing obstacles in trading ITAR goods in the international marketplace.

For more than 40 years TLR has acted as the nominated forwarder and customs broker for many of the world’s largest ammunition manufacturers, as well as many of the nation’s leading producers of ITAR commodities. Realizing the need for a knowledgeable service provider in this niche market TLR has taken extraordinary steps to set ourselves apart from our competitors.


As a registered broker and exporter with the Directorate of Defense Trade Controls we have augmented our Consulting and Licensing services to meet the needs of our customers while adhering to very stringent compliance standards. The added bonus of our registration is our ability to participate in the Foreign Military Sales program (FMS).

With specialized software to assist in decrementing licenses we can provide our customers with an extra level of compliance as well as reporting capabilities to assist in sales forecasting and understanding licensing trends.

With compliance as a foundation, TLR has put in place a comprehensive compliance reviews that all ITAR shipments must undergo. Part of this process includes screening against some 200 lists. The added benefit this provides our customers and their associates with is an added layer of compliance.

Our dedication to the ITAR industry is exemplified by our involvement and affiliation in such organizations as the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), National Rifle Association (NRA), and National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesaler (NASGW). We regularly provide industry professionals and organizations with news and regulations that will impact the transportation of their cargo and have even been asked to provide comment on pending rulings.
