The New NAFTA 2.0


NAFTA - as we knew it - is coming to an end.  Is your business ready for the New NAFTA?   Issuing an unsupportable FTA certificate is treated as tax fraud by many countries.  Do you have an auditable process?

We can help you protect yourselves and your customers - both domestic and international - in this new enforcement regime.

A Note To Prospective Clients


The American Economy is Back!

From raw materials and components to complex finished products, American factories and distribution centers are working overtime as the economy rebounds!

But along with new orders comes the complexity of Trade Compliance, a field of specialty that touches every role and every product, but is rarely even mentioned in business school.

That's where we come in.  We aren't looking for transportation business or software design gigs.  We specialize in training, and that's all we do.  Our trainers are expert at making these obscure rules comprehensible to all audiences. 

We will help you meet and exceed your customers' expectations, protecting yourself and your clients, through a compliant trade process!
