paul testimonials

“We have used Customs and Forwarding Services for all our Imports and Exports since 1995. They handle all our daily import/export forwarding including container clearance, unpack and delivery. Where they really excel is in the handling of our large equipment project shipments, managing all aspects of the freight movement from our overseas supplier/manufacturer to our sites here in Australia. I recommend Customs and Forwarding Services to anyone who needs Import/Export Services no matter how large or small.”

ray testimonials

“We have worked with CFS as our Freight Forwarder internationally for over 20 years. Their level of service, as have their staff, remained constant over the entire time. Should there be an issuer they will keep you updated & best options similarly for clearance, any size shipment. There are plenty of Forwarders to choose from out there but few can boast the same staff & great level of experience.”
