Partner with experience
In everything we do, the experience that comes with being in business for as long as we have means we’ve seen and handled every conceivable issue (so far!)
Over thirty years before Cole International became the company it is today, originating founder Horace W. Robinson taught himself to do his own customs paperwork. Since then, this initiative has evolved into a deeply knowledgeable customs compliance unit. Highly trained and certified beyond the minimum industry standards, our team is versed in everything from the history of tariffs to how to select the HS code for the shoes you’re importing. If you need cost-effective moving and warehousing solutions, we’ve got those too. Our vast network of air, ocean and land freight forwarders make sure your goods move securely—and swiftly.
Delivering creative solutions since the early 20th century
Breaking down transportation barriers and moving your business forward.
Cole International has been the best customs broker that we have had in our 40+ years being in the high end car industry. They provide fast, friendly, knowledgeable service and are very responsive to all of our company's customs needs. We ship by air, sea, and road throughout the world. They have been a light in the customs brokerage storm
