The American Companies has provided a high quality, cost-effective level of service to the transportation community for over 100 years - our flagship business, American Shipping Company, was originally founded in 1899. As a Nationally Permitted U.S. Customs Broker & Export Foreign Freight Forwarder, we participate in all phases of the Automated Broker Interface (ACE, RLF, ACH, AES, AMS, CSI, ISF, reconciliation and all other programs), enabling us to custom clear merchandise or export your cargo as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Although established as a freight forwarder, handling internationally bound cargo in the New York Hudson River area, our focus on providing seamless product and information flow has helped us to grow to the point where we now offer an entire suite of complementary services - Customs Broker, Freight Forwarding, Logistics operations, Trucking and Warehousing.
With our strong emphasis on compliance, we have been recognized as a leader in such programs as the Importer Security Filing initiative. All of our locations are staffed with licensed Customs Brokers that offer years of expertise that professionally represent our customers and meet all regulatory requirements.
The American Companies is dedicated to creating unique partnerships that provide logistics solutions resulting in value added services that will exceed our customers’ expectations. Our ability to adapt to market changes, create new trends and provide customized solutions will continue to allow us to identify and execute key strategies with our clientele. Moving forward, our goals are to be innovative, to create modern and dependable programs, maintain industry compliance, and to deliver “One Global Solution” seamlessly connecting the hemispheres.
