A valuable consultant makes all the difference for small-scale and first time importers.

We are able to guide you through the mind field of complying with the latest regulations, understanding which licenses and permits are required and associated submittable time frames, comparing transport options, obtaining a freight quote, or finding an appropriate freight forwarder that meets your business needs and compliments your business values be it cost, service, location, size etc.
Kreston Group prides itself on offering a customized personal service.
