Another Successful Carrier Appreciation Reception

Pacific Customs Brokers would like to extend their gratitude to all guests who attended the 3rd Annual Carrier Appreciation and Cross-Border Reception held at Eaglequest Coyote Creek Golf Course in Surrey, B.C. A special thank you to Canada Border Services Agency, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement for their participation. We would also like to thank the B.C. Trucking Association in showing their support by attending this function.

Greg Timm, President of Pacific Customs Brokers says:

"Pacific Customs Brokers considers carriers key partners and allies in our effort to service importers. We spend a great deal of our thought and energy advancing the concerns of carriers to make their cross-border journey faster and simpler. We thank the government stakeholders who engaged with our guests, and especially we thank all of the good people in the trucking industry who joined us for our Carrier Appreciation and Cross- Border Information Event".  

The event drew a large crowd of owners, general managers, operation managers, customs managers, dispatch administrators, shipping coordinators, and self-carrying importers from the transportation sector.

It was an evening of networking among industry partners with live music and great food! Guests traveled as far as California, Oregon, Michigan, Washington, Vancouver Island and the central interior of British Columbia.

Government Officials from Canada Border Services Agency, U.S. Customs Border and Protection and the Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement were on-hand to field questions related to cross-border topics. It was well worth their time as the guests asked many thought provoking questions.

Congratulations to Arek Koscinski of MC Freight Systems; this year's lucky winner of an iPad Mini!

Thank you again for everyone's continued participation for another successful event. We hope to see all of you again next year!
