BUFFALO, N.Y., Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — ROAR Logistics, Inc., a subsidiary of Rich Products Corporation, has been granted a corporate customs broker license from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security and received authorization from the Federal Maritime Commission to operate as a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC)
“The criteria for securing a corporate custom broker license reflects the financial strength of our organization, the integrity of our executive team and the operational expertise of our Associates to conduct Customs’ business,” said ROAR President, Robert Rich III. “Customers who experience the excellent care of our domestic freight teams can expect to have their imports and exports handled timely, in a compliant manner with the quality of service that ROAR is known for throughout the country.”
