Q. What exactly does a logistics company do? Get trucks, boats and trains lined up for shipping goods?
Chard: That’s absolutely correct. We are a full service international logistics provider. Essentially what that means to the man on the street is that people who are importing to the United States or exporting from the United States will often require some assistance to get through the process, in terms of documents, paperwork, rules and regulations. So we are really an agent that facilitates the import and export of goods.
