By Fernando Rodriguez, VP at A Customs Brokerage

I recently returned from attending the TISE and KBIS trade shows, and I wanted to share some of my reflections from these exciting events. As the Vice President of A Customs Brokerage, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to connect with leaders and innovators in the tile and stone industry and learn about the latest trends and advancements.

One of the key takeaways from the shows was the importance of inventory management for importers.

With a growing demand for tiles and stone products, it’s essential for importers to have a robust inventory management system in place to ensure that they’re meeting the needs of their customers and staying ahead of the competition. At A Customs Brokerage, we understand the importance of inventory and work closely with our clients to ensure that their supply chains are optimized and their products are delivered on time and in the right quantities.

Another positive trend that I noticed at the shows was the overall optimism and positivity in the industry. Despite the challenges posed by the current global climate, industry leaders and participants were upbeat and excited about the future. This optimism is a testament to the resilience and innovation of the tile and stone industry, and I’m proud to be a part of it.

Finally, I was struck by the importance of relationships in our industry.

Whether it’s between manufacturers and suppliers, suppliers and customers, or customers and end-users, strong relationships are the foundation of a successful business.

At A Customs Brokerage, we understand the value of building relationships with our clients, partners, and colleagues. That’s why we work hard to provide the highest level of customer service and build long-lasting partnerships based on mutual trust and respect.

In conclusion, my time at TISE and KBIS was both educational and inspiring, and I’m looking forward to continuing to support and grow the tile and stone industry. If you’re in need of customs brokerage, freight forwarding, or warehousing services, I invite you to get in touch with A Customs Brokerage and see how we can help you achieve your goals.

Best regards,

Fernando Rodriguez
