We love receiving feedback from our clients! This way we can stay on top of our service and provide you with the knowledge you need to succeed in the industry.

“It has provided a great foundation and a decent road map to CTPAT Certification. We have way too many of our containers pulled for “Random” Inspections and I want to develop a program/manual for the Import process of our company.”

    I was looking for general information to begin this quest. The entire presentation was beneficial to me, and really value the examples provided, as well as ways to fund this endeavor by simply changing shipping terms and some protocols. It will allow me to become more educated in topics that are vital to ensuring trade compliance and will help the company avoid costs and lower our budget. I am always impressed by GTC.”

      “I needed an update in the changes and the instructor did a superb job. I could not believe how Karma covered so much material in record time. It was as excellent I would not change anything. “
