Singapore-based NOL Group’s supply chain management unit APL Logistics has strengthened its international supply chain services by acquiring U.S. Customs brokerage and trade compliance firm Carmichael International Service.
Carmichael is one of the largest independent customs brokerage, trade compliance and consulting specialists in the United States. Founded in 1961, the Los Angeles-based firm employs about 200 professionals in 10 key U.S. metropolitan markets. For nearly two decades, APL Logistics has enjoyed a close working relationship with Carmichael in serving its customers’ U.S. Customs brokerage and trade compliance needs. This transaction allows APL Logistics to bring this service capability in-house.
