AIT Tahipo has been instrumental, proactive and even creative in assisting us with our logistics needs. I highly recommend their services, based on credibility, honestly, and integrity in the marketplace!


We have worked with AIT for 8 years. We find them to be extremely knowledgeable and dependable. I would recommend their services, especially on international freight, customs clearance, and trade lane optimization. If you have an import order that requires FDA processing, AIT should be your go-to CHB.
