Ilyse Dawicki, managing director of customs services, recently attended the Government Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C., representing Pilot Customs Brokerage. Ilyse, along with peers from the National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association of America, lobbied for support of the issues facing the transportation industry. “We need our politicians to actively address the major concerns around protecting our importers and the security of the U.S.,” says Ilyse. In addition to gathering with members of Congress, the group met with Kevin McAleenan, acting commissioner of customs, and Brenda Smith, executive assistant commissioner, office of international trade.
Pilot has offered in-house customs brokerage services since 2013, adding significant value to our international portfolio. “We handle a vast array of customers, commodities and entry types, including FDA-regulated products,” Ilyse says. “Choosing Pilot for worldwide shipments brings customers a greater peace of mind, knowing one partner can handle every step in the process of delivering goods. Our customers can also be reassured that outside of our day-to-day operation, Pilot is engaged in making sure the right regulations for the transportation and logistics industry are enacted.”
