“Just a quick note to you to tell you how much we appreciate Ted’s help on two recent shipments to Chicago. We had a supplier who made a mess of their SID# filing, and this caused a good deal of concern with the local FDA office. As we got the situation resolved, the case was transferred to a very challenging FDA officer in the local compliance division. Ted helped us navigate the challenges we faced and got our goods cleared in a week’s time –pretty incredible given the situation. We just wanted to make you aware of all the help that Ted gave us on this – we really appreciate your help in supporting our business!”

“I have been working with American Shipping for over 20 years. I have always found their rates competitive, but it is their service that adds the extra value for me. Their staff is knowledgeable and courteous and their response time is prompt. I know I can trust their expertise when inquiring on anything from customs regulations to import logistics in a new port….. Using them for our freight forwarding, customs brokerage and inland trucking allows us to maintain a smooth flow from the time the goods leave the factory until the time they reach our customer's door and I can access real time tracking along the way”

“Our company represent companies in the USA and overseas. Recently we just moved into importing and had no idea how to go about importing machinery from overseas. We contacted LoriBeth Melchiorri of American International Cargo Services. She helped us with all the legal and customs paperwork that needed to be completed. She always responded quickly to all our questions and advice us on what to do and not to do. American International Cargo Services is now handling our second importing job and we feel confident to used them on all our importing and shipping needs. They always find us the best price and quality service.”

“I have been doing business with American International Cargo Service for a couple of years. We send an antifreeze type solution to China for various construction projects. To say that shipment dates, money transfers and confusion to quantities requires multiple changes before the project is actually shipped is an understatement.American International Cargo Service takes every one of my changes with a positive attitude and a professional manner. Their flexibility and expertise in arranging my freight to get to its Chinese destination in a predictable and timely manner does what every manager hopes for. They make me look good.

“Jennings International has been working with LoriBeth Melchiorri since 1998. Her skills and expertise are a true asset to The American Companies. In the age where ‘Google It’ just rolls off your tongue, our first inclination is to ask LoriBeth. She is a great resource with years of experience. Jennings International has been in business building Extrusion Equipment for the PTFE market since 1953. Our days are filled with design engineering and manufacturing. We do not spend time determining the logistics of worldwide shipping. When our equipment is finished, tested, and ready for shipment, we rely on our strong relationship with LoriBeth to handle the details of the shipment. She handles all aspects of the shipment from our door to the customer’s door. She handles the trucking, the containerization, the loading at the port, the ocean shipment, the customs clearance, the de-containerization, the delivery to the end customer. She handles all the details of payment by Letter of Credit and Insurance. She has provided sound judgment and offered many words of advice making sure our Letters of Credit are properly worded ahead of time, so that when it comes to shipment, the payment is made easily. She is a true blessing for our company. Jennings International has recently entered new markets in Russia. LoriBeth was instrumental in providing certain details that were included in the Purchasing Contract that would have been overlooked without her meaningful and timely advice. We are very pleased to work with LoriBeth and The American Companies on all of our overseas shipments."
“Hi Roy/Chris (and all others who helped us get these hot containers delivered into Linn at The American Companies), I just wanted to extend our appreciation for your dedicated attention in getting all these containers delivered! Very much appreciated! I was on a call this morning with my boss from London (as you can imagine, everyone has their eyes on these shipments!). Peter mentioned to me to be sure to let you know how impressed he is by your performance in keeping us up to date. He mentioned that the communications you are providing are being transmitted “to the top” (which means the big big guy ). So please know that we at Elsevier (from bottom -me- to top - Adrian in Amsterdam- are very much appreciative of your efforts on keeping us informed!”

“The American Companies has been our overseas shipping forwarder for quite a few years now. We have never encountered any logistical problems with any of our shipments. LoriBeth and her team are experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly to deal with. After booking a shipment to China with my company doing the drayage, I asked LoriBeth last minute if she could find a drayman instead. She did indeed and no dates were pushed back or missed. They have the right answers every time. I would recommend them to anyone, and I have.”

“When I started my company in early 2009 a key component was logistics and international freight for my products. I wanted a company that would partner with me, not just be a supplier. The American Shipping Company has been just that, a partner in my business. I feel they have grown with me, helping me in moving my products from Australia and China into the United States. When something is needed – and at times with very short timelines – the American Shipping Company has come through."
“We have been using American Shipping as our import broker for many years, and have found them to be very efficient and economical. Their service is excellent and it is a pleasure to work with their staff.In addition, their overseas agents are also very professional, especially regarding complying with ISF requirements. We enthusiastically recommend them."

In a sometimes confusing process of international imports and exports it's important to have a experienced team such as the American Companies on your side.”
“The American Companies/CDW MERCHANTS WOW! AWARD - Barbara Friediger
STORY - This was one of the most challenging startups of any product we've done at Amazon. The team actually pulled off getting product out of China on the very last day prior to a 7 day National Holiday. The suppliers were dead on and American Companies was amazing with all of us having many late night communications, conference calls and emails only pulling off the successful shipments in the final hour. Phew! This WOW is for against all odds, getting it done. Great work team!
OUTCOME - Customer is happy with basically no help from them in pulling off the impossible with throwing many last minute changes at us constantly. Just try to get that elsewhere. Again, great coordinated effort on our part.

“I’ve had contact several times recently with a new customer service rep, Joseph Lopez. (New to me – not sure if he’s new to American). He is wonderful! Very professional, friendly and a joy to work with! All of your reps are amazing, by the way. He just struck me as exceptional.”
