From Our Clients

Attending a VAGTC class, recently, on HS codes for importing has really saved our company money and time. By learning how a HS code is used assured us that we were doing things correctly and avoided costly mistakes. For someone fairly new to importing and exporting, I am extremely excited about using the courses of the VAGTC. Thank you again for all you do for West Michigan and helping West Michigan companies become leaders in the USA.
