Mohawk Global Trade Advisors (MGTA)
Robert Stein’s extensive experience in Customs brokerage and freight forwarding is spread across a multitude of roles, giving him an unique perspective on the field. Working at the northern border, in both release and entry roles, helped him to learn a great deal about cross border trade and NAFTA; while his work as a regional FDA trainer and vice president for a brokerage/freight forwarding firm gave him a deeper understanding of trade compliance. As an FTZ consultant, he has guided importers through FTZ savings analysis, training, activation, and systems integration. Most notably, he’s worked with the FTZ Board in Washington D.C. to expedite FTZ applications and assist in obtaining interim production authority. Robert is also an active speaker to the trade community, lecturing throughout the year on Incoterms, import compliance, and NAFTA. He is a licensed Customs broker, certified Customs specialist, and Vice President, Customs & Trade Compliance for Mohawk Global Logistics.
