The HTS Group is committed to providing safe, high-quality transportation services on a global scale. To that end, we have been pushing ahead with acquiring these certifications. To date, one of our group companies in the United States is certified with C-TPAT, and we have AEO-certified entities in Japan, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, and Thailand.
