About Us

White Rock Sunset

On the hill overlooking the Customs (CBP) compound, we are conveniently located just south of Customs at the Blaine Truck port of entry crossing.  Founded in February of 2003 by Steve Sanders we are proud of our 11 years of existence and the personal touch we give our clients, day in and day out.  February 3, 2014 was our 11th anniversary and were well on our way to our 12th year in existence, and further developing our niche` in the industry and local economy.

With a focus on assisting in the movement of goods passing into the commerce of the United States, Sanders Brokerage Services draws on the expertise and knowledge of its founding owner (Steve Sanders – Licensed U.S. Customs House Broker) who has over 41 years experience in the industry, and the 61 years of experience of our small yet agile and knowledgeable team.  We are committed to helping our clients navigate the maze of importing “red-tape” and the bevy of government agency regulations, 24/7.

 Born from the frustration of working within the confines of large corporations and their box store operations, we founded Sanders Brokerage Services with a fresh new concept.  A concept where we realize that can’t be everything to everybody, but we can be something very special to many other firms and individuals.  Quite frankly, there are many global entities whose business requirements, demands, and service needs far exceed those that a firm like Sanders Brokerage Services can offer.  However, if you’re looking for a small U.S. Customs broker that will hold your hand and provide you with that “special” personal touch please pick up the phone and give us a call or send us an email.  If you give us a call you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll be speaking to an actual person, as we do not buying into the concept of automated phone systems.

Our primary goal is to provide superlative import entry services to our clients and business partners.  While we can dispatch the occasional small parcel courier to pick-up and move your shipment across the border, and while we can make arrangements to move your product from one local to its destination please know that freight forwarding is not one of our core services.  Additionally while we can make arrangements for your goods to be trans-shipped to a warehouse for “on-forwarding”, please understand that we do not operate warehouse services.  Our “core” business is U.S. Customs House Brokerage Services.  Both freight forwarding and warehouse services are provided by third-party logistics partners.  Personally we’re very happy with the services our 3rd party service providers offer, and are confident that you’ll be satisfied with their services as well.

Keeping ourselves abreast of the ever changing import regulations is tantamount to our success – with success being ultimately measured by our clients.  Our goal is to create an office work environment that promotes and encourages personal growth, financial stability and confidence in our business partners, service providers, employees and management.  Continued careful selection of team members and an adherence to high standards with “best business practices” in mind shall lead to the success of our company and the success of our business partners.
