History of Association


Established in the 1940s, the CBIFFAWS has sought to provide a forum to disseminate information relevant to the 40 regular members. Located in such close proximity to the Canadian Border and including the ports of Seattle and Tacoma, as the closest US ports to Asia, our membership faces a wide array of importing and exporting situations on a daily basis.

We are also an active member of the Pacific Coast Council of Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Association and the National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association of America.
