Montana World Trade Center is very excited to share Empress Brokers International as the newest Featured Member!

Empress helps you find and obtain the products and materials your business needs — no matter what, no matter where. We understand sourcing decisions and logistics costs go hand-in-hand, and we work at the intersection of both to get you what you need in the most efficient manner. Sourcing is the act of getting something, especially products or materials, from a particular place. Sounds easy, but finding the right supplier, contract manufacturer, or other source can sometimes feel like trying to find a needle in a haystack. We can take the burden off of your shoulders.

Billings-based international broker specialists, Empress Brokers International.  Empress helps you navigate the shipping and logistics process to make sure the product or material gets to you by working with freight forwarders, working with compliance and US regulations, and finding warehouse and storage for your product.  For more information, visit their website at:
