1987 -  2022 - Celebrating 35 Years of Returns

2022 marks our 35th anniversary. Our thirty-five years of success is due to the hard work of our dedicated employees and the belief our customers have in us. As part of our year-long tribute to them we produced our first animated video. Please watch.

In addition, we opened the family photo album for a peek at four generations in the trade and transportation industry. Enjoy the scroll.

Our Brands

CIB has branded its ATA Carnet services as boomerang carnets® since every shipment that we deal with goes out and comes back to its country of exportation. We are also known as The ATA Carnet Specialists. We are the only ATA Carnet service provider / issuer whose only business is ATA Carnets.

Our latest adventure in carnet branding is transforming the word carnet into a verb: Just Carnet It and Go!
