From moving power production equipment from Skandanavia to the Canadian Arctic to furniture from Vietnam factories carefully delivered to homes in Los Angeles, Sam has experienced it. Above all, Sam has always had a reputation as a great customs broker.
Peter and Sam met in 2015 while Sam was working on behalf of a startup online furniture retailer. This company needed a delivery company to do residential deliveries throughout California and City Business stepped up and became a long time partner. As a side note, this furniture company grew to become a market leader and certainly found “Prosperity through Trade”
Sam and Peter got along well from the onset and vowed to go into business together some day.
