About Us > Our Affiliations
Avalon is committed to our customers and business partners. We remain actively involved in multiple industry associations to support education and advocacy. We also offer several exclusive programs and scholarships in conjunction with leading trade groups.
As a preferred provider of the National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association of America (NCBFAA), we provide underwriting discounts for members and CCS/CES designations.
Our Errors & Omissions policy is the only one of its kind endorsed by the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA). We also partner with the association to offer the Performance Certified Program, as well as sponsor $5,000 in annual scholarships for conference attendees.
Avalon is the exclusive provider of the FIATA Group Bond Programme for NVOCCs.
Our bond products are endorsed by the National Association of Foreign-Trade Zones (NAFTZ).
