About ACM Logistics & Consulting Inc.

ACM Logistics prides itself on professionally coordinating the intricate details of international shipping — whether by plane, ship or truck. Located in Houston, we are strategically situated near the Port of Houston and have easy access to the Houston George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) with direct flights to over 180 cities worldwide.

ACM is committed to bringing calm and clarity to the global supply chain. We understand that often clients are overwhelmed by the codes, fees and processes behind importing and exporting products and delivering or receiving products on time and on budget. As a federally licensed U.S. customs broker, Federal Maritime Commission licensed, and TSA approved Indirect Air Carrier, ACM collects the needed information about your shipment, creates plausible narratives about the situation and develops a good framework that points to the best course of action to move your shipping containers, breakbulk cargo, and airfreight to the intended recipient as quickly as possible.

Our U.S. Customs Brokerage, global transportation and trade consulting services create happy and loyal long-term client relationships. ACM employs proven experts in clearing cargo into the United States and we maintain the required licenses to provide a total suite of international logistics services. This allows our clients to trust ACM Logistics for all its global shipping needs.
