Our Values

  • Clients are the reason we exist.

  • Associates matter.

    We CARE about our people – It’s why we think of ourselves as Associates, not employees.

100 Years. Four Generations. One Border.

Before computers and the Internet, before the Wright brothers' first flight at Kitty Hawk, even before the first North American automobile, George Henry Young founded GHY to unbind the chains of supply and help traders prosper. 

And while customs compliance, technology and even physical borders have changed over the past century, George Henry Young's vision of a different kind of customs brokerage – one dedicated to personal service, integrity and professionalism – has never waivered.
