Automotive High performance.

Automakers want start-to-finish excellence. For over 75 years, Livingston has cleared the path rapidly and carefully. Cross-border. Cross-country. Worldwide.

Global supply chain support. Just-in-time control.

Automakers need partners they can rely on because nothing is easy. Joint ventures are global. Supply chains are far-flung. Consumer demand is unpredictable. Your trade partner has to be able to turn on a dime. And not miss a beat. We do it all the time.

Get there faster.

JIT requires the flexibility of 24/7 border clearance. Livingston offers you that flexibility — and improved clearance speed. We are tightly networked to automate information flow, improve compliance, and provide instant shipment status visibility.

Stay compliant without the effort.

Our expert team actively advocates for automotive importers and exporters. On your behalf, we deal with every detail required by Customs, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Department of Transportation (DOT). So you don’t have to.

Leave the classification details to us.

As many as 15,000 individual components are required on some vehicles. We specialize in managing exceptionally large databases of products for classification, including exceptions — like goods previously exported for repair with no determined value. We’ll take care of it.

Put money back in your pocket.

Are you taking full advantage of duty drawback, FTZ, and free trade agreements? We can advise you on free trade agreements, duty reclamation, and the solicitation and maintenance of suppliers. Put money back in your pocket.

Work more confidently in Mexico.

Our bilingual Mexican trade specialists and on-site staff help you meet Mexican export requirements for drayage providers, as well as negotiating, selecting, or managing all other service providers. To improve your supply chain efficiency, we offer exceptional workflow tools and systems.

Freight and Vehicle Transportation.

We offer air freight solutions for time-critical movement of high-value parts to avoid plant shutdowns and support recalls. And when it comes to commercial and corporate vehicle moves, we meet the special needs of automakers, car dealerships, vehicle auction houses, and moving companies. Count on us.
