My name is Robert James Hobson (Bob). I am the president of Service Plus International Inc. My career in the Customs Brokerage business started in the early 70's in my home island of St. Kitts in the British West Indies. In St. Kitts, I worked for two manufacturer's representative firms- Delisle Walwyn & Co. Ltd and Frank B. Armstrong Ltd. It is with these companies that I learned very valuable information and realized that I wanted Customs Brokerage to be my career.
I moved to Canada in 1974 and have been a Customs Broker since 1975. After working as a Senior Rater and Branch Manager for a Canadian Brokerage Company for over 20 years, in 1994, I fell victim to corporate restructuring and was laid off. It is this lay off that inspired the commencement of my company - Service Plus International Inc.
I created Service Plus International Inc. in May of 1995. Throughout my career, I've always felt that there was a tremendous need for a global company that specialized in international trade shows as well as import, export and freight logistics. For all businesses needing freight, import and export representation, we are that company! our staff is committed and dedicated to providing you, our clients a competitive and top rate quality service.
Since September 11, 2001, the Transportation and Customs Brokerage industry has undergone many changes with special emphasis on security, safety, and Compliance. Now more than ever, it's extremely important for all companies, large or small, to have freight and customs related partnerships locally and around the globe. Positive alliances are needed and are crucial to the longevity, and trustworthy practices of businesses. Proper documentation that coincides with Customs rules and regulations at all global clearance ports is critical and must be taken seriously. It is important that businesses are not penalized through various governmental programs due to missed information. We at Service Plus International Inc., will do everything within our control to ensure that this does not happens to our clients.
