At CH Powell, a “progress together” way of doing business has moved us forward since our founding in Boston, Massachusetts in 1919. We are a fourth-generation family business that has prospered by recognizing the importance of each team member and fostering the ultimate goal of enabling the success of our customers.
For nearly a century, we have helped the flow of imports and exports that have fueled our country’s growth. We have been partners with great industries through rise and fall and transformation. We are participants in history – from our shipping and storage of British wool during the World War II Lend-Lease Program to receiving the President’s “E” Award for excellence in Export Service and being granted the first freight forwarder cargo booking aboard a NASA space shuttle. Yet we are driven by the innovation and opportunity that lies ahead.
The new century sees CH Powell executing its global strategy with our founding of Tandem Global Logistics – our platform for providing supply services and asset visibility to customers worldwide. Our growth follows a persistent pursuit of delivering value through personalized service and trade and regulatory expertise to our clients every day.
