Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce Earns Coveted ICC Accreditation
An additional prestigious international certification is now available to Florida exporters. The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) has awarded the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) the distinguished International Certificate of Origin (CO), inviting GMCC to join more than 775 chambers from 31 countries using digital documentation with the most stringent and universal certification standards currently available.
“This certification means Florida exporters will enjoy all the benefits of the digital Swiftdox trade documentation platform as well as save time and money,” said Sam Samya, founder and president of Fast Track Global Services, Swiftdox’s parent company, the preferred online certification platform. Additional benefits include increased security, reduced costs, faster submissions, better customs verifications, and quicker customs clearances. Samya added, “The certificates are also eco-friendly and more importantly, they eliminate the need for physical documents, which are easily lost and can lead to expensive demurrages.”
Liane Ventura Guerra, Senior Vice President for International Business and Executive Director of the Greater Miami Foreign Trade Zone #32 commented, “The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, one of the oldest chambers in the nation, is pleased to receive this internationally acclaimed accreditation from ICC. We are proud to have this accreditation that will serve the more than 57,000 exporters in the ate of Florida as they continue to meet the highest standards set by the ICC with their documentation certificates. The Chamber is at the forefront of working with governments, other chambers, and private companies around the world to digitize trade documents so that Florida businesses can clear customs in an expedited manner. ”
