Ken Lehat & Associates, Inc. | Customs Brokers | International Freight Forwarders


It is a pleasure to work with a company where customer service comes first.

Ken’s depth of knowledge with the importing of food and agricultural products is the reason he has been our customs broker for so many years. As the importing of these commodities are subject to more government regulations and inspections, it is important to use a broker that knows how to best resolve any import issues.

We have been doing business with Ken Lehat and Associates for many years. It has been a mutually beneficial collaboration. The staff has always been professional and efficient. In addition – and perhaps more important to us – has been the unique understanding of the idiosyncrasies of food importation in general that KLA offers, as well as the concrete suggestions on how this should be applied to the specific needs of our particular industry.

The challenges the Food Safety Modernization Act will only bring on more challenges for those of us in this industry. Our working relations with Ken Lehat and Associates undoubtedly will assist us to meet those challenges.

We’ve worked with the Lehats for decades and find their organization very capable, responsive and professional.

For the past 30 years, Ken Lehat and Associates have been our customs brokers. They make all of our import entries and organize our export documentation. They keep current on US Customs, FDA, USDA regulations and promptly inform any meaningful changes that would affect our business. Their tracking systems are state of the art and their follow through is conscientious. They are a 24/7, full-service organization with whom it is a pleasure to work.
