GWL was founded by John Ting in 1980. His vision was simple: a global logistics
company that provided a complete door to door service. Building on that vision, GWL
became one of the first companies in the Bay Area to combine freight forwarding
and U.S. Customs clearance. Over 30 years, we have cultivated a strong network
of partners throughout the world, from Asia to Latin America to Europe to the United
