GWL was founded by John Ting in 1978. His vision was simple: a logistics
company that provided true cross-border 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
