Introduction
As you can see that from the header the name of the company in which I choose to select is called International Goods 2 Go. Yes, this is a fictional company that focuses on the importing and exporting of goods internationally. International Goods 2 Go, seeks to establish long term customer relationships by bridging our customer's needs with our supplier's capabilities being mindful of all environmental, safety, and regulatory compliance requirements. International Goods 2 Go will continually expand our knowledge of specific industries and provide successful logistical solutions for our customers. The reason why I chose to do a company like this because I have been working in logistics for quite some time now and this industry really drives me and keeps me motivated. I liked the idea of the company being international because I believe in the benefits of building relationships overseas are as follows: Opens up new markets

Makes business for the future brighter
Diversity
Innovation tips
Gain more customers
Improves efficiency
Reduces uncertainty

Until then we have to take everything one day at a time and continue to do what has gotten us in the position we are in today. Company Overview

The two locations in the United States are known for having a very big exporting presence because of the seaports. We are also looking into opening more company locations within the United States in the future as our international clientele. The mission of International Goods 2 Go is to bring unique products which are in demand by customers & vendors and also to supplement the sales and growth of companies that take interests in our business efforts.
