About Dominion Customs Consultants Inc. (DCC) DCC was established in 1981 by Arthur Briggs and John Preston. Long-time customs industry veterans, they identified that companies with established supply chain departments routinely overpaid the duties on their imported goods and made the decision to strike out on their own.

They recognized that starting yet another customs brokerage operation and also charging their clients to recover the duties already paid to the government represented a conflict of interest. Drawing on their commitment to service, they set out to create a trusted logistics and supply chain resource to enhance their client’s operations.

Today, DCC has assembled a team of more than 20 dedicated professionals and continues to grow, providing international trade consulting, global duty recovery and customs compliance support to North America’s leading importers and exporters.

Whether it’s developing unique customs compliance programs, optimizing supply chain security, connecting businesses with an Authorized Economic Operator program, or supporting in-house Compliance Departments, DCC provides your team with the guidance and the right tools to thrive.

To take advantage of DCC’s membership benefit, contact Stuart Pringle at or Toll-Free at 1-888-888-3443 extension 239.
