Who we Are

In the late 1940s, my father, Irving Lehat, translated his logistics experience with the US army into a thriving business as a Customs Broker and International Freight Forwarder. Over seventy years later, Ken Lehat & Associates is proud to continue the family legacy of excellence, integrity and efficiency.
