Corporation for International Business / boomerang carnets
Corporation for International Business specializes in ATA Carnets, an internationally accepted customs document used for boomerang freight. An ATA Carnet allows samples, exhibit booths and demo equipment to clear customs import duty-, tax- and hassle-free and is accepted in 82 countries and territories for up to a year. CIB has branded its ATA Carnet services as boomerang carnets since every shipment of boomerang freight that we handle goes out and comes back to the U.S.A.
Since 1987, CIB has grown to be the largest Carnet-issuing office in the U.S. and we’re the industry leader in all aspects of Carnet issuing. ATA Carnets make exhibiting and demonstrating products in another country easier and cheaper. Without a Carnet your goods will be subject to import duties and taxes.
Our ATA Carnet Specialists are trained in all aspects of Carnet use and are qualified to provide in-depth knowledge of all 82 Carnet countries and territories, Carnet bonding, and travel insurance. In addition, we are licensed insurance brokers and specialists in ATA Carnet surety bonds, cargo insurance, Carnet translations, and Lost, Stolen or Destroyed Carnet Document Warranties.
We are 100% American- and Family-Owned.

We have been called “The Big Green Umbrella” of information for one of the Largest Industrial Regions of the World!!! Not just a website, but an informational portal of Synergies and Opportunities. We’ve all heard the saying that the left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing. Well we are proud to tell you that we’re starting to get to be known for “Our Left Hand, Knowing What Their Right Hand Is Doing”
At times GreeningDetroit.com works as a Public Relations company, assisting in pushing out press releases and articles. Other times we wear our Media badges and bring additional community or industry synergies, bringing information to the surface. The interactive directories have been created as a visional aid to interconnect internal pages and their information. Adding to the conquest of creating opportunity, you will find that GreeningDetroit.com has more network possibilities than your average Joe could ever attract. So as you can see, we work very different than an advertisement agency.
Consumer’s marketing needs change as they leave work to return to their homes, and vice versa. GreeningDetroit.com serves as a resource for businesses and individuals across the Metro Detroit region. Both the community and our participating vendors provide information and resources to help consumers make intelligent environmentally conscious decisions. You will find that each button displayed is created as a separate world or its own internal website. Each represented button has been designed to highlight the resources of our region, for those particular sectors of our communities. Like everything else in the real world, each one of our buttons are interconnected with one another.
We own over 50 other domains, and plan in the future to expand to other geographic region. We will then highlight those geographic regional resources and attempt to interconnect those resources to GreeningDetroit.com’s resources. The interconnections will be used to explore synergies among the regions and provide end result of opportunities for both regions. This larger concept can only be accomplished by finding the right “local economic partners” from different regions. So, if you have what it takes and the interest in participating let us know…

The Earthwise Group is a network of locally-owned, independent window and door manufacturers. Our distribution covers the majority of the United States, but as local and regional demands differ, so do our product and service offerings.

Only The Earthwise Group can offer the safety and security of a national organization along with the flexibility and market knowledge of a local manufacturer.
Backed by the combined strength and knowledge of its members, Earthwise products consistently meet and exceed the high standards set by Energy Star, the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), and the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA). From conception, to engineering and product testing, and through final assembly, Earthwise windows and doors are made for a lifetime of beautiful functionality and maintenance free service.
In addition to the security of our Lifetime Limited Warranty, all Earthwise products have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal!
