A Few Words About Reinert Consulting

Reinert Consulting was established in 2008 in Canton, Michigan offering several small companies assistance with logistics analytics and cost-efficiency gains. For 3 years, we operated successfully, but in 2011 upon my return to Canada, the operations were put on hold. In July of 2020, the business was resurrected and is now a fully functioning consulting firm offering services to customers in Canada; United States; and abroad.

Reinert Consulting draws on 25 years of Logistics and Trade Compliance experience in various industries and environments including the electronics industry; consumer products; gas & oil support; aerospace; and automotive.

Recently, with the adaptation of the new CUSMA / USMCA / TMEC agreement replacing NAFTA, much of our focus is on assisting companies implement the new rules and regulations of this often-confusing trade agreement.
