At CATTS, we understand that trade compliance can be a daunting task for many companies. Our goal is to simplify the process and provide tailored solutions that meet our clients' unique needs.
We work closely with our clients to understand their objectives and provide the support they need to achieve them. With a large global team, proprietary technology and partners, we are well-positioned to provide comprehensive solutions for our clients.
Our vision is to inspire and innovate Customs & Trade Compliance.
The mission of CATTS is to provide excellent Customs & Trade Compliance services at scale.
Our company was founded in 2016 by Peter Bulters and his son Nick Bulters, who have a combined 50 years of experience in trade compliance management.
Peter Bulters, our CEO, is a former Senior Vice President of Global Trade Governance at a major international customs broker. He began his career in trade compliance as a customs official in 1983. Since then, he has held senior trade compliance positions within a major financial institution as well as at Fortune 500 logistics and technology companies. Through his experience, he noticed that many companies lose sight of their objectives due to internal politics and power struggles. This led him to start CATTS with a true practical, customer-centric approach and a commitment to partnership.
Nick Bulters brings his organisational skills to the CATTS crew. With a background in software and project management in the global trade industry, he ensures that our solutions and services are both efficient and effective. Together, Peter and Nick lead a team of professionals who are dedicated to helping clients navigate the complex world of trade compliance.
Since our founding, we have grown from a two-person consulting company to an organization with more than 100 people around the world. Our team includes experts in trade compliance, technology, and project management, allowing us to provide comprehensive solutions to our clients.
We are directly active in 50 countries, support customers in 15 different languages and with our extended network, we provide other service - and software providers with trade content for 152 countries. We proactively share knowledge and write publications which get shared in the form of articles and a monthly newsletter on global compliance topics and updates.
