I highly recommend Arthur's training courses. He made the class very enjoyable, easy to understand and during breaks he shares amazing stories about his experience. My coworker highly recommended Arthur and now I see why. If you do not attend his class, you are missing out!
Global Trade Compliance Operations at Chevron Phillips Chemical Company
Arthur O'Meara engaged our group and challenged us to look at trade terms in a completely different manner. I really enjoyed the seminar.
Jeff Morse, Customs Manager
The best, most entertaining presentation on INCOTERMS ever attended.
Having been a client of Arthur’s, I find him to be very experienced, competent and well-versed on import / export compliance issues and Harmonized Tariff Schedule classifications.
Arthur is client-focused, making certain that he has given the proper answers, options and strategies and that his client understands the reasons behind his position. Arthur’s consulting style is based on achieving a high level of customer satisfaction. This is evidenced by his detailed, knowledge-based recommendations and subsequent follow ups with the client.
Arthur has many contacts and resources to augment his own knowledge base and to provide different perspectives on specific granular issues. From my experience, if Arthur is not able to provide an immediate answer (which is a rare occasion) he gathers his resources, researches the issues and provides a quick turnaround.

Arthur is an exceptional instructor and has the ability to provide his students with information that nobody can copy. He is filled with knowledge and is very willing to share the information with anyone willing to learn. Arthur is also willing to help his students with anything they might need after attending his class. He is one of the most personable, experienced, and knowledgeable instructors that I have ever had the pleasure of learning from.

In my role as FTA Analyst, I interface with Arthur quite often for consulting advice. Arthur is the 'gold standard' of knowledge when it comes to global trade compliance and customs regulations. Arthur has expert level knowledge with 19 CFR import regulations, and has the ability to describe the practical application into our business environment. I attended a NAFTA training session that Arthur hosted, and Arthur was able to answer all of the questions that arose throughout the training. I highly recommend Arthur as a trusted resource for any trade compliance related topic.
Crystal Ester, FTA Analyst
Arthur is a seasoned international trade professional with a level of expertise rarely encountered in our field. he is also exceptionally business savvy and excels in meeting business challenges while simultaneously running an excellent trade compliance program.
Tim Gillion, International Trade Manager
Robert Bosch Corporation
Arthur is a consummate professional who has expert knowledge in the areas of import/export, the EAR (US Export Administration Regulations), and the ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations).
He has exceptional ability to present information in such areas to groups, in both a public speaking mode and in a corporate training setting.
ANX & Covisint at Open Text, Inc.
Arthur is a dedicated trade professional who has the necessary feel for all aspects of trade. He takes a holistic view of trade matters before offering an opinion...that is time & money well spent.
He is also a very accomplished speaker on several trade related subject matter areas and always keeps an ear open to new ideas or interpretations. His sense of humor is also an inviting quality.
I have known Arthur for over 20 years; first as a colleague while at Bosch and later as a consultant on a variety of trade related topics. He is a gentleman of great knowledge, logic, and humor.
Arthur's presentation material is thoughtful in addressing the topic at hand as it provides all the relevant background information in a manner that keeps your attention. It is his delivery, though, that sets him apart from other trade experts. He can address most any scenario presented to him with logic, and sound fundamentals.
Engagement of Mr. O'Meara is always a value added investment.

Arthur is a true professional in every sense of the word. He is highly experienced and knowledgeable in all areas of Trade Compliance including Customs regulations, EAR, ITAR, OFAC and INCOTERMS. He is thorough and detail oriented and truly delivers on his commitments. Arthur also provides his services at competitive rates. I highly recommend him.
Jim Navagh,Sales Coordinator
I worked with Arthur on a global project to achieve C-TPAT certification for Bosch Rexroth for all imports into the US. During the whole project Arthur demonstrated excellence in both his work itself and his work ethics. He showed exceptional dedicatin to fulfill the project on time, keeping the approved budget by even exceeding the targets set by the project scope. It was always a pleasure to work with him even within a changing environment that confronted us with tough circumstances. Finally, I have to say that over the project duration of 18 months I not only met someone with a professional attitude but also found a friend you can always revert to. Thanks and all the best for the future!
Jörg Weyer, Head of EDI Clearing Center
Bosch Rexroth AG
Arthur is one of the most knowledgeable people I've ever met in the export/import industry. Twice I have invited Arthur to present the ins and outs of INCOTERMS to an audience of multiple departments including Supply Chain, Legal, Purchasing and Finance and have seen an increased understanding and better application of INCOTERMS across our organization. His presentations are not only thorough but also entertaining and he keeps the entire audience engaged, no matter what its background. Hiring Arthur to consult on your export/import issues is a big win--all the way around.

Arthur is a professional, personable expert in the import/export compliance trade. His service to our company was exemplary, timely, and thorough, and everyone who worked with him on our project absolutely enjoyed the experience (and learned a lot at the same time!).
Manager and Empowered Official, Export Compliance
I recently saw Arthur present on air cargo security at a function co-sponsored by the ITA/GC and was very impressed. He took fairly dry material, craftily brought in the regulations and actually taught the audience. He brings a real world perspective without overpowering the topic, which is refreshing.
