Minority Owned Business Certification

As of May 1, 2016, National Shipping of America has been certified as a Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE).
National Shipping is owned by Dr. C. C. Chen, a resident of the U.S. Territory of Guam and a naturalized U.S. Citizen.
Many corporations and government agencies have programs that support diverse and/or small businesses. The benefits of these programs are different from one entity to another, but as a general rule, they offer incentives to prime contractors to utilize these businesses, have set-aside programs for diverse and small businesses, and provide preference allowances for qualified businesses.
Numerous large corporations have put into place supplier diversity requirements and policies in order to increase the number of minority business enterprises they source. Many of these policies are mirrored by the US Government contract requirements to support minority small businesses.
Of particular interest, companies that source minority owned business suppliers can see benefits in the form of tax incentives, rebates and breaks.
If you or your suppliers have a diversity program in place, this could be of special interest.
