In 1956, Guido Malaterra started his career as customs agent and international carrier, in his office in the historical customs building in Valtellina street in Milan.
In those years the ECSC, the EFTA, and the European Economic Community were created. National States were defining multilateral agreements and common rules, which could facilitate goods exchanges and circulation. The aim was to support the european economy, still prostrated by the war.
In March 1957, this common will, was made concrete by the Treaty of Rome, which constituted the EEC, a regional organisation which aimed to bring about economic integration among its member states, by breaking down customs barriers.
From the very beginning Guido Malaterra, understood the urgence to keep up with those big changes. He set up a structured system to track any change in the economic and regulatory sphere, so that he could provide his customers with high professional assistance, time savings and – when possible – money savings.
In 1994 Latasped, a new operator specialized in customs clearance and shipping, was founded, with offices in Linate and Malpensa International Airports.
These two companies developped in parallel, each of them focused on specific sectors and segments. Nevertheless, both companies were eager to support their customers’ business development, by means of high quality services in stock management and customs assistance.
In 2010, Flavio Malaterra, following his father’s steps, founded CAD GB, a customs agency, to simplify customs dossiers and to ease paperworks with Public Administration, for all companies dealing with international trade.
In July 2016, CAD GB acquires Latasped business units and gives life to CAD Latasped, an innovative and dynamic company in customs assistance field.
