About CIB

A Brief History of Corporation for International Business

The ATA Carnet Service Center / Centralized Quality Control / Nationwide Same-Day Delivery

CIB is headquartered down the block from the historic Catlow Theater in Barrington, Illinois, forty miles northwest of Chicago and conveniently located to O'Hare International Airport. It is here, more than two decades ago, at the ATA Carnet Service Center, that CIB was established to provide claims services and issue ATA Carnets as an appointed Carnet Service Provider for the United States Council for International Business.

CIB now issues approximately 6000 carnets annually under the brand name boomerang carnets. From this ATA Carnet Service Center in Barrington CIB can deliver ATA Carnets in New York-JFK, New York-NYC-Midtown Manhattan, Dallas and Los Angeles-Long Beach for affordable same-day service.

Our Brands

CIB has branded its ATA Carnet services as boomerang carnets since every shipment that we deal with goes out and comes back to its country of exportation. We are also known as The ATA Carnet Specialists. We are the only ATA Carnet service provider / issuer whose only business is ATA Carnets.

Our latest adventure in carnet branding is transforming the word carnet into a verb: Just Carnet It and Go!

Scope of Service

We serve exporters in all 50 U.S. states from our centralized issuing facility, the ATA Carnet Service Center in Illinois. There we have extended service hours and weekend and holiday service. Satellite locations in the large manufacturing and exporting states of New York, Texas and California, provide local servicing for our clients.
