Ownership

Boomerang carnets® UK is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kernow Capital Corporation (KCC) (aka boomerang carnets® in the U.S.) which has been issuing U.S. ATA Carnets as an appointed U.S. ATA Carnet Service Provider since 1987.

History

Boomerang carnets® UK's ownership comprises over 100 years of ATA Carnet issuing, automating and marketing ATA Carnets in the U.S. and that expertise is being applied to the U.K. carnet market with a vision to vastly improve the U.K. exporters' experience.

Boomerang carnets® UK, through its U.K. partner the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, can provide affordable same-day and overnight carnet service in Liverpool, London, at Heathrow and in Chicago. As is typical, carnets can also be shipped by overnight courier to anywhere in the U.K. and U.S.No. 1 Old Hall Street photo

Bernard and Co. and Lloyd's Underwriting Agency Vectura Underwriting are two examples of historical involvement in the U.K. trade, transportation and insurance markets.
