With the focus from CBP shifting to enforced compliance, leading companies realize it is critical to analyze all aspects of the supply chain. We have the vast background required in understanding and implementing the regulations to help our clients move in the changing regulatory maze.
Prior to starting Mullins International Solutions, a compliance training and consulting firm for the international trade industry, in April 2012 Donna served as Branch Manager for the Atlanta office of CV International. In March 2010, Donna merged her company, Alpha Sun International, Inc in with CVI.

While owning Alpha Sun International, Donna led the group through C-TPAT certification and assisted many customers in obtaining C-TPAT certification. Donna has served in the international transportation community since 1982, where she began as an importer of wholesale merchandise. Upon leaving the import side of the trade, Donna started her career in the brokerage and transportation arena.
Donna’s list of nationally recognized service positions is the leading indicator of why MIS is the choice in compliance training. These affiliations have put her in the position to help set the course of the logistics industry. Because she is there on a national level communicating the policy changes and working hand in hand with CBP, BIS, FMC, and others, she is well versed in the regulations and the other government agencies that can be involved in what seems like the most straightforward of transactions but in fact is very complicated.
In 1990 she received her US Treasury Customs Brokers License. Ms. Mullins has held various volunteer positions including President and Chair of the IFFCBHA (International Freight Forwarders and Customs House Brokers Association of Atlanta); President and Chair of the AACA (Atlanta Air Cargo Association); Board of Director for the AMA (Atlanta Maritime Association); and currently serves as the Air Freight Subcommittee Committee Chair for the NCBFAA Transportation Committee as well as NCBFAA Area 4 Director. Donna has held an Adjunct Professor position with Clayton State University where she was involved in the Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
