Our History

In 1989, John Hayes, Sr., opened Hayes Import Inspection Service in Blaine, Washington, a USDA Import Inspection Service Station for the government. In 1996, John’s son, Tom Hayes, purchased Hayes Inspection Service from his father. Finding his own niche in the market, he diversified his services and began offering a full range of supply chain services to domestic and international customers. He renamed his business, T.C. Trading Company, establishing himself as a successful business leader in the supply chain industry for over 20 years.

T.C. Trading Company is committed to delivering exceptional, personalized, and flexible service to our international and domestic customers. We understand our customers’ needs and will work hard to provide innovative, creative, and low cost solutions that in turn, simplifies their business.

T.C. Trading Company also supports the generous volunteerism of our employees and encourages them to take an active role in their communities, to make them even better places to live and work.
