LID Customs Services » About Us

LID Customs Services was founded in 1999 by Mr. Terry Forde; a registered Customs Broker.

After being employed as a Customs Officer for over 20 years at the Customs and Excise Department of Barbados, Mr. Forde decided to use his knowledge and expertise in logistics and customs brokerage to start LID Customs Services. Some of his principles, namely reliability and efficiency, are the columns of which LID Customs Services was built.

Employees are knowledgeable and capable of handling all matters related to customs brokerage and customs services for imports and exports in and out of Barbados.


Upon spending six years in the financial sector Terry Forde, Jr. joined LID Customs Services in 2010 and is presently the Operations Manager.
