What questions come to a shipper’s mind when shipping overseas?
There is no way that is completely safe to ship overseas. In fact, there is no complete safe way of shipping at all. There are many risks associated to transportation : weather conditions, mechanical issues, road accidents, theft, loss, just to name a few. There exists two ways to ship overseas : by air or by ocean. Depending on your shipping requirements, one suits better than the other. The main difference resides in transit time needs and the dimensions of your freight.
To port means that the delivery of goods takes place at a named port. In contrast, to door means that the delivery of goods takes place at a named inland location. This means that inland transportation from the port or terminal where the goods have arrived will be required to deliver the goods to a consignee’s facility.
Choose a rigid, good quality, corrugated cardboard box, pallet or crate. Make sure your name and destination is on every unit. If you are reusing a box, be sure to remove old shipping labels or cover up old addresses. Make your boxes full and tight. Do not leave air space in your box otherwise when other boxes are stacked on top of it, the one underneath will breakdown.
Normal terminal working times are Monday to Friday between 08:00 to 17:00 local time. However, we strongly advise you take the time to verify with the appropriate terminal so they confirm their opening hours per service.
No, you do not. It is at your own-risk. If an incident occurs, your freight would be covered under legal liability standard to the applicable transportation mode. We offer cargo insurance coverage. If you choose not to take out insurance with us, you will be agreeing to not claim against us or hold us responsible for any damages or loss caused, if applicable.
Yes, you will need to. Customs is the governing agency that verifies items going into and out of a country are both legal and allowed. We suggest you to contact your customs broker whom should be able to assist you with the documents you will need to complete.
Every country has its own rules for the import and export of goods into and out of its territory, which its customs authority applies. Some goods may be restricted or forbidden for import and/or export.
Make sure to use a licensed logistics packaging company to pack guns, ammunition, food and anything hazardous including cleaning materials. Beware if the price is too low. There are a lot of operators whom will give you a very cheap rate and find an excuse to double your cost once they have possession of your freight. Make sure your boxes are all packed tight and well taped shut. Make sure your name is on all pieces. Do use a lot of bubble wrap.
There exists two loading and unloading methods for containers. There is what is called a “live load” where you usually get two hours free at loading/unloading, and if additional time is needed, extra charges are to be applied thereafter. The second method is called “drop and pick” which usually comes handy when you need more time to load/unload. The container would be dropped at your facility and collected 24, 48 hours or more following the drop of the container. The same concept is applied for 20 FT and 40 FT containers.
Unfortunately, it cannot be. There are too many aspects that could affect the rate before and during transit. For example, currency fluctuations, detention, demurrage, storage, inspection, peak season surcharge, bunker, fuel surcharge, emergency surcharge, war risk surcharge, security surcharge and other fluctuation charges.
