Customs – the most important integral part of international shipping & moving
Most of the exporters/importers are using professionals such as Customs Brokers, Freight Forwarders & international shipping service providers because every country’s customs has trade compliance regulating the commodities either leaving (export) or coming-in (import).
All exporters & importers are expected to understand and comply with these regulations including the individuals who might just be moving their personal household goods.
There is much more than just customs compliance for an international shipper because each shipment has multiple vendors involved in process to get a shipment from origin to destination. The shipper must understand the role & complications of each vendor involved and should have coordination among them so that the shipping cost is reasonable and the transit time is dependable. In number of years with appropriate licenses, process, equipment and software updaes, exposure to regulations & supervision, we are very adept in meeting our clients’ expectations. Our team of professionals is well versed with recent trade regulations, available shipping options, contracts and relationship with quality vendors (most of them are C-TPAT approved) to benefit our clients with low cost in shipping and hassle free move.
Our worldwide network of agents, tested from many years in business, do a better job than our competitors because we have multiple choices at each overseas port/country to utilize depending on the need your shipment requires. Please visit our other web pages for the details on our other services, such as origin pickup, destination delivery, Insurance, Packing etc..
All compliance & requirements can only be smoothly done if the documents of the shipment are in order. We guide our clients from the beginning of their transaction and check the shipping documents meticulously to assure that they are in order before the arrival of the shipment. Documents not in order or not provided timely can cause not only the delay in transit but also a big expense due to storage, detention of equipment etc..
Some of the requirements listed above are required before the goods are shipped such as ISF for ocean shipping. Our import specialist setup the importer with customs, have bonds in place and communicate with the exporter or their agent to comply with ISF regulation. Even if the importer is late for some reason, we guide them with the best options available and do our best to expedite preparing them for their shipment in transit and suggest what is best in their interest to avoid penalty/fine/examination, delay & additional cost. Clients find us very useful & professional in guiding in every situation which ultimately saves them hassles, delays & expenses.
Our handling fee for these services is quite nominal and very competitive among the competition.

Each of our client is assigned one sales person to quote rates with one coordinator to serve & perform the operation, providing the dependability you deserve.
