International Freight Services

Posted by Howard Trott on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 Under: Freight Services
International freight services make life easier for you as they are like one-stop shops that help you organize your shipments to other countries. Sometimes these shipping agents are also the couriers themselves, but more often, they function exclusively as agents who offer you different shipping solutions and use various courier companies, depending on their clients' needs. Carriers used are usually planes and ships.



Among the common offerings of these companies are worldwide shipping that includes LCL (loose container load) or FCL (full container load) shipments, personal effects / excess baggage shipping ideal for backpackers and foreign exchange students, customs clearance, wharf cartage and, of course, air freight.

These companies know the ins and outs of worldwide shipping, which include processing of documents containing pertinent information, such as commercial invoice, shipper's export declaration and other documents required by the carrier or country of export, import, or transshipment. These days, these procedures are completed faster and more efficient, since all documents are processed through the Internet.

And to make your shipment even more hassle-free, there are some things you should need to be aware of when sending things overseas. First of all, you need to describe your goods as detailed as possible. You must state what the items are in your package. Write down every item to make sure you avoid delays. Also remember that you need to mention the replacement value of the goods you are sending when shipping to another country.

You will also do yourself and your forwarding agent a big favor if you avoid sending prohibited or restricted items. International air freight companies and even sea cargo agents, generally do not allow sending of articles of exceptional value like precious metals and stones and antiques, real and replica firearms and ammunition, human remains or ashes, live animals, illegal goods and many others. If you try shipping any of these, you may face prosecution, imprisonment and heavy fines.

In addition to this, items like fur, ivory, jewelry made of precious metals and stones, and firearm parts, among others, are restricted in shipments. Delays, surcharges and confiscation may happen if you attempt to include them in your shipment. The best thing to do is ask your international freight services agent for a complete list of prohibited and restricted items.

Lastly, keep in mind, too, that your shipment may have custom charges. This depends on your shipping destination and the item or items you are sending. Some items incur duty and taxes, while some do not. Generally, charges like these will have to be paid by the recipient.
