Services for importing and exporting are many and varied. Probably the first decision is how do you want to send the shipment. Which service is best. Are you going to use air freight, road freight or sea freight.
Air Freight by direct air freight, consolidation, courier or charter.
Road Freight by groupage or full load. If full load is it a van or trailer or something in between.
Sea Freight by container or conventional service. If container is it FCL full container or LCL less than container load.
Once you have decided how to send your goods you need to check if there are any special requirements.
Do the goods come under Dangerous Goods Regulations.
Do they need Temperature Control
Do you require special documentation
Freight agents will help you through the maze of services and documentation
