International Shipping Rates
Ocean rates are base upon the cubic space (cubic meter or cubic feet) in the ocean container that the cargo occupies with the cost varying, depending upon the country and city destination.
The most efficient way to ship is to use standard moving boxes measuring 24" x 18" x 18" and jumbo boxes measuring 24" x 18" x 24".
These boxes will stack and stow evenly on a standard ocean shipping pallet.
Although this is the best and most cost effective method, irregular box sizes can be handled but might incur slightly higher shipping costs.
Our rates cover warehouse receiving, tallying, loading into container, documentation and ocean transport to delivery and unloading of the cargoes at the destination warehouse.
These costs are included in your freight rate.
However, there will be local destination/delivery charges upon warehouse release per custom of the port. This charge can either be prepaid or collected upon delivery. It is also important to understand that customs clearance, duties and taxes, if any, are the obligation of the consignee receiving the shipment.
In most countries, it is possible to clear customs yourself and normally duty is not imposed on your own used personal effects. We cannot be held responsible for customs entry, but our delivery agent can offer service should you choose.
Lastly minimum charges are standard in the ocean transport industry and warehousing facilities. We attempt to keep these as low as possible and are mentioned in the freight quote given and the shipping rates.
