3 Things to Take into Account When Shipping by Export or Import

The three main aspects that must be taken into account when shipping by export or import are as follows:

WHEN YOU SHOULD DELIVER OR RECEIVE GOODS

The cost and logistics management of sending goods with international transport depend on these factor. In shipping delays can be caused because of congestion, port delays, bad weather and changes of scale. Due to these factors it is not recommended to send or attempt to receive goods under a just in time method. If international shipping is needed within a time constraint you must be realistic with your estimate.

COST AND INCOTERMS WHICH ARE USED DURING THE INTERNATIONAL MARITIME TRANSPORT

The Incoterms determine what the importer is required to pay and what the exporter is required to pay, be it the freight cost, the intentional shipping and the cost of collection or delivery. Dependent on the urgency and who pays the international shipping will effect when the goods will be shipped.

TO AVOID UNEXPECTED COSTS OR DELAYS REQUIRED DOCUMENTS MUST ALL BE PRESENT AND COMPLETED CORRECTLY

When executing an international shipping you need to be completely sure that all of the necessary documents such as the invoice, packing list and other specific certificates including quality checks, origin, sanitary or others are all completed correctly for the entry or exit of the goods in the respective countries. With this, the Bill of Landing (BL) should follow the precepts of the contract to prevent delays arising during the entry or exit of the goods, and therefore any additional costs being added, often from occupying the container or terminal.
