From quote to delivery, we will take care of all of your international shipping needs.
In this section we will explain what is included in our prices, depending on whether it is an import or export shipment. Generally our rates include all necessary services needed to ship via ocean freight to or from another country. These prices generally exclude transactions needed in the country of destination (in the case of exports) or in the country of origin (in the case of imports).
Our export shipments are door-to-port; they include all necessary services needed to deliver your shipment to the port of destination (CIF or CFR Incoterms conditions). This means that the consignee must bear all the expenses generated at the port of destination (i.e., port charges, customs clearance and delivery of goods).
You may also send your merchandise using the FOB incoterm. In this case, the shipper covers all costs until the goods have been loaded on the ship at the port of origin. The consignee must bear the cost of shipping overseas.

Our import service functions much like our export service, only in reverse. Our import shipments are port-to-door; that is they include all necessary services from the port of origin (incoterm FOB). This means that the shipper is responsible for placing the goods on the vessel agreed between shipper and consignee.
You can also make imports under CIF or CFR conditions. In this case, the shipper has to deal with the costs until the goods arrive at the destination port, including shipment overseas, and if desired, the insurance (for more information see our incoterms guide). Under these conditions, the consignee should only take over the expenses incurred at the destination port, customs clearance, and delivery.
