International Shipping Freight
International Shipping of Freight means the transport of freight to and from an international origin or destination. For many years in the past shipping freight to and from other countries used to face many logistical problems and it was a huge undertaking because paper work and logistical issues stood in the way of smooth operation. In the past decade, ship transport changed dramatically and it involves commodity bulk transport in huge spaces (oil tankers, ie.) or containers transports utilizing vessels dedicated to such a service. These two modes of oversea transport created transport specialists that deal only in one of the modes exclusively. At this point, ShippingQuest efforts are dedicated to the Container transport world and there lie the major price savings the Company is able to offer.
With ShippingQuest you can choose from LCL (Less then container load) where freight of many shippers are consolidated into one container, or ship FCL (Full container load) where one rents an exclusive container for oneself. The choice of service depends on the volume of shipment. International shipping is based primarily on volume rather than weight. The most popular dimensions of containers that are offered are those of 20 feet and 40 feet in length. A 20’ container can hold approximately 24 cubic meters and a 40’ can hold approximately 48 cubic meters. Vessels in the industry operate as VOCC (Vessel Ocean Common Carrier) and agents for the vessel just like ShippingQuest are NVOCC (Non Vessel Ocean Common Carrier). ShippingQuest offers instant online quotes and bookings for Port to Port, Door to Port and Door to Door transport to and from over 100 countries. Its service becomes indispensable when it comes to help in drawing documents and licenses, matters relating to tariffs and regulations and insurance issues. One cannot face the task without such assistance, and all these benefits come with offers of rock bottom prices that no individual shipper can attain on his/its own. We recommend, thus, that a person or business contemplating on a shipment towards a foreign country or receiving merchandize from abroad, contact ShippingQuest by email or telephone or – even better – log on this site and place an order for such a service.
