Some of the major considerations when choosing transport modes include: – the urgency of the shipment; – the needs of the customer; – the cost of the transport; – the size of the consignment (both weight and volume); – the value of the goods; – the nature of the goods, e.g. perishable, dangerous goods; and – the origin and destination e.g. remoteness, availability of particular transport modes, infrastructure.
International Transport Freight forwarders in conjunction with customs brokers can generally provide either several or all of these services: – advice on all aspects of international trade transactions, – assistance with or the provision of cargo insurance; – consolidating the cargo of several clients in one consolidation to increase efficiencies and reduce costs; – arranging for all transportation with the relevant carriers; – arranging for export and import customs and quarantine clearances and any required inspections; – the preparation, procurement and distribution of required documentation; – expediting the despatch of goods from the supplier; – tracking the movement of the goods and communicating this to clients; – providing warehousing and distribution services; and – preparing shipment costings.
International Transport A major benefit of using a freight forwarder is that they are able to consolidate cargo from a number of shippers from one point of origin into one container going to one destination port. Freight forwarders also offer freight consolidation services for air freight shipments
International Transport International postage services are designed to provide an efficient, simple and cost-effective service for small and relatively low-value articles. Express international courier services are designed to move small packages very quickly from origin to destination in the most convenient way for their clients.
International Transport Dangerous goods can be defined as items or substances that have the potential to cause harm to people, property or the environment. This area of transport is heavily regulated and severe penalties apply to those fail to comply with these regulations. Prior to transporting, dangerous goods must be properly declared, packed, marked and labelled in accordance with regulations. There are several organisations that specialise in all the aspects of the preparation of dangerous goods for transportation.
