Posted on 07. Jun, 2013 by in 3pl

Shipping anything out of the country can be a real hassle. This comes about due to the overwhelming number of stringent regulations that you have to deal with before your package is delivered. The good thing is that there are many international logistics companies that can handle your consignment much better than you can do. Before you enlist the services of any of these companies, you need to consider a few factors.

The Types of Services Provided

You need to pay special attention to the type of services that each company offers. One of the services that can work for you is door-to-door delivery. A company that provides this type of service will handle the items right from preparation, packaging, shipment and delivery to the final destination. This service is safer and will guarantee that your shipment arrives at the intended destination.

The Process of Preparation for Shipping

Each item has its own requirements in terms of preparation. The item may need to be packaged, crated, loaded, and unloaded at the destination. This service has to be done by the logistics company so that the item reaches the destination in one piece.

Navigation through Customs

This is the most important service that any logistics company needs to do for you. This is because it is at this point you will know whether the shipment fulfills all the regulations for it to be let through or not. The logistics company that you will deal with needs to be able to help you go through customs without any hassle at all. Check to see whether the company has any experience dealing with custom navigation through international checkpoints.
