Every load of cargo that is exported or imported must go through the destination country’s customs clearance process. Rules, laws, and regulations, vary for each country and can even vary between ports within the same country. Once goods go through customs clearance, they get placed in a warehouse until they reach their final destination. One way to make the process goes smoother is by employing the services of a freight forwarder. Freight forwarders deal with customs agents and submit the right paperwork so that its one less thing you have to worry about.
COST AND TIME EFFICIENT SHIPPING
If there is an issue with the customs clearance of your cargo, it can result in a delay in the delivery of goods. Most of the time you will be responsible for the additional warehouse and storage fees— which could be hundreds or even thousands of dollars. In addition to these costs, the delay in delivery may have a negative impact on your business.
A freight forwarder can handle the customs clearance process of your goods, helping to avoid any costly delays. It is critical that you select a freight forwarder experienced in customs clearance. An inexpensive freight forwarding business may save your business money, but cost you issues if they do not have sufficient experience in the process.
