We have a vast array of contacts and a network of customs brokers for customs clearance for imports and export shipments. Calculating duty amounts, customs filing, compliance with customs rules and regulations and possible custom exams, all are often overlooked but extremely important shipping procedures. We also have the ability to assess these costs internationally at the destinations our clients intend to ship to. If you are shipping to a new destination and are unfamiliar with that countries import and export regulations leave it to us! We have a network of other agents around the globe that will help our customers ensure their shipment is within compliance at the destination. Customs is a very important aspect of shipping operations but one that we can handle completely for our customers.
If you're unfamiliar with the term it simply means we are Non Vessel Operating Common Carrier, which means we don't actually own or operate any vessels, ships, or planes (we do have some of our own trucks though). What does this mean for our customers and why is this a benefit? Freight Forwarders utilize a network of vessels, truckers, air carriers, and other modes of transportation carriers to move freight and goods around the world.
If you ship around the planet it's good to know someone on the other side. Maximum Freight Worldwide has developed relationships with many agents around the globe. This allows us to transact business smoothly for our customers at the country of origin or destination. It means we have selected trustworthy partners that are also knowledgeable to ensure the journey of your goods is in great hands from point A to point B. It also allows us access to international laws and regulations of any part of the word for importing and exporting.
Simply put; Almost anything. Because of our network of carriers and vast experience in importing and exporting goods we can find the right service for the job. That means anything from a small box that needs to make it from New York to Shanghai for a relative to a large, oversize, piece of machinery that needs to make it from Shanghai back to NY for a construction project. Yes, our versatility is quite expansive.
