Before Shipping Internationally make sure you Research Costs

It’s really Important before entering into an overseas trade of goods that you look into everything involved in shipping internationally. Costs you need to consider before shipping internationally can be, but not limited to :
  • What method will you need to use for the Cargo ?
  • Is it more cost effective to airfreight rather than have additional handling costs with LCL ?
  • How quickly do you need the cargo to get to the destination ?
  • Are there any Export regulations or criteria you need to meet ? For example do you need to clean the machinery, can you place personal effects inside a vehicle,  ?
  • How much extra would it cost for marine transit insurance and what coverage will that give you ?
  • What forms will you have to fill out and be required to have to change ownership ?
  • Where does your responsibility for charges relating to the Cargo start and Finish ?
  • Do you need a certificate of Origin if your product was made in Japan but your shipping it out of Australia to the Middle East ?
  • Can any Machinery be shipped to the USA or India?
  • Will I be charged VAT/GST or Import Tax on my personal Tools when I ship them back home ?
  • Can I use a boat trailer as my shipping cradle ?
  • What is the duty calculation if I am only temporarily touring a country in my motorhome ?
