Shipping is one of the oldest trades in the history of human civilization. From the first time mankind fashioned boats out of wood and tar to cross a body of water up until now, in the 21st century, overseas shipping has been the most commonly used method of moving people and things all over the globe. Even though the industry today benefits from an incredible array of innovations and an ever increasing streamlining of its technologies, international shipping is still a complex undertaking.
If you are shipping commercial goods or your personal belongings to Chile, or to any other South American port, you need to contract with an experienced and reliable international shipping logistics company. You may be asking yourself what the benefits of such a company are. Here are just a few of the things that Limco’s team of logistics representatives can help you accomplish
Coordinate Your Entire Distribution Chain
If you are shipping your products or commercial goods to Chile, you will need a lot more than just putting it on a sea freighter headed for a Chilean port. Chances are that your products will be headed to Santiago, or to other cities in the interior of the country. This means that you will need an entire chain of distribution from port into the country. Limco representatives can arrange this chain for you, through air freight, truck, car or light rail. In all likelihood, the delivery plan will incorporate all three to get your shipment to its destination on time.
Help You Clear Regulatory And Bureaucratic Hurdles
One of the most difficult aspects of international shipping is the regulatory hurdles presented by the laws and rules of more than 190 different nations. This is enough to make even the heartiest of souls tread cautiously when attempting to ship anything overseas. A Limco logistics representative will help you clear any regulatory obstacle to get your shipment through Chilean customs without a problem. We will be able to consult with you on the nature of your entire shipment, and ensure that everything within will clear customs, and that all applicable taxes, fees and duties are paid for ahead of time.
Prepare Your Cargo For Shipment
Also, Limco will arrange through our network of partners to have your shipment prepared prior to loading onto a sea freighter. We will determine what the best strategy for packing your shipment is, whether it needs to be placed on pallets, crated up or simply put into a shipping container.
