Asiana USA works with a number of global partners, building international relationships that help us provide the best shipping services. We also assist our clients in making important decisions concerning best practices. Here are a number of ways we can help you plan a shipment efficiently.
Freight Consolidation Options
When shipping via boat, train, or truck, most freight forwarders and logistics carriers charge per container, so it is preferable to ship a full container load (FCL). However, if you have less than a container load (LCL), freight forwarders can consolidate shipments by combining orders from two or more smaller shippers for an FCL.
Shipping an FCL is much more cost-effective and allows for smaller shipments to be transported more quickly. At Asiana USA, we work with many customers and shippers to consolidate and organize shipments in real-time, providing prompt and efficient service.
Complete Container Specifications
For those seeking freight transportation for an FCL or LCL ocean international shipping, our team can reliably provide you with the information you need to prepare, pack, transport, and ship your cargo.
It is important that your shipment is palletized or packed carefully, to make sure it safely makes it to its final destination. For most goods, this may not be much of an issue, but for odd-sized or heavy goods, special considerations may need to be made ahead of time.
At Asiana USA, it is important for us to present you with the best freight quote possible. We have developed relationships with freight forwarders and carriers all over the world, and negotiate on your behalf to get the best shipping rates.
By working with a vast network of movers and shippers, we can compare rates in real-time, providing users with options based on the priority of shipping time, cost, or method. Ocean shipping is one of the most cost-effective ways to ship, but it takes the longest.
Booking Shipments with Ocean Freight Carriers
As your ocean freight consolidator, we do the work of booking your shipment for you. While it is possible to book ocean cargo freight services directly, working with a qualified freight forwarder can save you time and money, as well as provide you with the support you may need during the process.
Our business is built on existing relationships and we can often provide speedy service when it comes to booking, modifying, or canceling a shipment. We’ll also keep you updated every step of the way, so you know exactly where your shipment is.
Handling Import and Export Documentation
When shipping goods internationally, you have to deal with import and export documentation. Asiana USA can also be your customs brokerage, handling duty and fees associated with your shipment. In addition, when shipping to foreign countries, customs clearance documentation can be in a foreign language, and our trained professionals accurately handle the paperwork for you.
Depending on when you are shipping via ocean, ground, or air freight, you have to make sure your shipment follows certain packing requirements. Items of certain sizes, weights, and dimensions may need special shipping requirements. Let us assist you in preparing your cargo for your ocean shipment, considering factors such as shipping timelines, refrigeration needs, stackability, and transporting sensitive items.
Customs, Classifications, and Shipping
When it comes to customs, different goods are subject to varying shipping and duty fees. This is because each type of good falls under a different classification. Sometimes, freight forwarders can save you thousands in yearly shipping and customs fees by reclassifying your goods into a more accurate category. In addition, if the shipping time is less urgent, we can often find more cost-effective routes for your cargo to take.
Tracking Your Shipment to Its Final Destination
At Asiana USA, we offer door-to-door services. That means we keep you informed of the status of your package throughout the entire journey so you are aware of transit times and delivery dates.
This also helps us take quick action in the event that something goes wrong. Whether you are shipping via common carrier or private shippers, we keep you up to date for the entire length of your shipment.
