Our freight brokers assist clients in making important decisions concerning best shipping practices. Here are several 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 sending a full container load (FCL) is preferable. However, if you have less than a container load (LCL), a freight forwarding service allows you to consolidate shipments by combining orders from two or smaller shippers for an FCL.
Shipping an FCL is much more cost-effective and allows 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. Using current technology, we also keep you informed of your shipment status.
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.
Your shipment must be palletized or packed carefully to comply with international customs regulations and make it safely to its final destination. This may not be much of an issue for most goods, but special considerations may need to be made ahead of time for odd-sized or heavy goods and hazardous materials.
At Asiana USA, we can find you the best freight quote possible, ensuring you get the lowest prices for the service provided. We have developed relationships with freight forwarders and carriers worldwide 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, and provide you with the support you 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 must deal with import and export documentation. Asiana USA also offers customs brokerage services, handling duties, 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.
When shipping via ocean, ground, or air freight, you must ensure your shipment follows specific 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 shipping timelines, climate control needs, stackability, and transporting sensitive items.
Customs, Classifications, and Shipping
Different goods are subject to varying shipping and duty fees for customs. This is because each type of good falls under another classification. Sometimes, an international freight forwarder can save you thousands in yearly shipping and customs fees by reclassifying your goods into a more accurate category. We can help you classify your commodity type to save costs and ensure it is packaged for shipment according to regulations.
In addition, if the shipping time is less urgent, we can often find more cost-effective routes for your cargo.
Tracking Your Shipment to its Final Destination
At Asiana USA, we offer door-to-door transportation services. This 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 if 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.
