See our website: http://nid-michs.org. Your assistance in this effort will be greatly appreciated. Tax-exempt provisions available.

We need the container because we need a little guarantee that the contents are not tampered with until they reach their final destination which is 8 hours inland from Douala in Cameroon. We also need a breakout of shipping related costs for transport to Cameroon
- Does the Shipping company provide drayage if we buy the container elsewhere and at what cost
