Get your international shipping delivered in just three easy steps!
1 | Create Your Shipment Listing
Overseas shipping requires a lot of planning. Foreign countries have many different rules, regulations and policies concerning the international transportation of goods and products. It's important that you research and discuss the appropriate policies of your destination country with your international transport company to avoid any complications. Think about your date and location needs for pick up and delivery, and be prepared with the dimensions and weight of your shipment. You’ll want to include as much detail as possible about your shipment so the transporters know how to best meet your needs.
2 | Choose the Best International Shipping Company
After your shipment listing is complete, transporters who specialize in international shipments will send you shipping rates for your review. They’ll be competing for your business, so you know you’re getting the best international transport rates. As the quotes come in, talk to the transporters. Ask them questions about their experience with international shipments, and transporting items like yours. Boat, truck and plane are just a few of several options available for your international transport needs. Each option has its own complex regulations and logistics, so it's important to seek out a reputable international transport and shipping company that can make the process as painless and smooth as possible.
Every transporter on uShip has their own carrier profile as well. Make sure you check out their transportation history, safety records, and customer rated feedback. See how many international shipments they have completed through uShip, and the experience their customers had with them. Review their cargo insurance coverage and their licensing to make sure they can meet your needs. If needed, you can purchase additional cargo insurance through uShip. By talking with the transporter and reviewing their profile, you can rest assured you’re choosing the best international shipping company.
3 | International Shipping & Delivery
Once you have chosen your service provider, contact them with any questions, concerns, or additional information you may have about your shipment. It's important to have a discussion with the international transporter of your choice on the different ways that they can keep you informed as to the status of your shipment. Whether that's simple communication, or the use of a GPS or tracking system, inquire as to how you can be best informed. Give your shipper any third party contact information that may help the shipment run smoothly. If you run into any issues communicating with your international shipping company, let us know.
