When it comes to our customers’ vehicles, we ensure that we service their shipping needs with high levels of dedication, expertise, and professionalism. We have a thorough knowledge of all the international shipping procedures, which gives us the confidence to be able to ship your vehicle safely to your destination of choice.

While we handle your international shipping requirements from our end, we also recommend that our clients choose their clearing and forwarding agent with care. A competent clearing and forwarding agent is needed to keep your shipping costs low, as they provide a range of transportation modes and other shipping services like their expertise in customs clearance.

An efficient clearing and forwarding agent should be able to provide the following services:

  • A professional clearing agent tailors their services around your shipping and business needs, suited to the type of vehicles that are being shipped.
  • Your clearing agent should be accredited with local customs authorities, border and port agencies, and should be able to pass the relevant documents at customs.
  • The clearing agent should have the facility to store your cargo at their warehouse, and then arrange the forwarding of the cargo as per your instructions.
  • They arrange for customs inspections as required, and process duty and VAT payments as applicable.
  • Since they have access to various modes of transportation, they can help you determine which mode would be the best one for your vehicle depending on its make and size.
  • They can also give you benefits of some good deals as they deal with multiple clients and can consolidate shipments among different businesses.
  • A reputed clearing and forwarding agent will be up-to-date with all the changes in customs laws and regulations, especially for shipping to multiple countries.

We strive to provide our customers with a hassle-free shipping service. So, we help them by identifying professional and competent clearing agents in certain shipping destinations. Contact us today to know more about our trusted services.
