Ocean Shipping Costs
Rates for ocean shipping vary depending on the cubic space that your cargo occupies in the shipping container. There are also different rates for different countries and destination cities. Please contact us for more specific information relating to your shipment.
When shipping ocean cargo or ocean freight, our standard box rate covers warehouse receiving, tallying and loading your cargo. It also covers documentation costs and ocean transportation charges.
Local destination charges apply upon warehouse release. These vary by location and are collected from the consignee at the delivery port. Customs clearance and any applicable duties and taxes are the obligation of the receiving consignee. Some countries may allow you to clear customs yourself and do not charge duty costs for personal effects, though this depends on the location. We offer customs entry services at additional cost should you choose.
