If you need to ship an item overseas and you don’t already have an established network to do so, then you’ll want to enlist the help of a freight forwarder to safely get your item to its destination. Freight forwarders have extensive experience with various forms of shipping, including maritime transport and heavy haul trucking. They also have the necessary connections in the United States and abroad to ensure your freight is always in trustworthy, reliable hands.
Take Advantage Of Hassle-Free Overseas Shipping
A key advantage of working with freight forwarders is that they typically handle everything related to documentation, which can easily become a headache for a shipper or dealer who doesn’t have experience with overseas shipping. Examples of necessary documents may include invoices, certificates of origin, bills of lading, and occasionally packing lists, although those typically aren’t necessary for heavy equipment.
From there, freight forwarders can determine the best transport companies to get your truck, tractor, dozer, or any other piece of equipment across the United States, to a port, across the ocean, and then back to dry land on its way to its final destination. And all you need is a FR8Star account!
Expand Your Reach
For equipment dealers, and sellers in general, FR8Star now provides the dual benefit of providing cost-effective domestic shipping as well as competitively priced overseas shipping. Dealers that are already taking advantage of the shipping options provided by FR8Star to expand their reach in the United States can now extend that out to the rest of the world, all with the help of FR8Star and its network for qualified freight forwarders.
