It is well known that companies use freight forwarders when they need help with transportation matters of products. Transatlantic assists both importers and exporters with international trade by finding the best modes of transportation for the goods to reach their final destination. Transatlantic arranges the shipping of goods between the supplier and the distributor.
Transatlantic offers competitive costs based on the level of services a company needs. We can also lower prices to a specific company by making arrangements with other businesses that need shipments sent by the same transportation service to the same destination. Transatlantic does this by taking the company’s shipments and consolidating them with the shipments from other businesses to create a single load to transport. This method cuts the price of freight charges.
Transatlantic as a freight forwarder generally specializes in one type of service area, market or mode of transportation. This can allow a company to pick and choose how many shipping services the freight forwarder should handle, giving the company more control over how its shipment is handled. By understanding the company’s type of product, Transatlantic knows with whom to book the appropriate routes and the best type of shipping transportation that ensures the company’s shipment reaches its destination in the same condition as when it left the warehouse.
We also have knowledge and expertise regarding importing and exporting products through customs services. Transatlantic has the most current information regarding the customs regulations of other countries and can fill out all the necessary paperwork, pay the required tariffs or handle other taxes. This prevents the company’s shipment from sitting in the loading dock while the company’s shipping manager struggles to file unfamiliar paperwork.
Another of our advantages is that Transatlantic includes trade-related services, according to Business Link. Such services consist of handling all documentation for shipments, such as the bill of lading and bank papers to release payment. Transatlantic also offers insurance services for all shipped products and manages the inventory so the accurate amount of products is transported.
