Shipping Charges

How to prevent paying extra money and reduce import costs into Canada!

There are numerous extra charges which surprise most Shippers and Importers once they receive their invoices from Carriers and Forwarders. Some of these charges can be reduced or avoided if the following points are kept in mind:

SMALL, LOW WEIGHT SHIPMENTS:


Couriers are COSTLIER but may be the answer. Their rates may be appear high, but they include most of the aspects for which Airlines and Forwarders charge extra, and which may add up to considerable sums on small shipments!

PARCEL POST SHIPMENTS:


Parcel Post, in our opinion, is not a recommendable shipping method for commercial goods, because the systems used by Canada Customs and the Post Office are slow and may result in duty and tax errors!

LARGE, HIGH WEIGHT SHIPMENTS:


Shopping around with several Carriers, Forwarders and even Couriers will produce freight rates which vary considerably from company to company. Keep in mind that all-inclusive freight rates usually appear higher than the basic Airline or Forwarder's charges, but that their EXTRA CHARGES will add considerably to the overall cost of your shipment!

OCEAN FREIGHT SHIPMENTS:


Again, shopping several Companies will produce considerable savings in freight costs. All-inclusive freight rates are available for full container loads and, occasionally, also for smaller loads (LCL= less than container loads).

FREIGHT FORWARDING ARRANGEMENTS:
