Does your company make purchases on behalf of customers?

No, we do not make purchases on behalf of our customers.

Are shipments insured by your company?

Legally, all carriers must carry a minimum amount of insurance, known as carrier liability. However, carrier liability provides limited coverage. Anything from natural disasters to vehicle accidents or even acts of war can damage your cargo. Therefore, shippers can request cargo insurance to protect their goods from loss, damage, or theft while in transit. Generally, goods are insured while being stored and in transit until they reach the buyer.

How do you treat customs charges?

Customs Duty is a tax imposed on any goods imported and exported.
