International shipping can become confusing, time-consuming, and costly if you don't know the ins and outs. There are a few basic questions to ask when arranging an international shipment.
Will the country you are shipping to accept the item you are attempting to ship?
Every country has a list of items that they will not accept. Use the UPS Country Regulations tool if you are unsure about the items you're shipping.
Can the company you choose send both small amounts of goods as well as large shipping containers?
If you choose a company that offers the full range of services, they should look for the least expensive way to ship all of your items.
Does the shipping company have experience shipping to Africa, as well as South America?
With different cultures and shipping requirements, it is worth looking for and experienced company. France, for example, has different restrictions from Burkina Faso.
Is the company willing to spend the time to price each of your shipments individually, so that they can analyze the best alternative for each shipment?
Fuel surcharges are constantly changing, and certain days of the week often offer less expensive shipping charges than other days.
