Need expert in freight forwarding (Air and Sea). Need advice on most reliable and lowest cost
We are a Sports Equipment/Apparel manufacturer. We need to consult someone who is very experienced in the area of freight forwarding. We ship a lot from China to US and other global countries. We have been using Air Freight so far, but will be using sea freight in the future.
Here are areas that we need advice on:
- We need to understand cost structure of freight payments (many times, we have gotten hit with items that we did not know we had to pay)
- We need to understand how to find reliable freight forwarders.
- Need to know how to find the lowest prices on shipping - both sea and air, and when we should choose between the 2
- Need advice on customs so that we don't get slammed with duties that we did not know
- Need to know what we don't know.
