Dock receipt and shipping instructions in shipping freight LCL from the USA

Typically we need one business day to schedule an international shipment. However, we recommend to book and pay a deposit in three to seven business days before you intend to ship your goods.

As soon as you booked your international shipping from the USA via a quote obtained in the online freight calculator, and paid a deposit, we begin working on the international shipping.

After the international shipping settled, you will receive our email with shipping instructions.

Depending on the kind of service you requested, the instructions slightly differ. However, regardless kind of service, the shipping instructions will contain:
