What is International Shipping?

Learning how to solve the different challenges for international shipping can save you time and money. You can count on our experience in international shipping to find the solution that best fits your needs.
How Long Does International Shipping Take?
Several factors impact the duration of international shipping. Shipment duration depends on cargo size, shipping mode, destination, and freight forwarding company. The trade-off in international shipping is between time and cost. Air shipping, for instance, reduces the shipping duration but increases transportation costs. However, most international shipments take two days to four weeks to reach their destination. Consult with Navis Pack & Ship to determine the shipping time frame to meet your deadlines.
Experienced at International Shipping
Whether you need to ship a single item by air or a full or partial container load via ocean, an Ocean Transport Intermediary ("OTI") helps you navigate the maze of paperwork and complex customs regulations to correctly export your shipment, while providing competitive international rates.
Many Navis Pack & Ship locations maintain an agent relationship with our franchising company, Annex Brands, Inc. which employs an Ocean Transportation Intermediary (OTI) and carries the proper license from the Federal Maritime Commission ("FMC").
Annex Brands Inc. is licensed by the Federal Maritime Commission and all OTI services provided by Navis Pack and Ship are solely carried out as agents for Annex Brands, not as OTI principals. To the extent that an ocean house bill of lading is issued, it will be issued by Annex Brands Inc., and not any other related entity, pursuant to Federal Maritime Commission regulations.
In complete compliance with FMC regulations, the International Ocean Export Department at Annex Brands will issue and provide a NVOCC House Ocean Bill of Lading per your shipping instructions. Annex Brands will also provide the ocean carrier or co-loader’s bill of lading copy for your shipment.
Preparing your shipment for export also requires important considerations. For example, certain kinds of wood used in the construction of a shipping container must comply with ISPM-15 certified regulations. Based on decades of preparing international shipments, the experts at Navis Pack & Ship know how to correctly pack and protect your fragile, large, awkward, and valuable goods against potentially harsh overseas shipping environments.
