Clock  1 minute to read

Logistics is a fundamental part of international shipping; efficient management of logistics can make the whole process much easier and smoother for all parties involved. 

With that in mind, our sister company in the UK, Hemisphere Freight Services Ltd, put together this quick-fire guide to shipping internationally, including:

  • What you should look for in logistics providers
  • What Incoterms are and why you need to know them
  • What you need to know about customs procedures
  • How to pack appropriately
  • What Bills of Lading are and why you need them
  • The insurance you need for international shipping

Hopefully these slides will give you a better understanding of what international shipping involves and how to ship safely with a suitable logistics provider.
