About Container Shipping to Colombia
Container Shipping to Colombia is a particularly delicate enterprise - the country’s history of internal political struggles and illegal arms/drugs smuggling has local Port Authorities working overtime to eradicate unsavory activities. As such, both American and local Colombia Port Authorities have a heightened and very thorough customs inspection process that must be cleared in order for a successful shipment. That is why Logisticargo USA will work with you to ensure your shipping container will pass customs inspection with flying colors.
The journey overseas can be a complicated one: container ships, depending on demand, often stop at multiple ports on their voyage and shipment time includes those middle ports and navigation time. Aboard every shipping vessel, the captain carries a log of every Colombia-bound container on the ship. The Colombian authorities are notified of the ship’s impending arrival a few days in advance in preparation for receiving goods.
After clearing customs, the container can remain sealed and shipped directly or unloaded and delivered. Delivery times may vary according to distance from the port and availability of trucks. This detailed process ensures the safe and secure shipment of goods over thousands of miles of ocean.
