CROSS TRADE LOGISTICS
Cross trade shipping is cargo that is transported by either road, rail, air or sea from one country to another but not through the local business base. For example, Wallis Shipping will send cargo from China to Europe without the goods routing via our client based in the UK.

A cross trade shipment is cargo that is shipped by either road, air or sea from one country to another country but not through the home business base. For example, Wallis Shipping will send cargo from China to Europe without the goods routing via our client in the UK.
On rare occasions shipping lines and airlines may have to leave cargo off the intended sailing vessel or flight. This can be due to a number of issues including needing to make the correct mix of cargo weights on a vessel, insufficient space on the ships deck for certain cargoes or incompatible hazardous cargoes.
Cargo insurance is not an obligation but it is recommended you protect your goods against loss or damage. We would recommend this more so with a cross trade shipment as you may not necessarily be viewing your goods from loading to arrival. Cargo insurance will cover your goods in transit and in storage. Providing we are arranging the freight booking we can offer cargo insurance. Call us a for a quote today.
We can coordinate everything very easily from anywhere in the world. We carefully select our business partners around the world to assist with handling your shipments and we use our own documentation software Exportease to ensure a seamless communication chain to expedite shipments efficiently.
No this isn’t necessarily true. By letting us know what your requirements are, we will research your potential routing options and the documentation detail that will be needed.
