The Importance of Accurate Documentation

The Importance of Accurate Documentation

DATE: 12/25/09

Whether you’re shipping domestically or internationally, there are always several documents that must be completed before your shipment is loaded up and delivered. Preparing these documents correctly and accurately is essential to ensuring they are delivered properly, in compliance with all rules and regulations, and able to clear customs. Amerijet’s forwarding logistics services include document preparation assistance to guide you through this process. Before beginning document preparation, you should know:
• Type of goods being sent—The type of goods you’re shipping will play a role in determining which documents need to be completed. For example, more documentation will likely be required for shipping hazardous materials than for shipping electronics. Shipping animals may also require extra documentation. Understand the classification of your shipment, and the shipping company can tell you which documents must be completed.
• Value of goods—For individual items valued at over $2500, a Shipper’s Export Declaration (SED) is typically required. This information is provided to the U.S. Census Bureau for government reporting and to ensure export compliance.
• Destination of shipment—Depending upon the shipment’s destination, you may be required to complete extra documentation. The best cargo shipping companies staff knowledgeable international shipping experts who can tell you exactly which documentation needs to be completed and assist you should you need help completing it. Document preparation is a key part of Amerijet’s forwarding logistics services. For more information, please visit www.amerijet.com.
