Trinity Logistics together with its industry associates specialize in providing these services!

Some of the international freight shipping services we offer to corporations, manufacturers and retailers as limited agents of ocean transportation intermediaries (OTIs) and through other industry associations include:

Customs Clearing

We can connect you with a customs broker who will help you with the customs clearance of your imports and exports, whether they’re by land, air, or sea and facilitate the transfer your shipments to other modes of transportation as necessary.

Full knowledge of the range of Incoterms and how they affect your shipments

Not an international shipping expert? That’s okay. We’ll help you understand what the Incoterms (International Commercial terms) rules mean for your business and your international shipments.

Review of commercial invoices for accuracy

The complicated nature of international freight shipping means it’s easy for a mistake on the invoice to cost you a lot of unnecessary money and frustration. We’ll review the paperwork to make sure you’re only paying what you have to.

Regulatory compliance and assistance with product classification

Take advantage of our experience in navigating the regulations governing international freight shipping companies and their cargo. Through our business association relationships, we will help you classify your shipment and ensure all procedures are being properly followed so that the international shipping process goes smoothly for you.

Facilitation of customer training seminars as needed

We can facilitate training seminars to educate you or your customers on the international shipping processes relevant to your business.

Access to US customs-bonded storage

Trinity, as a limited agent of ocean freight forwarders, has access to customs-bonded warehouses which means that you can store your shipment for a period of time before or while it’s being cleared by customs. This gives you much more flexibility if something goes awry with your shipment or you need more time for the shipment to be cleared.

FMC Licensed and C-TPAT Certified & Validated Suppliers

While Trinity is not a FMC-licensed OTI, and does not offer or otherwise provide services constituting “Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier Services” or “Freight Forwarder Services” as those terms are defined in 46 C.F.R. § 515.2(h), (k) or “customs business” as that term is defined in 19 CFR 111.1, Trinity has established limited agency relationships with FMC-licensed OTIs and relationships with third-party customs brokers who are certified with the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism to perform those services for its customers.  You can rest assured that we take our international freight shipping services seriously – our associations back it up. And if your business requires these certifications for any international freight shippers your partnering with us, means that we’re able to work together!
