  • Make sure that the carrier can handle the type of goods you need to ship – containers, breakbulk, hazard goods, over-sized pieces, heavy pieces, bulk - as this might require specialized equipment and knowledge.
  • Ensure that the carrier has large network of international ports at which goods can be delivered and established local offices at delivery port.
  • Freight rates are important, so be sure to shop available carriers, as the pricing can very substantially between carriers.  Be leery of a carrier that offers rates significantly below the norm for that trade lane.
