It is mandatory to declare the commodity of your shipment

A retail shipper or shipping clerk needs to know the commodity of each shipment. Commodities vary from household goods, furniture to a refrigerator, microwave ovens, generators, radios, computers, televisions, cell phones & accessories, and other electronics. Contraband of any kind – e.g., liquors, tobacco, firearms & ammunition, and illegal drugs are prohibited by law

Shipping barrels of personal effects from anywhere in the US to the Caribbean can be a labor of love. The commodity of choice is usually household goods. Household goods range from non-perishable food items, clothes, shoes to small home appliances. Lots of shipping companies and freight forwarders offer customers the right logistics infrastructure that makes it possible for them to stay in touch with their country of origin. Americans and legal residents use that same infrastructure to cultivate relationships with friends, business associates, and peers in the Caribbean. When shipping to the Caribbean, most customers choose not to do an ‘Export Declaration’ of their shipment because it means an additional charge to the costs of international shipping. An HS Code is often required to facilitate the inspection of any shipment by Customs Agents.

It is crucial at this juncture to address the 800 pound gorilla in the room – i.e., human trafficking. Human trafficking is a serious and severe violation of a myriad of international laws. Moreover, it is a crime against humanity. Therefore, human traffickers should be prosecuted and will be prosecuted to the full extent of international laws.

A structure to bounce off money making ideas

One of my long term goals has always been about the ability to conceptualize a sound structure that attracts money making ideas. Whether it was Centuria Group or the CentEx Cargo Blog, the inspiration for their inception was to build a strong foundation for under-represented people and those too timid to go mainstream. This structure would allow them to bounce off their business ideas with others. The name Centuria was chosen by our 2004-team for its meaning and represented to us a business capable of having 100 different units.

It is an ‘on-going’ process. CentEx Cargo blog posts range from a substantive discussion about ‘pervasive corruption’ in some Caribbean customs to allocating adequate resources to tackle the huge US domestic market. For example, ‘freight broker training’ came from one of my colleagues as a way to get his foot in the door and deal with the slow cycle of international shipping service from the US eastern seaboard to the Caribbean. This blog doesn’t have a fancy organizational structure: What we have is ‘good old American ingenuity,’ the power of unlimited imagination, positive energy and synergy that allow any of our active participants to make more money, access to an abundance of valuable assets, and opportunities to re-invent themselves at any age. ‘I strongly believe that your most valuable asset is yourself.’

What does the future hold for CentEx Cargo on Twitter?

Like many other social media platforms, Twitter can be dynamic in terms of attracting a large enough audience to remain relavant and be on the cutting edge. As a blog that caters to courier services and international shipping service from the US to the Caribbean, the team at CentEx Cargo has been using ‘content marketing’ to attract the right followers. We have been approached by several third- party companies not affiliated to Twitter, selling us strategies, they claimed, could exponentially increase our number of followers. But, after many meetings to look into those strategies, the team came to the conclusion that those followers were generic and had no interest in courier services, nor in international shipping service.

I am fully aware that having a conversation about courier services in Atlanta, Georgia and Seattle, Washington for instance, is not sexy. So, to spice things up a bit, I regularly share tweets about current events and mundane things that are getting lots of attention from valued customers, potential customers, and the average American nuclear family. The hashtag (#) feature of this platform enables me to engage in conversations with other businesses and individuals. I also use ‘retweet with a comment’ as a genuine way to be part of the dialogue and gain visibility. As you all know, I am mostly interested in your side on this issue. Your suggestions mean the world to me. So, what’s your Twitter Handle? And, how do you use Twitter to keep a particular topic dear to you, in the forefront of our collective discussion?

Lastly, the CentEx Cargo blog carefully chooses which social media platform deserves our advertising dollars. This decision process is based mainly on ‘getting the most bang for the buck.’ As a business or individual account, how would you describe your experience with Twitter Ads? Well, I think Twitter can make it easier for customers to pay for ‘engagements,’ and ‘impressions.’ Their analytics are good, but their payment methods are too restrictive.

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post. Feel free to write a comment in the ‘comment section.’ I will not post it without your verbal consent.
