CentEx Cargo is ‘The Next Level of International Shipping 🚢 ‘ It’s common knowledge that social media is now the long tail of marketing. In that spirit, we want to tell our repeat customers, B2B clients, and this new niche market that CentEx Cargo has a business page on Instagram. This platform attracts a young demographic, mainly millennials and some new people across the board. Our LCL Export Team has had the opportunity on many occasions to rub shoulders with some Instagram Influencers, an inspiration to a couple of our posts. This is an opportunity to tell a new audience or some prospects and potential customers about our goods and services, and share shipping facts – e.g., the international shipping industry is responsible for the carriage of around 90% of world trade. Lastly, our team enjoys sharing some fun and zany stories.
A retail shipper and/or shipping clerk needs to know the commodity of each shipment. Commodities vary from household goods, generators, furniture, refrigerators, microwave ovens, other home appliances, and electronics such as televisions, radios, computers, and cell phones & accessories. Contraband of any kind – e.g., firearms & ammunition, liquors, illegal drugs, and tobacco – are prohibited by law.
Shipping barrels of personal effects from anywhere in the US to the Caribbean can be a labor of love. Consequently, we all have a responsibility to keep everything above board. The commodity of choice when shipping to the Caribbean Islands is for the most part household goods. Household goods range from non-perishable food items, clothes, shoes, to home decor products. Lots of retail shipping companies with their freightforwarders, freight brokers, and customs brokers, offer customers the right logistics infrastructure that makes it possible for them to stay in touch with loved ones in their country of origin by shipping an array of items as personal cargo. Americans, on the other hand, use that same structure to build and maintain relationships with friends, non-profit organizations, business associates, and colleagues in the Caribbean. Most individual customers opted out of doing an Export Declaration (Export Dec) of their shipment because it means an additional charge to the costs of international shipping. An HS Code is mandatory in many instances for 2 reasons: 1) It tells the shipper and customs, these are items with no export restrictions; 2) It’s another way to describe the contents of each barrel without an Export Dec and hence facilitate the inspection of any shipment by customs agents.
It is crucial at this juncture to address the elephant in the room – i.e., human trafficking. Having human cargo on board of any vessels is a serious and severe violation of international laws. Human trafficking is unequivocally a crime against humanity. Therefore, all governments on this planet should do their parts in prosecuting human traffickers to the full extent of the law.

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 the strong foundation of a platform for under-represented people and those too timid to go mainstream with an idea for a business. Such a platform would allow them to bounce off their business ideas with each other and others. That in and of itself is a gift – a golden opportunity. The rest is up to YOU. The name Centuria for this type of group, 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 ‘endemic corruption’ in some Caribbean customs to allocating adequate resources to tackle a specific venture in this huge US domestic market. For example, ‘freight broker training’ and actively soliciting the services of good freightforwarders came from one of my colleagues making an attempt to get his foot in the door of this industry as I deal with the peaks and valleys of ‘international shipping service’ from the US eastern seaboard to the Caribbean. This blog is not business 2.0 and consequently doesn’t have a complex organizational structure. What we have is ‘good old American ingenuity’ and a sharp business sense. This awareness also translates into the power of unlimited imagination, a collective positive attitude and subsequent synergy that allows all of us (i.e., active participants) make more money, give us access to a fountain of relevant knowledge, and opportunities to re-invent ourselves at any age. ‘Yes, your most valuable asset is YOU.’
