Reliable International Shipping Service 🚢 from Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, and Los Angeles, CA to the Caribbean

In business since 2004, and we have the scars to prove it. We survived the Great Recession of 2008 and political unrest in a couple of Caribbean ports. CentEx Cargo remained efficient and functional during the pandemic. We’ve learned to work remotely, generating quotes and booking numbers while giving continued support to truckers and port employees deemed essential workers. As a result, we were able to expand and solidify the logistics infrastructure that’s available to us, our suppliers, and customers. We’re now part of a stronger ecosystem that has the capability of surviving the next crisis. We’ve been dealing with congestion in the port of Los Angeles in California and the port of New York/New Jersey, which causes severe delays in the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) given to the indivual shipper and consignee. In every instance, management instructed the entire hybrid team and in-person staff to tell the truth to customers. Caribbean Shipping needs a team like ours: a team who knows how to raise the bar and take its responsibilities seriously. A team that’s reliable and delivers to customers even when things appear impossible. A strategic inflection point or competition? Of all the changes in the forces of competition, the most difficult one to deal with, is when one of the forces – e.g., like COVID-19 – becomes so strong that it transforms the very essence of how business is conducted in this industry. This is one of the main reasons why we stopped worrying about the competition. CentEx Cargo/STG Logistics listens to its customers and is proactive and ready to be ‘The Next Level of International Shipping 🚢 ‘

It is mandatory to declare the commodity of your shipment

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.
