“Leaders win through logistics. Vision, sure. Strategy, yes. But when you go to war, you need to have both toilet paper and bullets at the right place at the right time. In other words, you must win through superior logistics.” – Tom Peters, Rule #3

Some Helpful Information:

1) Freight movement involves planning and coordination with many parties and technology systems. Plan early as mistakes and changes attract penalties.

2) If your shipment contain any single item valued above $2,500 or a self-propelled vehicle, an AES filing is required at least 72-hours prior to departure. Depending on the state, CBP and Port Authorities have varying procedures for submitting original titles for verification and release for shipment orders. We encourage you to plan with these and other factors in mind.

3) Depending on the Harmonized Tariff System (HTS) code(s) applicable to your shipment, documentation beyond the normal shipping instructions, commercial invoice, and packing list may be needed. Consult ALW or any competent Freight Forwarding company to discuss the documentation required for your shipment.
