- Taking an inventory of your items.
- Booking the vessel to destination.
- Arranging for pickup and delivery of the sea container to your home.
- Loading the container and sealing it with a lock and numbered metal seal.
- Processing all documentation (Bill of Lading, Export Declaration, and other documents).
- Delivering the full container to port.
