F2F Ocean Shipping
By shipping directly from the supplier to the end user you can avoid U.S. Customs and Border Protection, significantly decrease transportation time, and make end users happier with goods that arrive sooner.
Many of our customers have expressed the desire for a simplified version of a supply chain that allows them to cut out the “middle man” and avoid shipping cargo to the United States if they don’t have to do so. In these cases they need a service that we have dubbed foreign to foreign (F2F) shipping. Typically, goods go directly from the supplier to a customer in another country, thus bypassing any warehouses. You might be thinking, "If foreign to foreign shipping is so great, why aren't more people doing it?" The truth is that doing so is a very complex process that requires protecting the shipper's information so that the supplier and end user aren't exposed to each other. Guarding this process requires a blind bill of lading, also known as a "switch" bill of lading, and there are a number of specific requirements and specifications involved.
