Rate Quote and Transit Time

Shipping services vary from shipment to shipment because each one has its own unique needs and requirements. To get a rate quote, start by identifying the service(s) you need based on the transit times and options you would like. 

We recommend gathering as much information as possible prior to shipping. Knowing more up front eliminates the potential for unwanted costs or delays and allows you to maintain greater control.
