Why is extra protection important for overseas shipments?
An overseas move requires additional care and protection because of the many diverse methods of handling and modes of transportation it incorporates.
- Truck: The local pickup or delivery vehicle has up-and-down bouncing action, braking and acceleration movement.
- Train: abrupt jostling of the cargo can result throughout the loading and moving of containers at rail or ship terminals.
- Ship: ship movement is like that of a corkscrew, with up-and-down pitching and sideways rolling. In heavy seas, cargo can move 70 feet side to side.
Superior packing and loading are integral to the “art of moving.” Appreciating and understanding this art enables Rocky Mountain Overseas to boast of the fewest damage claims in the international freight forwarding industry year after year. Our crew members are trained in the art of packing, wrapping and loading intermodal containers for international shipment.
