January 2016 updates that affect the terms of our service for container loading of vehicles + vendor charges that ‘could’ affect future handling charges of container loaded vehicles. We have studied the cargo that we are requested to load with your vehicles and have found that we need to clarify what is included in the service we offer. As you know we offer to load containers with 1,2, 3 or 4 vehicles.  We include the loading of parts in the container to help you reduce shipping costs.  It is your container and you are paying for the space inside.  However, when the nature of the cargo, the volume of items and the number of deliveries are greater than the service is geared for we have to charge for the additional time and effort to handle your vehicles and cargo.

During my trips to the Caribbean I always find myself explaining how we charge for freight service, and how it compares to the competition.

Unfortunately there is no standardized quoting system that shows who is higher in price and who is lower.  What makes it even more confusing is that you often do not even get the same service from the different consolidators and forwarders.
One consolidator can give you a rate of $3.00 per cubic foot and cost you more than the one charging $4.50 per cubic foot because the $3.00 is only the ocean freight, and there are 5 or 6 other charges that will be added before a total is reached to move your merchandise from point A to point B.  And, of course, there are the charges of the receiving agent that can also vary widely.



Bon Trade Intl. Corp. was founded in 1984 to be a service company in support of the export trade to the Caribbean from South Florida, The Gateway to the Caribbean and South America.
