by Walker World Trade – International Trade Management Since 1936
Walker International offers clients door-to-door global ocean and airfreight services, including management of all United States Customs and Border Protection fees and document filings. In addition, Walker offers tariff classification, Customs bond assistance, marine insurance and landed costs calculations for the products imported. The landed cost is that cost upon which clients base their selling prices or ‘cost of goods’.
Walker International’s freight quotes are clearly written, straightforward, itemized and transparent. No hidden costs. No surprise ‘after-the-fact’ costs. Our North American staff maintains regular communication with our import or export clients regarding booking, ISF filing, tariff classification, vessel departure, and USA port arrival and destination arrival status. GPS tracking affords our clients regular and accurate tracking information. If VACIS or MET exams are performed on import cargo, clients are immediately informed and our North American staff provides daily status reports and makes every effort to expedite release and shipment to the clients destination. Logistical troubleshooting is an important part of the service Walker International provides its freight clients.
Walker’s clients are also kept informed about ocean and air cargo markets. Information regarding pending or possible increases or decreases are sent to clients so they can adjust or plan their cost analyses accordingly.
Information regarding tariff classification, changing duty rates, anti-dumping duty legislation and other factors that might influence imports is regularly shared with Walker’s global client base.
Offshore regional managers are fluent in English and provide our clients with assistance for regional distribution, bonded warehousing, consolidation, certificate of origin compliance, country of origin Customs, replenishment and logistical transportation to satisfy the supply chain.
Clients’ rates are based on contracts with eighteen carriers for over 200,000 TEUs per year and more than 100,000,000 lbs. of air cargo per year. All clients benefit from contracts based on large volumes.
All RFQ’s submitted to Walker are managed by our American staff to insure clear, understandable, straightforward communication, proper Customs filing, tracking, troubleshooting and timely local delivery.
