Getting an international shipping quote

These days, with the help of the internet, getting international shipping quotes can be easier than ever. In the past, getting overseas shipping rates would entail calling a shipping line and waiting for a sales person to return your call or contacting a freight forwarding company so they can contact the carrier. Either way, the process would sometimes take an extra day or so of waiting. Now there are rates right at our finger tips. Going online and signing in to a website can yield several container freight rates from international shipping lines. This way it is easy to get rates as well as compare rates cutting out the time consuming part of getting your shipment moving. After having the rates, shippers can then look in their range to find out more about their services, etc. This leaves them time to evaluate the services that are most important to the shipper. In the end, this is great progress for the shipping industry.
