I am in the processing of purchasing large quantities of goods including perfumes, gifts baskets, clothes, health and beauty products, dry grocery (about 1 x 40 ft. container) from a number of Closeout and Wholesalers located in Florida and other parts of America. Some of the goods are on pallets and others in small to large boxes. Some will be delivered to a designated address and others will have to be picked up. The goods will be shipped to a port West Africa.

I am looking for a shipping company that can handle the logistics and shipment including, coordination, pick up, packaging, freight and insurance.

Please let me know if you know of a credible company that can assist.

Thank you.

The supplier themselves may well be able to do all that for you if they ship internationally?

Hello Izzy,

I agree with Marc. Have you checked with your supplier if they can do that for you?

Well, to help you in the future with searching for suppliers who ship internationally, you may want to create filters on our Wholesale Directory when doing your searches.

Once you are on the Wholesale Directory search page, just enter the product/brand you wish to find suppliers for, then click on 'more options' and select "Yes, required" for International Shipping and the search results will refresh showing suppliers that ship internationally. Note there is no need to run the search all over again.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Hello Tenzin,

You always have to remember that shipping costs will depend on the size and weigh of the item, as well.

You may want to look into these blogs to help you. I hope you find these helpful:

Hi Tenzin,

You really need to speak to your supplier/s about their shipping rates, they are the ones that will set that as they are the ones sending the packages.
