Most of the time U.S. merchants, as well as U.S. eBay and Amazon sellers, support shipping goods to U.S. and Canada buyers. They may offer a domestic delivery service on shipping goods within the USA. They may ship goods within the USA for a shipping and handling fee or even ship it for free.

However, most of the time they are not shipping cargo from the USA to other countries. Typically U.S. eBay, Amazon sellers, and other U.S. vendors will avoid being involved in any procedures related to shipping freight from the USA.

Having certain instructions, they can properly prepare shipping cargo from the USA to the international shipment. They will pack it in shipping boxes, crates or pallets, label by providing to them shipping labels and either deliver cargo to a freight terminal within the United States or submit to a pickup driver for further shipping out of USA.

INSURE THAT YOU HAVE PLACED YOUR OCEAN FREIGHT CARRIER'S BOOKING NUMBER AS THE KEY REFERENCE NUMBER IN ALL YOUR DELIVERY ORDERS. DO NOT CONFUSE IT WITH AMID LOGISTICS's INTERNAL CUSTOMER REF#! Your shipping freight from the USA will be recognized by freight terminal by the BOOKING NO. Then cargo will be accepted by the shipping terminal to the international shipping from the USA to the destination overseas. See where you can find the ocean freight carrier's BOOKING NO in tha sample of our Dock Receipt below:

Ocean freight booking is the KEY reference





In respect of shipping freight from the USA with AMID Logistics, partial shipments are the number of smaller cargo deliveries that need to be combined into one single international LCL sea freight shipment for shipping from the USA overseas. An example can be a number of smaller U.S. eBay or Amazon orders delivered to a particular ocean freight carriers terminal (CFS - Container Freight Station) in the USA, to be consolidated in one single international LCL sea freight shipment.

Typically each LCL shipment booked with us (and shipment's booking and reference numbers) is related to only one single cargo delivery with an intention to ship the cargo from the USA as soon as possible. I.e. if all export documents are in order and there no other particular reasons to hold cargo at CFS, then each cargo delivery to CFS will be matching with the carriers booking number and released to the shipping from the USA automatically without any additional notices.

If you need to combine two or more cargo deliveries into one single shipment/bill of lading under one carrier's booking and AMID's customer reference numbers, then it must be requested in advance and approved by AMID Logistics.

If approved, then partial shipments are subject to AMID Logistics partial shipments fee $35 per every single additional cargo delivery on top of the first delivery. Ocean freight carrier's CFS storage, handling, documentation etc fees may apply as well.

Important: Some international ocean freight carriers do not offer partial shipments service on shipping cargo from the USA. Partial shipments may be subject to international sea freight carrier's fee (if applicable). If a partial shipment is not approved by AMID Logistics, LLC till the booking, then every single cargo delivery to CFS will be processed on regular basis such a single shipment.
