      Please Note

      All titled cargo (cars, trucks, other) requires export validation by US Customs.


      This requires presentation of originals to Customs at the port of loading.

      After Customs has received and approved the originals, titles and supporting documents are generally returned by the SS Line's port agent to SEFCO's main adminstrative office.

      Unless otherwise instructed, any original title/docs sent to Sefco after pier delivery/from the SS Line, will be returned via USPS Regular Mail to the USA Mailing address of the shipper/paying customer. If you need titles returned to a different address please confirm where and how you would want any originals returned.

      For details on titled cargo requirements please refer to our web site, at: US Customs title validation

      Upon request and where needed, Sefco uses FedEx for express courier of original documents.
      Please provide our office with your FedEx account number for billing purposes. SEFCO can send documents overseas via FedEx provided we are given a FedEx account number for billing and the exact name, street address (not only a PO Box) and phone number for the receiving party.
