$250 - Initial Retainer for Service by Sefco

After you let us know about the proposed Export-Import Shipment , including:   complete details - (origin/destination, description, when ready, contact info, etc), we will respond with an acknowledgement and indication of what is achievable, where service is available, etc.

After our initial consultation and general feedback/advice, where further servicing is needed (Ex-Im Support Services) a retainer is required to take things a step further. We will open an active file for your project, as a retained account.

Retained Accounts can receive customized research/ex-im support services. A retainer allows us to continue further (beyond initial indications). This includes in-depth research, logistical analysis, investigation of sailings/routes/transit times, service options, confirmation/calculation of applicable transport rates/related costs, for the proposed cargo being shipped (including future estimations, post 30 days).

This allows for a well informed carrier selection, optimal routing and smooth operational execution.

    Advance planning is critical to international logistics.

Upon receipt of your Sefco Export service retainer,
we will dedicate resources, time & effort to work on your behalf.

    This $250 can come off the cost of shipping
    with Sefco within one year of payment.
