To export a vehicle, shipper must have original certificate of ownership (title) of the vehicle.

Do I need to provide U.S. Customs certain documents prior to exporting a vehicle?

On or before cut-off day, Shipper (or Freight Forwarder) must show the original certificate of ownership (title) of the vehicle and fill out a U.S. Customs Cover Letter for validation by a U.S. Customs officer. In addition, Shipper or Forwarder must also file AES (Automated Export System) electronically.

What type of documents does World Logistics need from the shipper by cut-off date?

Shipper must provide World Logistics a bill of lading instruction and a copy of U.S. Customs Cover Letter duly validated.

How soon can I deliver my cargo (or vehicle) to the loading port?

Normally, you can deliver as early as two (2) weeks prior to vessel departure date.

Does World Logistics allow shipping of Personal Effects or Auto Parts inside the vehicle?

In general, we do not allow Personal Effects or Auto Parts inside the vehicle since it is a liability issue.

Would I be allowed to enter the port facility to deliver my vehicle?

Starting in early 2009, U.S. Customs has implemented a new regulation that individuals who enter the port facility throughout the U.S. must have a government issued Identification Card called TWIC, which stands for Transportation Worker Identification Credential. If you are frequently delivering vehicles to the port, we highly recommend you apply @ www.tsa.gov/twic.
