    2. we pass through the actual costs of trucking, equipment, insurance, container and export documentation, payable when costs are incurred;
    3. destination costs including clearing, duty and destination trucking are generally less if the importer/recipient are closely involved in the process of requesting rates for services in their country.
    4. when the recipient has a conforming document set to present their local import brokers, customs authorities and trucking companies, along with their understanding of cultural negotiation of rates in the local language or dialect they are likely to achieve a lower cost than we would obtain from the same carriers.  The recipient should also be involved due to the fluctuation of exchange rates for services that are payable in the destination countries currency.
