We ensure the correct paperwork is completed and filed properly, which includes customs-clearance processes, duties and fees, and cargo insurance.

Our specialty ocean freight shipping services access flat racks, open-top structures, refrigerated and temperature controlled units, and tanks.  Also, MIQ can coordinate roll on – roll off (RO-RO), lift on – lift off (LO-LO) freight and ocean charters.Supervision of Heavy-Lift Freight Forwarding Cargo
