Any destination, any shipping need
Whether you want to access air, ocean, road, rail, or intermodal routes, Approved can handle everything. We work with:
- Growing businesses looking to export goods to international marketplaces
- Companies sourcing materials or importing goods from abroad
- Government entities like FEMA and the U.N. who need to move materials from one country to another, be it across a single border, or dozens
As we move your items across the globe, we’ll leverage our deep network of worldwide agents, many of whom we’ve been working with for 20+ years. Together, we have the experience, expertise and connections to get your goods exactly where they’re supposed to be, exactly when they’re supposed to be there.
Options for all budgets and timelines from a global business
If you need to move your items ASAP, we’ve got a solution. If you’re looking for budget-friendly options, we’ve got those, too. We’ll help you balance cost considerations against timetables to find the best shipping solution for your budget. For example, our consolidation capabilities mean that we can offer creative cost-saving solutions many other companies can’t.
And as a member of The DeWitt Companies, we’re part of a family of five different shipping companies with deep experience in shipping complicated cargo to remote destinations.
Avoid the #1 reason for delays
There’s no bigger reason for delays in international freight shipments than customs problems. But you can leave those worries to the pros at Approved.
We’ll work with you to get all the right paperwork in order, such as commercial invoices and packing lists. If your destination country requires localized legal documents, we’ll help you secure them. We can even help you save money by facilitating an ATA carnet so you don’t have to pay for goods you’re importing or exporting temporarily, such as trade show materials and samples.
Real-time reporting, constant communication
Tracking your shipment starts with access to our online dashboard for up-to-the-minute updates—but it doesn’t end there.
You can count on us to reach out with personalized updates every step of the way. If winter storms are poised to impact your delivery date, you’ll hear from us before the storm breaks. Many Pacific lanes can be impacted by hurricanes and typhoons, you’ll know how this will affect your shipments, so you’ll have plenty of time to adjust your schedule. We believe that superior customer service requires ongoing communication, and we’ll be with you until your goods arrive at their final destination.
We’re ready to put together a custom solution for your international freight needs, one that’s tailored to your timeline and budget.
An end-to-end solution
All freight services providers are not created equally. For example, some only offer limited routes and partial solutions that leave you to arrange for your own pickups and deliveries. Their service stops when your freight reaches a border.
At Approved, we’re committed to going the extra mile, which includes the first mile and the final mile. You tell us your point of origin, your final destination, and your freight requirements: we’ll create an end-to-end solution that makes it simple and cost-effective.
