International Trade & Transportation Glossary
Global trade is a complex and challenging business where success depends on specialized knowledge and personal contacts. Scarbrough International, Ltd./United Shipping provides both, in an extraordinarily powerful and effective way.
An alliance of over 90+ freight forwarders and customs brokers with approximately 150 offices from around the world. United Shipping uses state of the art technology to give importers and exporters global reach along with the personal expertise of local, independent brokers--a winning combination no multinational can match.
Working with United Shipping is like having a personal representative in every port you're dealing with. United Shipping Partners aren't just branch offices. They're market leaders in their regions who have earned the trust and respect of their communities through decades of hard, successful work. No multi-national can match United Shipping's potent presence, awesome network of relationships or long history in the many markets its Partners serve.
Technology isn't the only thing that ties United Shipping together. Members meet regularly and communicate constantly. That enables United Shipping Partners to act as direct extensions of each other. And that allows cargo to move rapidly and efficiently, unblocks bottlenecks and resolves problems with on-the-spot effectiveness.
Sophisticated new systems are making United Shipping an even better resource for importers and exporters. United Shipping's new SST (Shipment Status and Tracking) system uses the Internet to give customers the ability to quickly make things happen on the other side of the planet and instant, 24-hour access to information about their shipments.
