    India, Pakistan, China to USA

    Did you have to do anything particular since I knew shipping jeans to the USA had certain rules? Didn't exactly remember what though. It's been years ago I go that request.

    LCL Shipments

    They are mostly handled first to port warehouses that handle consolidated shipments indeed.

    Covid Lockdown in China (Shanghai)

    Also, inform your client in advance but they probably know since it's all over the news. But they must shift their demands indeed of look for different routes.

    Shuttle truck

    Here in the Netherlands, we have Sprinters that are L2H2 which stands for height 2 and length 2 and they can load around 5-6 pallets. But these are bounded to a weight restriction though.

    DHL shipment

    In my opinion, DHL is an amateur club that you need to avoid even if it means you'll pay a bit more. Better use FedEx or UPS for the matter. But when declaring 1 piece when they are actually 6 is asking for issues, to be honest. But anyway, you solved the problem.

    Shuttle truck

    Yes, we use Mercedes Sprinters for these matters. They lean towards courier services more than freight forwarding or haulers.

    Instructions in BL - Inside USA

    Hi @Pravin K. To be honest, we never did this here in the Netherlands since we viewed this as the shipper's responsibility to take care of the fact that the consignee is at the destination at the point of delivery. But good point though. Never thought about it.

    What is Letter of Credit?

    Very nice post @Roselex D. and welcome to the team.
