We currently provide bilingual labels in: Arabic, Russian, Mandarin, and Spanish, and we work closely with a global translation company to ensure accuracy and adherence to technical specifications.

Container Loading

All pallets are weighed, measured, and identified to ensure proper load balance is achieved when container loading takes place. Inbound containers are checked to verify they are in good condition. Containers that are leaking, damaged, or have strong odors are rejected, as is any non-working reefer equipment. Cargo is loaded in containers to ensure that all pallets are properly blocked and braced for safe shipment. The entire cargo loading process is documented with photographs. Appropriate dunnage materials (air bags, pallets, brackets) are used to secure each load for safe shipment.


Documentation is diligently handled with careful attention to detail. Every country has their own import regulations, and TradeTrans stays up to date to adhere to these exacting requirements. Typical documents issued include: commercial invoices, packing lists, certificates of origin, free-sale certificates, certificates of analysis, as well as all related transport documentation. Our long-standing working relationship with a premier consular service in New York City allows us to secure notarized and/or legalized documents as required in a timely manner. All original documentation is dispatched via international courier service.

Warehouse-to-Warehouse Insurance Coverage

TradeTrans facilitates cargo insurance that protects transported goods from the shipper’s warehouse to the consignee's warehouse. Understanding that no two customer needs are alike, our skilled team plans for any shipping scenario domestically and across the world.
