INTERNATIONAL FREIGHT FORWARDING SERVICES
The Kearney Companies, Inc offers comprehensive international freight forwarding services to and from any point in the world. We provide efficient handling, on a door-to-door basis, of ocean and airfreight consignments through cost-effective methods that are well supported by our experienced staff.
KCO acts as an extension of your traffic department, granting you the ability to focus on what you know best – your business. In fact, we've gone as far as assigning our own employees to various customer locations to ensure proper communication and facilitation of information flow that is critical in meeting our customers' supply chain demands.
Standard functions of The Kearney Companies Freight Forwarding Service include transportation quotations, booking arrangements, and processing of all documents required for compliance to national and international regulations. KCO also serves as a vital link to our clients' finance departments in terms of expedited processing of bank documents, including letters of credit and consularization of invoices.
KCO is on-line with all of the major ocean and air carriers, allowing us to provide shipment tracking. We can also summarize a client's activity through an array of management reports tailored to the individual customer's needs.
The delivery and receipt of commercial documents is closely monitored as is the preparation and distribution of the Bills of Lading, Forwarders Cargo Receipts, and other documents that are carefully managed throughout the export process. KCO employees are fully trained in the proper handling and documentation of hazardous materials, and they operate their terminals in an atmosphere of responsible care. Our export staff is trained in HAZMAT awareness, USDA and FDA compliance, and trained to review shipments for conformance to applicable regulations. We can provide on-site assistance in terms of occasional training and/or permanent placement at customer locations.
