Because bonded full container load cargo must be validated by Customs, it is imperative that Tropical Shipping receives the cargo and documents prior to the cut-offs listed above.

 

All Hazardous LCL or LCL consolidation cargo MUST be received with documents 48 hours prior to regular LCL cut-offs.

We understand the challenges associated with a short holiday week and appreciate your assistance in having your cargo and documents delivered as early as possible. Tropical Shipping remains committed to providing our customers with the best and most comprehensive services in the industry.

 

If you have any questions regarding our holiday schedule or cutoff times, please contact your local sales representative or the Customer Service Team at 800-638-TROP (8767) or 561-881-3999.

 

Complete contact listings, including telephone and fax numbers and email address information can be found 24/7/365 on our website on the Bookings and Customer Service page – found in the Contact area of our website www.tropical.com
