Let’s say you have family in another country, and you want to ship them some of your belongings with the help of an international shipping company and containerized shipping. Well, what do you do first? 

Most importantly, you should be asking yourself “what should I NOT do when shipping internationally?”


Well, K International Transport is here to help! Here are some things you should not be shipping internationally: 

1. Jewelry and other valuable items, such as family heirlooms, should not be shipped. This is because they have a high chance of being damaged during the trip overseas.

2. Alcohol and perishable items should not be shipped either! Just as you would not bring perishable food, plants, and seeds on a plane, you should not look to ship them. 

3. Firearms, drugs, and tobacco are prohibited as well. That’s understandable!

4. Finally, as of January 2014, lithium batteries, and electronics containing lithium batteries, cannot be shipped either.  
This may be a lot to take in, but don’t fret! With K International Transport’s international shipping services, we will help you get through this sometimes tedious process.
