What does this mean for you? It means two things. First, you need to work with a logistics firm that has a lot of experience with letters of credit so that you don’t run into any banking snafus that could have been easily avoided. Your logistics company should be very detail oriented and have a lot of experience in making sure the paperwork is exactly right. But you also need the personal touch. Since you can’t rely on the bank to ensure that what is on the boat is really what is loaded and making it from port to port, you can rely on K International’s experience to ensure you get a single point person assigned to your shipment from start to finish.
