Everyone knows the story of America’s independence from Britain in the 18th century. A series of taxes and oppressive laws led colonists to revolt a number of times, including the events at the Boston Tea Party (previously discussed here).
However, not everyone knows the implications of America’s independence on international shipping services.
After the revolutionary war, one of America’s rights was to import and export whatever they chose, outside of the mercantile boundaries placed on the 13 colonies by Great Britain at the time.
- international shipping services from any port in the United States, including but not limited to those in New York, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Texas, and California!
- Inland trucking and transportation services, just in case you need to get your cargo from another state and bring it to a port city.
- roll-on/roll-off services to board your cargo onto a vessel before shipping it abroad.
