A move where origin or destination is a foreign country or Hawaii, Guam, or Puerto Rico. This includes Overseas to CONUS, CONUS to Overseas, or Overseas to Overseas. In all cases, we contract a local moving company to pack and inventory your property, containerize it, and warehouse for a short period of time while we arrange transportation to a port. Once ready, we hire a trucking company to move your property to a consolidation agent near the Port of Embarkation. That port agent will handle a variety of port-related services depending upon what "Code" of shipment you have, as described in the sections below. The "Code" of shipment also determines how the shipment is to be transported overseas. Once overseas, we contract with port agents, trucking companies, and local moving agents to do everything described above on the origin country side, only in reverse, up through delivery to your home.
