International shipping is the transport of goods across national borders. It plays a pivotal role in connecting global economies and allowing businesses across the planet to develop sales, brands and relationships. Without shipping, many of the world's leading and most advanced economies would crumble. In the United Kingdom alone, over 90% of all consumables arrive on a container ship from overseas origins. Even a product manufactured in the UK will be composed of untold components, the majority of which have been shipped in from overseas.  

That said, worldwide shipping can be complex, costly and confusing, especially for those outside of the European Union. The movement of freight across borders is subject to a myriad of rules and regulations, with each shipping route or container requiring different paperwork and customs knowledge. The United States, for example, has very strict rules regarding what it will and will not allow into the country, while a particular product that sells major volumes in Austria might be forbidden entry to Australia. It's no wonder that the shipping process can feel daunting and worrying for many businesses.
