Thorough Inventory Completed

Because many countries have restrictions on the types of items you bring into their country – including currency and electronics – and differ on what they may or may not permit, it’s vital to have a thorough packing inventory completed of what you’re planning to bring during your international relocation. Suddath® provides a packing inventory that lists the contents of your shipment. We supply a line-by-line inventory noting all items in your shipment at destination for customs clearance.

C-TPAT Certified International Moving Services

One of the most important certifications an international mover should have is the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certification. C-TPAT is a voluntary program that is provided by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security with the goal to enhance cargo security and international supply chains while improving the security of U.S. borders.

A key benefit of using a C-TPAT-certified international mover like Suddath is that we demonstrate our commitment to securely moving your goods based on the high standards of U.S. Custom and Border Protection. Moreover, this certification promotes accuracy – we know what’s in each container and proactively address any security issues.
