LCL Exports From the UK to USA

Discover the ease of shipping LCL shipments to the USA from the UK.

It has never been easier to get your product shipped to the USA with our consolidation services to NYC and Chicago. 

No longer will you be at a loss as to where your shipment is. With our LCL services to the USA, we manage the process seamlessly from start to finish, allowing you to focus on critical elements of your business. 

Value for money when shipping your Less than Container Load to the USA

There are options that mean you don't have to send a container full of air. The best way to achieve this is to utilise a consolidation service that allows you to ship your products safely to the USA, especially when you don't have enough product to fill an entire container. This type of service is also better for the environment when you do choose to consolidate. 

Offering visibility for your LCL Shipments

By managing our very own consolidation services to both NYC and Chicago, you can have peace of mind that your shipments will be handled and controlled by us and not by many providers across the shipment. 

You will also have the added benefit of competitive rates, flexibility, and reliability of service.

The management of your LCL Shipments will be controlled by one of our dedicated account managers. They will ensure that all KPI's are met, and will help deliver customer service excellence. 

The One-Stop-Shop for Your LCL Shipments

When considering what consolidation service is right for your business, it's worth noting that we can handle your USA customs requirements as part of our consolidation services. If you also decide that your goods need to be insured (this is something we certainly recommend), we can take care of this as well. 

Additionally, we can offer you further advantages with our end to end, trucking, and warehousing services. 

All you need to do is use our Control Tower platform. Using our tool, you can see where your LCL Shipment is at any time.

USA Custom Requirements

The United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) enforces trading rules on all shipments imported to the USA. When exporting from the UK, the amount you pay for customs will depend on the value of your goods. 

Additionally, before shipping your product to the USA, you need to ensure you meet all legal requirements. Make sure to know your product's correct Harmonised System (HS) code and investigate any specific regulations. This can help to ensure a seamless customs clearance. 

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) enforces additional rules on the packaging and contents of food, drinks, drugs, medical devices, and cosmetics. These regulations can change depending on the state you're exporting to. This can have the potential to get complicated. 

There is a lot to deal with and plan for, which isn't a process most companies can make on their own. However, by partnering with an experienced shipper like WTA UK and our sister company WTA USA who can handle all of your customs clearances, we can help you overcome all of these challenges.
