Personal Freight.. What it is and its Advantages?
Alternative Ways For Supplying Your Products
As the name suggests, personal freight is the shipping of goods purchased for personal use only. It is not for trading, selling, or buying.
When customs assess the goods as a personal shipment, these goods will have a special kind of handling regarding customs duties in the country of arrival.
