Our next container cut off date for Personal cargo to Sri Lanka is 12/15/2018. In order to accommodate the increase in personal cargo shipments we have scheduled a sailing every 3 weeks.
At this time of year transit times to Sri Lanka are on an average of 30 to 34 days. Please take note of this when planning your next shipment. We urge our customers to use double walled boxes that are certified to hold the weight of the contents. However, we often see poorly packaged shipments with valuable contents being destroyed due to careless packaging. Trico Maritime is responsible for shipping the package in good condition once it reaches our office.
We cannot emphasize how important insurance is when it comes to valuable cargo. That being said, we offer Insurance on most cargo except for antiques and items of sentimental value. All other replaceable items can be insured. Just like all insurance policies we do have a deductible that can be offered. Please call to discuss with us.
