    Good for them. Import companies have much competition, including Individuals. Hope the smaller companies don’t get priced out of business. They may do the same. We NEED competition.

    i have never been to a country where you pay top dollars to bring in goods and it takes two companies to accomplish the task. What a joke.

    How can you “provide clients and improved all-around shipping experience”? and at the same time,”assure that their freight will continue to arrive in Bermuda exactly as it presently is”?

    Will this hook up get my goods in faster and cheaper? or is just BEST willing to take on all the dirty work?
