container shipping from china/india etc
Need some guidance.
I'm looking to purchase some inventory from abroad. I might be looking into filling a 20ft container.
The supplier said my port is Toronto and it would cost 3300-3600 USD to get there. However, once it gets there it is my reponsibility to get it to my warehouse.
How in the world am I suppose to bring the container myself?
Assuming I can hire a company to bring it to my location - at which point do they just park the 20ft container and when I'm done unloading it, I call them and they pick it up?
If I don't want the 20 ft container to come to my location - can I just arrive at the Toronto port (location of where the container will be), and empty its contents into my truck/vehicles?
Sorry if i'm missing the point but I'm really confused here
