You have a commodity, and need to move it from Country A to Country B. In some cases, shipping can be as easy as calling UPS or FedEx to pick up the parcel. In the case of defense articles, the movement of controlled items between countries, whether a firearm, ammunition, or a collection of inoperable parts is not always easy. When confronted with laws and regulations of multiple countries and jurisdictions, the situation can quickly become a regulatory nightmare.

Hurricane Butterfly has great relationships with domestic US trucking companies, international (air and ocean) shipping companies, freight forwarders, customs brokers, and other parties necessary to the movement of goods in international trade.

What happens when an ocean shipment from Eastern Europe destined for the United States, makes an unexpected stop in the European Union? In most cases, there is no ill effect. In the case of firearms and other restricted articles, a seemingly innocuous port of call may result in seizure, confiscation, destruction of the commodities, and large financial losses. Hurricane Butterfly has experience to assist with the transport of restricted and controlled items in worldwide trade. Let Hurricane Butterfly work out the details of your international transportation needs.
