From origin to destination - VTLs impeccable Custom Clearance Service in Chennai will help clear shipments across border controls and customs regulations such as procedures, practices and formalities.

CFS STORAGE

Container Freight Station refers to warehouse storage where cargo that belongs to various clients is consolidated or deconsolidated before being transported. All our stations are located close to harbors and prominent hubs, with massive storage units, making it easier for our clients to import and export goods.

CONSOLIDATION WORK

It is the process of combining multiple goods from LCL/FCL consignments into one full container of goods consolidated for one client. It significantly reduces time and cost and we help in optimizing the logistics of our clients through this process.

LAST MILE DELIVERY

Transit of goods from warehouse to clients’ doorstep is considered as the last mile delivery service. With emerging businesses and racing technologies, clients expect accurate and fast delivery items. We are proficient in providing such services across worldwide partners on-time.

Yes, we do take returns, but they must have been shipped via us at the time of delivery. We accept returns only if it is a purchase made over a website. We do not process returns which are not approved for returns by the contract partner. Packages which need to be returned must be packed properly for the return transit, along with an attached shipping address and receiver details.
