Bruning International Corporation would like to take the time to inform all of our business partners of our current operations. This virus period is causing a significant strain on commerce throughout the world. In response to that, we want to share with all of our connected businesses, vendors, and clients, that we are operating at normal business hours throughout this crisis. It is vital that freight forwarders continue to help solve logistic problems surrounding international shipping. For the foreseeable future, we will be in our office working from 8 am until 5 pm answering calls, working on shipping forms, and helping package and crate goods.
In the future, if we do need to shift to a work from home schedule, our staff will continue to offer the full list of our services to our clients. If this comes to pass, we will notify you in a similar fashion with another announcement.
Shipping during the coronavirus outbreak has become an extremely complex process. Gratefully, new international travel regulations do not apply to any shipped cargo. This is because the CDC has advised world governments that it is unlikely that the COVID19 virus can survive on surfaces for the entire duration of an international shipment. That said, shipping centers are taking extra precautions when handling internationally shipped goods. Shipping lanes have also become greatly congested due to the virus. If you have an international freight you need help with, please contact us online.
If you have any domestic shipments that need logistical support, our staff is always available. Regardless of the size of your shipment, large or small, we are ready to help. We can help with expedited services as well as crating, inland transportation, and white-glove services. If you are interested in using any of our services, give us a call at 1.800.616.3349.
If you have any questions about any of freight forwarding services we would be happy to answer them. We have a variety of resources available on our blog that go over the freight forwarding process and more. We also have a few specialty services like heavy lift services for oversized cargo. Send us a message through our contact form if you would like specific answers regarding one of your questions.
