At the end of October we made a trip to Mexico to strengthen relations with our agents. We also visited Mexican clients and importers to whom we offer our agent services in Spain. Services that appreciate when they have shipments to or from our country, since we take charge of import operations. We manage the arrival of the goods, customs clearance and delivery at the final destination. When we dispatch the export, we coordinate the loading of the merchandise with the exporter/shipper and we take care of the export customs clearance, as well as the shipping formalities either by sea or air.

When we think of our shipments that go to Greece we imagen the country of the sea, or seas, since there are so many that bathe its coastline. When you think of our shipments to Greece, we come up with the image of the country of the sea, or seas, as many seas bathe its coastline. Its shores (yes plural) are found in the Mediterranean, but in turn the Ionian, the Aegean, the Cretan, the Libyan, and even the Adriatic seas. We call Malta the most Mediterranean country with all the seas and Italy as the land of beauty. But, let’s talk about the Hellenic Republic, its official name. A small nation with a lot to offer.
The concept of a carbon footprint is a complex calculation that sees what greenhouse gases (GHG) our actions emit, which allows us to study ways to make sustainable transports with lower environmental impact. The concept is based on different international regulations such as PAS 2050:2011 or ISO/TS 14067:2013, but in simple terms: the more gases emitted for a product to get from point A to point B, the greater its carbon footprint.
Nowadays immediacy is the word to describe everything. Information is power and it’s fast in the digital era. This is why tracking has become essential. Transport companies keep monitoring all shipments. But sometimes people think we forgot about their service. They wonder why there’s a big gap between some tracking updates. Today we explain how it works and why that happens.
At LA LUNA shipping® we like to offer shipping services for anything you need. But sometimes we can’t offer certain shipments because of what has to be moved, like the furniture. For example, there are many banned items for shipping (link in Spanish) and others that require very special conditions, and even sometimes we can’t reach certain countries. We always look for a solution, but there’s a certain kind of shipments that we don’t do because of the following reasons…
It might seem that transporting items is easy because you pick up at point A, and transport it until it gets delivered at point B. However, the transport and logistics with guarantees and with proper management are like so many other things in life: you only miss them when they are not there.
Today, as consumers we can choose to have to all the guarantees, but the market also puts at our disposal alternatives, that end up being a threat to our rights as consumers. Let’s see what risks a shipment is in the wrong hands. Read More
