Shipper Security Status
If you haven't already, we welcome you to become verified as a known shipper. Your ability to ship with us may depend on it. Depending on your type of business, unverified shippers may run into a fee associated with a portion of our security process. Begin the process by establishing a Precise Account Locator (PAL) number.
TSA Security Requirements
We recently enhanced security measures, which, unfortunately, also increased costs. As a result, we have implemented a handling surcharge on shipments to, from and within the United States, which varies depending on the origin.
