International Shipping Restrictions

International Shipping Restrictions

Although reliable international shipping companies can offer to ship your cargo to almost anywhere in the world. However, there are a few exceptions. 

Because of the numerous international conflicts currently occurring, international shipping services to some countries are restricted. 

Some of these restricted countries are:
  • Iran
  • Cuba 
  • Syria
  • Russia
  • North Korea
  • Sudan
  • Somalia
  • Iraq
  • and many more. 

Some of these countries have trade embargoes set on them by the United States, and the United Nations, while other countries cannot be accessed at all. 

Conflicts like the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, the destabilization of both Sudan and Syria, the tension between the U.S and North Korea, all dictate what international shipping services can and cannot do. 

For international shipping to other countries, K International Transport can help ship almost any cargo overseas through ports in the United States. However, anyone interested in international shipping should also know how the international political climate affects where items can cannot be shipped.
