Shipping Barrels to Jamaica is a practice that has been done by migrants for years. It is common practice among Caribbean migrants to send a barrel with food or clothing items for the family still living on the islands. Usually, the trip to pick up the barrel/s lasts an entire day, with long lines and extensive wait periods.

 Sometimes it might even last longer if the documents are inaccurate or incomplete. Some companies have made shipping barrels to Jamaica their business and have found ways to alleviate some of the usual stresses that come with it.

1. Dennis Shipping

Dennis Shipping delivers from their offices in New York and Florida in the United States to the Caribbean and Central America. They also serve other states including Virginia, Connecticut, Delaware, Boston and Maryland through independent partners.

Their services include:

  • Ocean Freight
  • Door-to-door
  • Pre Clearance
  • Automobile Shipping
  • Container Shipping

If you have the barrel packed at home in New York or Florida, they do pickups from your home. All you would need to do is provide the name, address and contact number of both the sender and the receiver either over the phone or using their online platform. Having the barrel delivered or dropped off at the warehouse is also an option if that is more convenient for you.

To make the process even simpler, Dennis Shipping facilitates persons packing their barrels at the warehouse as well and, if you need help choosing the storage option best suited for the items you are packing, a consultant will assist.

Pre Clearance

With Pre-clearance, you eliminate the hassle for the collector to visit the wharf themselves. For an additional fee, the Dennis Shipping team will handle the paperwork and process to collect the barrel at Jamaica customs. You will need to provide them with an ID and TRN for the person who is collecting and this name must match the name the barrel is sent to.

Dennis Shipping will cover the relevant fees and customs duties until you collect the barrel. After your shipment is cleared, all you’ll have to do is visit the office closest to you, pay the outstanding fees and collect your package.

Door To Door

Deliveries directly to your home provide even more convenience to the receiver they wouldn’t even have to leave their home to collect the package themselves. The shipped item can be taken, in some cases directly from the sender’s door to the receiver’s without either one having to leave the house. 

To utilize this service, a detailed list of all the items needs to be given to the company that way they will be able to check the content of the barrel at the wharf for you.

Dennis Shipping also facilitates the shipping of automobiles, full container loads and returning residents.
