If you plan to ship into Belize you will need a company in Belize to facilitate your shipment through Belize Customs and also for local delivery. I have worked with Jose at Belize Logistics on two separate occasions and have been very pleased with the service.

C/O BELIZE LOGISTICS SERVICES LTD (BLS) 34 ALBERT STREET BELIZE CITY, BELIZE C.A. TEL: 011-501-227-1710 FAX: 011-501-227-3754 MOBILE: BTL 501-600-5861 E-MAIL: JOSE@BELIZETRANSPORTATION.COM

Jose may be able to answer your questions about foreign shippers that he deals with and give you a good recommendation.

"If you plan to ship into Belize you will need a company in Belize to facilitate your shipment through Belize Customs and also for local delivery."

Several friends have recommended Hyde Shipping. I may need goods shipped from the BC port to Belmopan. I have a reference for Joseph Hamilton as a clearing agent. Is he a good agent? Can someone provide an e-mail address for him?

Thanks, Dave! I infer "6 shipments" is an endorsement of Joseph Hamilton for an import agent.

He's been great to deal with.
Occasionally I had to adjust my schedule to match his.
That's the way it goes in Belize, have plan "B" and "C" ready. No problem.

My wife and I want to get to Belmopan asap. We need some information about manifests and shipping preparation. Hyde Shipping and broker, Joseph Hamilton, are away for the weekend, so I look forward to some advise from Dave, Terri, Greg and Miah!

Boxes for our initial shipment to Belize City port are packed in boxes and ready to deliver to Hyde Shipping in the Miami area. On the outside of each package, we have a list of the contents. Almost everything is labeled with the contents, but our "name identifier" is not on the boxes. The general contents are household and persona effects older than a year. We will U-Haul the boxes to Hyde sometime next week.

Questions:
-- Must a shipper name appear on each package?
-- Is it a problem if our goods arrive to BZ customs and to Joseph Hamilton a week or so before we do?
-- Will the broker likely ask for payment in advance to cover customs duty and his brokerage fee?

Thanks y'all for advice you can share! Stay safe from the thunderstorms and heavy rain from Nate.

We put a copy of contents inside each package outside can get wet or ripped off. Did you keep a master sheet of all boxes and contents?
No but cannot be too long as they then start charging storage and things walk away
We knew our broker well. He had our manifest list, told us up front what costs would be for an estimate. When the day arrived we went with him to the port and gave him funds to pay then and there. After all said and done we paid him agreed fee for his service.
Hope that helps

Oh Lord! Please be with us this week!

We are a week late with manifest preparation and moving boxes and a few other things to Hyde Shipping. Thanks, Dave, for your helpful post.

We're looking forward to meeting some expats in Belmopan and making friends with local folk.

I often muse that not many of the 44,000 people who registered on this site actually use it. It has such good information (with exceptions!) and postings are very meaningful to others. Hopefully its use will grow.
