Offshore Package Receipt and Consolidation

Ordering products on the Internet has become standard to the residents of the United States. The selection and value available with the click of a mouse has created opportunities for American consumers that were never before imagined.

The websites available in other countries do not offer a selection or variety of merchandise that comes close to what we enjoy here in the United States.

The next phase of Internet Retail Development will be to bring the selection and variety available here in the United States to the entire World.

As your business looks to take advantage of this new opportunity, look to Jet to provide the physical handling of the merchandise!
