Consignment guide for information on country restrictions



Ameritrans International is a forwarding company in charge of coordinating the moves of military members HHG internationally. Our local agents, at origin, will coordinate and perform the “pack-out” of your belongings in conjunction with the local Personal Property Shipping Office (PPSO). If you see something of concern during the packing of your household goods, please question the on-site packer. We want to minimize and/or eliminate any possible damages to your property. Prior to your pack date, you should receive an email from us with a attached letter regarding information about your move. We make every effort to make contact with our shipping members via email so that we may address questions throughout your move.

After your shipment has been packed at origin, we will coordinate the transfer of your goods from origin to whichever Port will service your move. Typically, shipments are moved via freight train or Semi Trailer. Once your shipment has reached the Port, our Port agents will assign your goods to a container ship heading for your destination. As soon as we know the ETA of your goods into your destination Port, you will once again, be contacted via email to alert you of the timing and to notify you which of our destination agents will be in charge of delivering your goods.

Please understand that we make every effort to move shipments as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible. However, back-ups at the Port, due to large volumes of shipping, do occur. In some cases this will affect the timing of delivery. We make every effort to ensure that you are kept abreast of these happenings.

If you need assistance, or have any questions on the coordination of your move from “pack-out” to delivery, please feel free to contact us here at Ameritrans. We can be reached during normal business hours (PST) at (800) 772-1821. Please see the contact page of this website for emails and further numbers.

Thank You!
