Freight forwarders facilitate the entire shipping process between Miami and Grand Cayman and vice versa. When shipping to or from Miami there are three options you can consider, depending on the quantity. All companies charge by cubic feet, rather than by weight.
Firstly, you can book by the container load, secondly, your belongings can be consolidated with other packages, in what’s known as Less than Container Load (LCL) and thirdly, there is the small packages service, which is particularly useful if you’re buying items online from vendors that won’t ship to Cayman. If you need this service, you will be provided with a postal address in Miami for your package to be delivered to, it will then be shipped to Cayman. For all three services the freight forwarder will organise all the paperwork and clear the goods through Customs.
Keep in mind that some items cannot be imported into the country due to certain laws. For example, all items that depict the cannabis plant are prohibited from entering the Islands, as well as obscene writings and drawings, gambling instruments, pellet guns and catapults, certain vehicles and more.
The following companies offer this type of freight service. Note: You should contact the office in your country of origin to start the process.
