Rosa Camasta, an export services professional in our Chicago office, has been guiding shippers on export shipping logistics and the best way to move their goods via sea, truck and air since 1980. As a freight forwarding expert, she knows to ask if certain merchandise is temperature or moisture sensitive, and should be booked below a steamship’s deck, or if certain airlines should be avoided for excess delays.

Personal effects, food items, autos – Rosa’s shipped them all. “One time I did matching Porsches,” she says. “His was black; hers was white.”

But Rosa also handles less glamorous items too, such as huge boring and drilling machines, auto parts and once, even a 20-foot container of condoms headed for the Far East.

“Experience is important; you have to know what you are doing, how to pick up freight and book it, how to prepare an inland bill of lading,” said Rosa.

“You need to know if a shipment contains licensed goods, or dangerous goods, or if the shipper is unaware if they are sending merchandise to a boycotted country. If that is the case, and the U.S. government finds out, there will be penalties and there will be delays.”

Rosa roots for the shippers. She wants them to meet their deadlines, realize cost savings and increase their sales. She is generous with her hard-earned knowledge and will prepare export services and freight estimates to potential clients or counsel her customers on related shipping questions without reservation.

Her clients reward her with their business year after year and clearly consider her a part of their team. Contact Rosa today.
