It is your responsibility to comply with current government regulations or laws applicable in each country

Shipments are subject to inspection and possible delay by customs or representatives of other government authorities

CCL will not transport any goods which are prohibited by law or regulation of any federal, state or local government in the origin or destination countries or which may breach any applicable export, import or other laws or endanger the safety of our employees and sub-contractors or the means of transportation or, which in our opinion, soil, paint or otherwise damage other goods or equipment or which are economically or operationally impractical to transport

Not all commodities can be shipped to all countries
