    Has anyone used UPS freight to get finished taxidermy back to the US. I have a competitive quote from UPS Freight to air freight from Polokwane, RSA back to Seattle where the crate would clear USF&W.

    Assume that I would still need to use CopperSmith or similar firm to help with clearing customs.

    Thank you in advance for experiences and input on UPS freight.

    UPS can handle it all and you won't need Coppersmith. UPS Supply Chain Solutions will likely charge you the fees to clear and handle, on top of the freight charges they quoted you.

    Thanks 375 Ruger!

    Though I live in the PNW now, Houston is where I grew up.
