I recently made my first purchase on Aquabid for two betta fishes!! I'm incredibly excited to receive these two new additions to my family.
The transhipper occupation seems to be quite vague to me, and I was hoping for clarity.
All the information I can find online regarding transhippers is that some are better than others, but overall they're incredibly busy, and are unable to communicate as much as most people would like them to. I guess, I'm curious as to why there are only a handful of transhippers out there?
Is the importing process incredibly lengthy and difficult?
It seems that shipments from Thailand happen every two weeks? It also seems that the transhipper may have to spend most or all of their day at the airport as it goes through customs and gets inspected by the US Fish and Wildlife department?
It also seems that these transhippers just work for themselves. Is it not very profitable?
Does anyone have a clear understanding on the entire process for the transhipper?
