    I always thought it was Yama and I could never figure out what a yama was. At one point I thought it was the Yamaha motorbike.

                              Barrel a come! - 'Christmas a come so ship mi lama'


                              [/ QUOTE ]
                              now eagerly anticipating the barrel of goodies from them. It is great to receive these gifts but sometimes people are left wondering if the hassle of customs and clearing is worth it. From long hours at the wharves or post office, the process can be tedious.

                              This week, Lifestyle will give you tips on shipping and clearing barrels and other Christmas packages to help reduce the stress when collecting your 'lama'.

                              DEALING WITH THE WHARF

                              Annica Hamilton, executive assistant at the Kingston Wharf, says that the most important way to eliminate the stress is to ship early.

                              "Ship early and collect it early. Sometimes persons' parcels or barrels arrive only two weeks before the rush period and they wait until Christmas week to collect their goods. Why wait until Christmas week when we have a 1,000 persons to contend with? Clear your goods now."

                              Shipping early, Ms. Hamilton says, would be right now if you did not do so in October. "If persons ship now they will get their goods by the first week of December."

                              She explained that there was no need to worry about what items to ship because at Kingston Wharves, "Any and everything legal can be shipped. Once packaged properly there is nothing that you can't ship. The key is packaging properly," Ms. Hamilton said.

                              Ms. Hamilton also addresses the issue of 'hustler brokers' - persons who try to scam money from customers at the wharf.

                              "Unfortunately in our system, some people who are hustler brokers (not legitimate staff) try to make some quick money from waiting customers. They remain on the wharf the entire day, looking for persons to scam. To avoid these people, get a licensed custom broker, or identify a Kingston Wharves worker who will be wearing a Kingston Wharves shirt, and or the company's identification badge."

                              USING A CUSTOM BROKER

                              Ms. Hamilton notes that one way of eliminating time spent at the wharf is to use a custom broker. These brokers will deal with the shipping and sometimes delivery of the goods. Using a custom broker may also be best when shipping heavy equipment or lots of barrels. She says that some persons might not use a broker because of the question of trust; however, the broker reduces time.

                              "Some customers want to collect their barrel personally to check if all items are inside, but like everything else, using a custom broker to ship goods has its pros and cons."

                              Using a customs broker may also carry an extra cost. Mary Washington of Tropical Shipping agency, 96 Church Street, Kingston, says that a broker reduces the hassle at the wharf.

                              They deliver door to door and anywhere in Jamaica, except in volatile areas. Tropical Shipping only ships from New York, and Ms. Washington says it takes a week for the items to reach Jamaica.

                              "We ship everything. People mostly send food, clothing and electrical appliances," Ms. Washington said. She notes that persons must ship now as the Christmas rush has started. "Right now we have containers every other week, compared to months ago when we had containers every two weeks."

                              When shipping through a broker, weight is not a factor. For door-to-door, everything is paid from overseas, and it costs roughly US$250 for shipping, wharfage, customs duty, and valuation. In New York, Tropical Shipping is located at Trans-Jam Express Shipping, Brooklyn, New York, and P.J. Shipping, St. Alban's, New York.

                              "We love the wharf system, we love the to and fro," says Mary Washington
