Ocean Freight Transportation Services

ocean freight transportationGlobal Shipping Services is a fully licensed NVOCC (Non Vessel Owning Common Carrier) ocean freight forwarder providing services to and from all major ports worldwide. We currently hold contracts with all major shipping lines and consolidators and are thus able to offer weekly ocean shipping upon request.

Our Ocean Freight Services Include:

  • Full Container Load (FCL): Use FCL ocean freight shipping for valuable cargo that you wouldn’t want to transport with other cargo (LCL). FCL is also a good option if you need to ship larger loads (12+ pallets)
  • Less than Container Load (LCL): LCL shipping means you’ll share container space with others that are also shipping cargo. This can be a more cost-effective option for shipping smaller loads overseas.
  • Reefer Containers: We can ship your perishable goods overseas in refrigerated or temperature-controlled containers to protect them from spoilage and humidity. Your goods can be shipped at the ideal temperature for your product, whether it’s is below freezing or moderately cool. We also provide shipping containers that keep perishable goods such as fruits and vegetables in ideal condition throughout transport.
  • Hazardous Containers & Dangerous Goods: Dangerous goods include but are not limited to: pharmaceuticals, radioactive materials, explosives, gases, flammable liquids and solids, corrosive substances, oxidizing substances, dry ice, lithium batteries, fuel cell engines. We are Dangerous Goods Certified and transport your hazardous goods overseas safely to their destination, in compliance with U.S. and international regulations.
  • Roll-on, Roll-off (RoRo): We ship any type of roll-on, roll-off cargo such as automobiles, trailers, tractors, motor homes or any type of heavy machinery or equipment on wheels that can easily be rolled on and off Ro-Ro vessels for transport.
  • Container Loading & Unloading: We ensure that your containers are safely loaded and unloaded from vessels and offer our ground shipping network for transportation to a final destination.
  • Transloading Container Trucking: We’ll help you eliminate warehousing costs and meet just-in-time delivery demands with our transloading services. As soon as your cargo arrives to the port, it can be loaded onto our trucks and delivered directly to its destination.
  • Warehousing & Distribution: We have bonded warehouse space in ports around the world and several throughout the U.S. to help you manage inventory and distribution.
  • Shipping Documentation for Importing & Exporting: Obtaining letters of credit and other documentation necessary to complete the importing and exporting process can be a headache. As experienced freight forwarders, Global Shipping makes this process as smooth as possible and provide you with bills of lading and the necessary documentation to facilitate your importing or exporting process.
  • Cargo Insurance: We provide different cargo insurance options that protect against loss or damage to your cargo in transit overseas. Cargo insurance is essential to ocean freight transportation and protects your goods from seawater flooding, storms and acts of God, vessel collision and other unforeseeable events.
