Whether FCL or LCL we work with multiple vendors to consolidate full containers for load maximization. We handle all types of cargo and specialise in (non-food) retail/consumer goods
Purchase Order Management & Monitoring
Receipt of your purchase order by EDI, XML, FTP, flat file or fax starts the process of managing your “inventory in motion”. We check with your vendors 14 days before the early ship date to ensure everything is on schedule..
At point of origin ocean containers are loaded in a special manner for distribution centre or store direct delivery.

The cornerstone of our Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) service is our worldwide LCL Consolidation service. We make a commitment to you with a booking number and reserve space for your freight on that vessel. Space will be held for your freight until the last possible minute, which includes making special arrangements for late cargo delivery.
With the large volume of freight we consolidate, containers are always loaded for each destination point, which means your freight has minimal handling. NVOCC services also include FCL and buyer's consolidation. Special rates are negotiated through service contracts. The cumulative experience in our worldwide network facilitates finding unique solutions to challenging shipping problems.
