We expertly pack each container to maximize space and speed up delivery, saving you both time and money.

LCL Shipping

Our Less-Than-Container-Load (LCL) shipping option helps you save money without compromising on service. Combine smaller shipments into a single container with our LCL service. It's a convenient and affordable way to get your goods where they need to be. 

Break Bulk

Break Bulk shipping services allows you to easily move heavy, oversized or odd-shaped cargo. We specialize in efficiently handling diverse shipments like bulky equipment, machinery, and project cargo with care. Experience peace of mind knowing your unique cargo is in capable hands. 

Non-containerized load

Rely on our expertise in handling overweight and out-of-gauge (O.O.G) shipments unsuitable for standard containers. From flat rack or open top containers to flatbeds, we provide tailored solutions with premium sea freight carriers and specialized equipment. Our dedicated team ensures all permits, blocking, bracing, and packing are in place for a smooth transit.

Reefer Containers

These specialized containers meticulously regulate temperature and humidity, mirroring the optimal storage conditions for your specific product, from delicate pharmaceuticals to farm-fresh produce. These refrigeration units offer precise temperature control, while rigorous humidity management safeguards against spoilage.

Buyers Consolidation
