LTL & FTL Shipments

Partial load consignments are returned to our Boston warehouse where they will be crated or palletized. They will then be shipped through one of our carefully selected NVOCC’s (Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier). LTL is the most economical way to ship Household Goods, Luggage, Furniture and low volume without investing in a Full Container load. All shipments are processed a DDU, (Delivered Duty Unpaid)

Full container Load of household goods will be loaded at your home whenever possible. Carriers often allow for 3 Hrs live load. We can also load and package your goods into the Ocean Container.  Once sealed, the container will travel directly to the Boston port or your nearest gateway and will not be opened again unless required for U.S customs inspection.

Prior to the shipment’s departure, you will be provided with the shipment’s departure date, complete sailing details including the estimated arrival date and a point of contact at your destination. Once the vessel leaves the port, you will receive a Bill Of Lading to help you clear Customs at destination and pick up your material.

Almost all international shipping companies will use these containers, as they offer a much better protection for contents and higher discount rates.

How to Ship Ocean Cargo

You see the containers beeing transported on the highway in Boston MA and wonder what is inside them? International container shipping is our most popular service for overseas and ocean cargo services. We offer different sizes and services inside of these containers to give our customers the best values for their money. We offer FCL and LCL container service to most international destinations including France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Australia, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Asia, and Africa. In case you are wonding, FCL & LCL stand for full container load and less container load respectively.

Less than Container Load Option

If we have an international move of a one or two bedroom apartment with a number of boxes. It wouldn’t make sense to book an entire 20 foot container and only use a small amount of space. So to save you money, we fill the container with other shipments bound for the same final destination.  This gives your overseas transportation the most value for your money as you only pay for the space you use. However, there may be a delay because your packages won’t leave the port unless the container is full.

Full Container Load Option

This option allows FULL use of the container. This just means that you’ve booked your own container and the space to the fullest. This is because LCL containers need to be full before they leave, while FCL can leave with just your goods. This is more efficiant, costs more but worth the money for Households and International Moves.
