Full Containers for Domestic Ocean Freight
Containers are large, metal storage units which safely and effective house all types of shipped cargo. They’re ideal for ocean freight delivery. Since they’re made with high-grade materials and constructed to absorb stress which may occur during ocean freight delivery, they provide the utmost protection. Because we provide all-inclusive delivery services, if you choose to ship via container, within our quote we can offer container movement methods like cranes or lifts. However, it’s important to remember that using an entire container to fill can help to exponentially reduce shipping costs.
Less than Full Ocean Freight Containers
If you’re not shipping enough items to fill an entire shipping container, the option to have your items stored in a container is not out of the question. But, cargo stored in a container which is less than full is usually paired with goods from other shippers as well. Quotes for using containers which aren’t fully packed will be determined by size needed of the container in square footage. If this is the option you wish to go with, as a third party logistics provider, we provide inventory services upon the arrival of the ocean freight so that you can be sure your items have been separated and accounted for. Upon inventorization at the shipping port, we can then set up pick up services from the port of call to the delivery destination.
Ocean Freight Shipping Container Sizes
Quotes for domestic ocean freight will depend on size and weight of items shipped, location of delivery, and shipping container. There are 20 and 40 foot long ocean containers to choose from, and additional options like open top or high top to consider as well. If you don’t know what size container you need, United States of Freight can help you come up with the solution which best suits your shipment. And, provide you an estimated quote based on the information you provide.
