OUTSIDE THE CONTAINER THINKING
Not all shipping receptacles are right for every job. I mean, you wouldn’t pack batteries in an egg carton, why would it be any different when shipping something bigger like furniture or a bulldozer? There is a wide array of shipping opportunities beyond regular containerized cargoes and it also depends on what and where you’re shipping.
The freight forwarding experts at ETC International can help you determine the best container for your needs.
BULK SHIPPING & ROLL ON ROLL OFF
Cargoes shipped as “Bulk” or “Roll On Roll Off” are shipments that do not fit inside standard ocean container or on flat racks. To name a few, these include Blenchers, Irrigation Plants, Bulldozers, Bobcats, Machinery, Conveyors, Boats & Vehicles.
There are several benefits to choosing one of these options for your shipping needs, not the least of which is cost. Bulk or Roll On Roll Off can be less expensive than utilizing a flat rack option (more on this in a minute). Bulk and Roll on Roll off shipping have less sailing frequency than a container ship. This type of shipping has longer transit times.
INDIVIDUALIZED PRICING & PERMITTING
Inland deliveries and terminal handling fees for bulk ships are subjected to individual pricing. Our firm provides shippers with these details in advance of the shipment. And as needed, we can also provide oversized load permits or mobile escorts. To provide for the quote, we need to know the exact origin and destination port. The commodity name, weight and dimensions of how its packing are also needed for an accurate quote.
For exporters, we can assist with the filing of export documents.
And furthermore, for importers, we can handle the customs clearance.
