Container Shipping & Freight

Container shipping can be overwhelming. Getting your container to the continent is a challenge of its own and is enough to give you headaches.

That’s why we’re here to make sure your headaches stop the moment your container reaches North America.

We’re here to guide you through the process and to make sure the carrier has all the necessary information. It goes without saying that we also make sure to find the right carrier for you and that they pick up on time!

Unfortunately, with container shipping there are higher risks of delays than with standard shipping which can even cause extra charges.

This is what you can do to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible:

  • Make sure to request your quote on time
  • Check for your vessel identifier, container number, port code and shipment details as soon as possible
  • Pay all port/storage fees as soon as possible
  • Make sure the consignee can offload in a reasonable amount of time
  • Provide Freightera with the incoming port/delivery locations
  • Contact your Freightera shipping specialist with any questions

All of the above is important as port delays are what causes most extra charges and inconveniences.

To top it all off, not all carriers can perform container shipping services. Only carriers with port clearances are viable for this type of job which can cause you additional headaches. Freightera is here to help you find such carriers!

We have a division that specializes in container shipping. If you need a container quote, write to us at [email protected], call us at (800) 886-4870 Ext. 1, or chat with us.
