Container Shipping & Freight

Container freight shipping can be overwhelming. Getting your container to Canada, or to the USA from overseas 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 entire process. We’ll find the right carrier and do our best to make sure that they pick up your shipment on time. You can see hundreds of 5-star customer reviews as a testimonial of our reliability. 

Unfortunately, with container shipping, there are higher risks of delays than with standard freight shipping. 

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 cause most extra charges and inconveniences.

To top it all off, not all carriers can perform container freight shipping services. Only carriers with port clearances are suitable for this type of job and Freightera is here to help you find them!
