Domestic & Coastal Shipping USA
Combining rail, road, together with optimum coast to coast shipping solutions we provide comprehensive domestic and coastal freight options.
Domestic Freight Services, Coastal & Overland
Containerised Coastal Shipping is the preferred option among domestic freight services due to the efficiency of the service and cost effectiveness of moving cargo from port to port. In terms of both cost and environmental efficiency it is both cleaner and cheaper than the road and rail alternatives. In some cases multimodal (Rail/Sea) also form a component of our domestic and coastal offer. Each route is typically devised to optimise transportation costs and can vary based on city.
Forming another integral piece of the intermodal supply chain our domestic and coastal freight services interlink with core freight offerings to optimise delivery costs and timings. Typically these services encompass coastal sea freight options coupled with land based services such as road or rail.
We work with the world’s largest international carriers to provide robust and efficient sea freight services. We have operated a dedicated sea freight logistics business line for decades, and specialise in delivering tailored services at the best available freight forwarding rates, combined with dependable sailing schedules from and to most major ports.
Whatever you are looking to ship our road freight service provides the integrated logistics solution that you need to ensure your goods are delivered end to end. In most supply chain solutions road forms an integral piece of the ecosystem. We provide both FTL and LTL freight options to our customers.
Rail freight is an additional service that is integral to the global supply chain. We provide a range of high speed interlinking rail logistics services to deliver maximum efficiency. Typically we provide standard rail freight, bulk and project freight, which generally involves movement of large and complex machines. Rail also forms a key component within our intermodal freight service.
Coastal Shipping Explained
Coastal shipping is confined to a country. It is a type of cabotage, where goods are transported from point A to point B along a country’s coast by smaller vessels. These small vessels are also known as coasters. Most countries these days allow local as well as international shipping companies to operate on coastal routes. Unlike overseas shipping where ships sail between ports located in different countries, coastal shipping covers only ports within a particular country. It caters to the domestic trade of that country only.
