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 depending on what and where you’re shipping, the freight forwarding expects at ETC International can help you determine the best container for your needs.
BULK SHIPPING & ROLL ON ROLL OFF
Cargos shipped as “Bulk” or “Roll On Roll Off” are shipments that do not fit inside standard ocean containers or on flat racks. These types of shipments include Blenchers, Irrigation Plants, Bulldozers, Bobcats, Machinery, Conveyors, Boats & Vehicles – to name a few.
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, so their transit times can be longer.
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. Also, we can provide oversized load permits or mobile escorts, as needed. We provide our clients with quotes once we received the exact origin, destination port with the commodity name with weight, dimensions of the packed shipment. For exporters, we can assist with the filing of export documents, and for importers, we can handle the customs clearance.
