Freight Forwarder Services

Ocean Freight

Ocean freight remains one of the most popular ways for companies to ship goods, and when you are shipping products to your commercial customers by sea, you need an ocean freight forwarder you can be sure you can rely on every single time you mark a package for shipment. That means you want the experts at Universal Cargo handling all of your ocean freight shipping. We handle everything from start to finish no matter where your goods need to go, so you can send your products overseas with total confidence.
Whether you’re importing or exporting, Universal Cargo has your international shipping covered port to port or door to door in full container loads or less than a container loads. Specializing in container shipping since 1985, Universal Cargo is your reliable choice for shipping FCL, LCL, and reefer (refrigerated) shipping containers around the globe.

Air Freight

There is a reason why companies that offer standard shipping and ones that offer express shipping alike rely on air freight to get the job done. The fastest and safest way to import and export goods internationally is by air.
But if your air freight forwarder is not reliable, the speed and convenience of air freight forwarding will not help you. That’s why choosing Universal Cargo as your air freight forwarder is such a smart business decision. Our level of personal attention and commitment to customer service is just what you need for reliable air freight operations. Universal Cargo’s air cargo specialists will assess your specific needs and customize our air services for your large-scale project or smaller express shipment door to door, terminal to terminal, or anything in-between.

Warehousing

The company you rely on for fast and efficient overseas shipping is also the only company you need for commercial warehousing. One of the major challenges for a number of businesses is finding reliable product warehousing services. When it is not cost-effective for you to run and manage your own warehouse, but you need a place to keep your goods until they are ready to ship, turn to Universal Cargo.
We are your complete one-stop-shop for international shipping. With our new warehousing services, your import and export goods are in good hands. We store your goods until you need them, handle fulfillment, Amazon FBA prep, and even have pick and pack services. We’ll take good care of your products from the moment we receive them until they are ready to go.

Express4Air

One of the benefits of air freight is the ability to get packages to the buyer’s location incredibly fast. However, this has created a higher level of expectation on the part of package recipients. If you need an express air freight solution that can help you meet the demands of today’s more demanding B2B purchasers, Universal Cargo likely has a way to assist.
Have a smaller package you need shipped internationally fast? Universal Cargo’s Express4service ships 25kg to 100kg packages from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world in 3-5 days for most destinations. Including door pick-up, customs clearance, and door delivery, Express4Air is a quick, simple, and complete service. Enhance your ability to service and satisfy your commercial customers with express air freight forwarding from Universal Cargo.

Cargo Insurance

Don’t leave your cargo unprotected. Cargo Insurance comes in different types with different exclusions and you need the proper insurance for your specific shipments. Universal Cargo’s friendly and professional staff will take the complications out of insuring your cargo so you can be assured that your imports and exports are covered in the event of loss or damage.
