Top Reasons to Choose Universal Cargo
for Your Ocean Freight:

From Our Customers

  • My experience with UC has been terrific. As a start-up business, I had no idea what I was doing when we first contacted UC to help us bring our inventory into the US, and they took care of everything for us. From arranging the shipment and landing it and getting it through customs, to trucking it to our warehouse, they provide a turnkey solution.

  • Kellee has always been great about keeping us up to date on all the shipping information.

I wanted you to hear this, as you have very good people working for you, and I will not hesitate to recommend Universal Cargo.

I am so glad that Devin found me at the HPB Expo.

  • When we started our business in 2004 Universal Cargo was the freight forwarder our vendor used and we have used other forwarders due to the fact our suppliers supplied the freight and the majority of those have been a problem so we appreciate all that you have done for us and hopefully you feel the same about us.
