Ocean Freight Rates

Ocean Freight Rates 

Looking to ship your cargo from the USA? Need a Shipping Overseas Rate? Worried about the safety and handling of cargo for international shipping? Would you like to have some advice on how to go about the shipping process? Here at the USG shipping Line, we will help you with this step by step process.

Shipping a full container load is one of the options in the Ocean Freight industry. They made by weathering steel and they are coming in different size and type. The containers get loaded, unloaded and transported on the wheel or flatbed. Depending on the type of cargo, containers are the most economical way to ship the cargo all over the world.

The Full Container Load (FCL) is an Ocean shipping method where the container get loaded for one shipper and one consignee.  Volume-wise, Full container load is the cheapest way to ship the cargo. US General Shipping offers full container load service from any place in USA or Canada to all the major cities and Ports in the World. You can have mixed commodities in a Full container load as long as there is not a mixture of the hazardous items in the same load. 

Besides the countries with a land border with the United States shipping to any other countries must be arranged via ocean freight :
Once you have requested an Ocean Freight rate the first question will be; Do I need a full container or less than container? The full containers are 20, 40 and 45 footer? Full container rate: For a full container rate you need to have the answers to the following questions: 
- What size of container do I need? 
- Can I manage the loading of the ocean freight container if the empty being provided to me? Many customers believe that they can transport their goods to the nearest port for loading them into the container, but such an option does not exist because the port authorities will not allow you to go inside of the port and load the container. 
- Where do I like to have my container loaded? 

All the charges for a door to door service on a full container are as follows; 
- Trucking of the container to the loading place 
- Loading of the container, Packing of the items and Pick up 
- Shipping by train from the Rail Station to the Port ( if shipment getting initiated from a Ramp) 
- Ocean Freight from the Port of origin to the port destination 
- Destination Port charges 
- Customs Clearance and import duty at destination 
- Local Trucking from the port to the final destination 
- Unloading of the container and returning the empty back to the port 

It is important to understand that is always cheaper to arrange each step locally. That means if you only use our service from your door to the port of destination and then arrange your destination part locally you will be saving some charges. Our international shipping containers rates also depend on the number of containers. 
Consolidation rate: Our consolidation rates are always calculated by the cubic feet. That means you will only pay for the space that you are taking and not for the full container, however it is highly recommended to use the 20 footer container if the volume of your shipment is more than 400 cubic feet. 

All the charges for a door to door service on consolidation are as follows; 
- Pick up of the boxes or packages from your door and delivery to our local terminal 
- Packing of the boxes 
- Transportation of the cargo to our export terminal 
- Ocean Freight from the Port of origin to the port destination based by the volume 
- Destination Port charges based on the volume 
- Customs Clearance and import duty at destination 
- Local Trucking from the port to the final destination 
Like the full container, you will be saving charges if you manage yourself any of these steps.
