WHAT IS CONTAINER FREIGHT?
Containers are used for domestic and international shipments. Domestic container shipping uses a combination of rail and truck, while international containers are typically moved by ship and truck.
HOW DO YOU SHIP CONTAINER FREIGHT?
Container freight often entails more than one form of conveyance, making it a tall order for an infrequent shipper to arrange. Carriers prefer to work with companies that sign a long-term contract guaranteeing a minimum number of shipments. Infrequent shippers rely on 3PLs (3rd Party Logistics companies) to arrange shipping with the carrier(s that provide the best combination of rate and service.
