What Is an Ocean Freight Liner?
Ocean freight liners are used to transport international cargo all over the world. What distinguishes freight liners from other ocean-going cargo vessels is that they run regular ocean routes on fixed schedules.
FreightCenter specializes in international shipping via ocean liners and air transport. Our multimodal shipping options combine various modes of transportation to streamline your international shipping needs. Sea cargo is always containerized for transportation. Your freight can be shipped in two ways, less than container load (LCL) and full container load (FCL). Less than container load allows you to purchase only the space needed within a container and is the most economical way to ship small shipments overseas.
FreightCenter is continuously building relationships with ocean freight liners around the world. FreightCenter’s freight shipping specialists can assist you with every step of the freight liner shipping process. They will compare quotes from top carriers to help you save money, arrange logistics for pickup and delivery, walk you through documentation and insurance options, dispatch your shipment and even help track your freight shipment up until the day it arrives.

“I didn’t know where to get started with my international shipment. Luckily I found FreightCenter and talked to an agent. They helped me fill out paperwork, weigh my shipment, and arrange for truck delivery services at my destination in the port of Manzanillo, Mexico.” – Marc W.
