Companies that rely on ocean freight shipping services to transport cargo understand the importance of choosing a trusted shipping company and the enormous implications an inexperienced freight broker or consultant can have if the shipment goes wrong or gets held up in customs. BGI Worldwide Logistics is licensed as a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), and is a bonded ocean freight forwarder. This means BGI has significant industry experience and the financial stability you can trust.
We offer a complete range of ocean import and export freight services including general cargo, specialized items, oversized loads, heavy equipment, hazardous materials (hazmat), and high value. BGI offers transit with carriers designed to handle specialized cargo, for cargo that doesn't conform to standard container sizes. Most roll on roll off cargo is stored under deck to ensure it remains protected.
BGI also offers domestic ocean freight services from any domestic port of origin within North America including Hawaii and Alaska as well as commonwealths such as Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands to any domestic destination.
Full Container Load (FCL)
BGI provides door-to-door services including drayage for full containers. A full container load (FCL) is cargo moving in a single rigid, sealed, reusable metal box in which the merchandise is shipped by an ocean carrier. All containers will have construction fittings, or fastenings able to withstand, without permanent distortion, all stresses that may be applied in normal service use of continuous transportation. Shipping full containers helps lower shipping costs. Click here to see container specifications.
Less Than Container Load (LCL)
BGI's expert consolidation services can combine smaller shipments (LCL) that are going to the same destination port, and provide you with reduced shipping costs. At the port of destination, we carefully deconsolidate the shipment and deliver to the final destination. A less than container load (LCL) shipment is a shipment of cargo that does not fill a container and is merged with cargo for more than one consignee or from more than one shipper. LCL freight costs are based on a dollar amount per cubic meter.
BGI has an extensive network of FCL and LCL carriers who can accomodate almost any commercial shipment.
