Ocean Freight Services


BGI offers a complete range of import and export ocean shipping services for general cargo, specialized items, oversized cargo, heavy equipment, hazardous materials (hazmat), and high-value commodities. We provide transit with carriers designed to handle specialized cargo, and for cargo that doesn’t conform to standard container sizes. BGI also offers domestic services from any domestic port of origin within North America.

 

FULL CONTAINER LOAD (FCL)

A full container load (FCL) is cargo moving in a single rigid, sealed, reusable metal container in which the merchandise is shipped by an ocean carrier. All containers will have construction fittings, or fastenings able to withstand permanent distortion and all stresses that may be applied in normal service use of continuous transportation. We can provide door-to-door service including drayage for full containers. Shipping full containers can often be helpful in lowering shipping costs.

 

LESS THAN CONTAINER LOAD (LCL)


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’s expert consolidation services can combine smaller shipments (LCL) that are going to the same destination port providing you with reduced shipping costs. At the port of destination, we carefully de-consolidate the shipment and arrange delivery to the final destination.

BGI has an extensive network of FCL and LCL carriers who can accommodate almost any commercial shipment.


We offer standard 20′ and 40′ ocean shipping containers and the following specialized equipment for international import and export:
