Full Container Load (FCL) shipping is the standard for exporters of high volume shipments and repeat shipments. FCL shipments also guarantee the added security of cargo exclusivity.

With a diverse array of carrier routing options available, the Global Express Cargo team can design a carrier routing plan that optimizes your transit time to cost ratio.

FCL cargo is the core of our operation, and our extensive ocean freight forwarding capabilities include:

  • Complete schedule flexibility
  • Frequent sailings per port
  • On demand equipment availability

Carrier Owned Containers (COC) versus Shipper Owned Containers (SOC)

In addition to shipping your cargo in COC, we are also happy to transport your cargo in SOC, using your own equipment.

Our team is also capable of facilitating the purchase of ocean container shipping equipment for your organization to enable SOC shipment of your goods.

Contact us to discuss your SOC transportation and equipment requirements.
