Ocean Freight Services - Bonded Container Freight Station

CFS Services from Porreca Freight

CFS for containerized cargo includes:
•Packing and unpacking
•Location and storage
We manage import and export CFS operations as well as other containerized freight processes. For export, we load over hundreds of containers each year of consolidated freight which equates to thousands of individual consignees or recipients of the cargo. Import deconsolidates hundreds of consolidated containers a year with each bill of lading delivered safely, courteously and on time.

Efficient Containerized Freight Services

All drivers picking up or delivering to our facility are handled and processed quickly with a minimum stay for the entire process. Those that are delayed due to lack of or improper information are assisted and handled as well.
At Porreca Freight we handle:
•Open Tops
•Flat Racks
•FCL and LCL

Our receiving crew is very detailed with exceptions and suitability of freight and packaging that gives the best protection from claims. All cargo is meticulously received with detailed condition reports. Crating and repair is available for anything not suitable for export or domestic transport.

Export and Import Services

Our Container Freight Station export services save time and improve containerization by modifying cube dimensions and using fortress-like blocking and bracing. Shipments are thoroughly checked for packing flaws and unsafe shipping characteristics.

Import operations offers all freight services needed with the exception of customs brokerage. We provide customer service coordination for clearance, exams, compliance issues and delivery.

Our cartage and inland delivery programs provide the best in unload-and-ship operations, shipping daily rather than waiting for weekend consolidations.
