New! Tacoma facility

New! Tacoma facility

After an extensive search we have found a facility in Tacoma where we can offer the same level of service our customers have come to expect from us in Seattle. With the movement of the Grand Alliance (Hapag Lloyd, NYK, and OOCL) to Washington United Terminal, the need increased for a CFS facility close to Tacoma ports. At our facility at 2150 Port of Tacoma Road we can handle your dry containers as well as the large variety of oversize, out of gauge, and overweight commodities for either import or export. Call our Seattle office at 206-933-0515 for information or scheduling.

Off the ship and on the road in a flash!

Off the ship and on the road in a flash!

Our list of project cargo success stories keeps getting longer, while the time it takes us to get project cargo off the ship and onto the road keeps getting shorter.

In our latest success story, our crew offloaded and transloaded heavy and high-value parts for transformers from 11 flat racks and a 40-ft dry container onto 11 over-the-road trucks in under 9 hours. The cargo was off the ship and on to its way to its final destination in Baltimore, Maryland, in a flash.

The reason? Our expert long-haul personnel, who worked up very specific load plans before the cargo was even offloaded from the container. The load plans, for 11 specific types of  trailers, were exactly accurate and greatly facilitated the rapid load and departure time.

Call us at 800-652-6622 whenever you need cargo offloaded, transloaded, or transported.
