Ocean Freight Transportation Services

Transmodal Group is your number one global ocean freight shipping company.

Ocean Freight Shipping

Transmodal’s vast network of available steamship routes allows us to offer ocean freight shipping at competitive rates for businesses of all sizes and budgets.

We have access to shipping capacity to be able to offer less than container loads (LCL), full container loads (FCL), and break bulks.

At Transmodal, our clients can select the best-suited and most cost-effective steamship options based on their specific requirements:

  • Time sensitivity
  • Temperature control
  • Perishable goods
  • Shipment size
  • Hazardous materials

We also provide the option to lease 20 foot, 40 foot, 40 foot high tube, and 45 foot containers, or for clients to use their own containers.

For shipments with less than a full container load, we recommend using our Freight Consolidation Services.

For smaller shipments that are time sensitive, we recommend using our Air Freight transportation services.
