Ocean Freight Forwarder Services
To the uninitiated, it might seem like a pretty simple task to move cargo from point A to point B. If it was really just a matter of putting a container on a ship and sending that ship to the destination, it might be. But the world of freight forwarding doesn’t operate that way. The fact of the matter is that your container(s) may only make up a small percentage of the ship’s cargo. That ship may stop in several ports before it reaches your items’ destination.
That’s why it’s essential to choose an ocean forwarder with a reputation for precision logistics. A company that treats every shipment like it’s their sole responsibility. With almost a half-century in the industry, Dedola Global Logistics is that company. We have a reputation for accurate, timely delivery of products, delivered in a pristine state.
Using Technology to Achieve Results
Dedola Global Logistics is a state-of-the-arts ocean freight forwarder. What that means is that we take advantage of modern GPS and tracking technology to offer our clients things like digital quick turnaround quotes and cargo tracking capabilities. We want our clients to know what’s going on with their freight during every step of the process. Additionally, our advanced logistics ensures the fastest delivery of your products to their destination.
Full and Partial Container Options
Dedola Global Logistics caters to importers and exporter shipping full container loads (FCL) and less-than-container-loads (LCL). And clients requiring consolidation and coordination of shipments from various factories. Some ship large amounts of a product at once. Others require the ability to send smaller shipments to multiple locations frequently. One of the advantages of working with a larger ocean forwarder, like Dedola, is that we contract with all the major carriers. As a result, our clients have access to ships frequently departing from ports worldwide. Variety and flexibility are great benefits enjoyed by a Dedola Global Logistics customer
