Established relationships with top carriers

Service on major lanes

We work with clients transporting goods through many of the major air and ocean thoroughfares around the world. Our team will work to understand your primary trade routes, and present transit options that fit your business.

Reliable capacity on major trade lanes

In a volatile ocean freight market, ensuring you’ll be able to secure space during peak times is essential to achieving your company’s goals. We offer multiple sailings each week with different carriers, ensuring you have access to truly secure space when it matters most.

Favorable rates through consistency

For decades, the traditional forwarder model has been to secure more space than needed, and fail to fulfill the reserved allocation. Carriers price this risk into their rates. Flexport takes the opposite approach: our proprietary procurement software helps us better plan and manage our allocation commitments with carriers.

A better way to ship LCL

For traditional forwarders, LCL shipments are often an afterthought. At Flexport, we value our clients moving smaller volume, and built software to maximize the convenience and flexibility of our LCL service. We optimize each leg of your shipment, bundle your goods with like products to manage customs clearance, and provide you with full visibility at every point of your cargo’s journey.

Flexport warehousing cuts transit times

By operating our own warehouses, we’re able to efficiently transload, segregate, palletize, and label your cargo for delivery to multiple destinations. Managing these processes from the same facility where we deconsolidate your goods saves you days of transit time, while providing a level of control typically reserved for traditional forwarders’ largest clients.
