Resources and support
Manchester Shipping offers an expansive network of locations and ocean freight experience to provide you a full array of global freight and transportation services. We can handle almost any size shipment, from less-than-container loads to full container loads, special equipment, and oversized cargo. You can access a single source to manage your ocean freight services worldwide.
As a forwarder, we book your cargo, arrange pickup and delivery, and manage shipping documentation, regardless of point of destination or carrier. With decades of experience, we facilitate the entire forwarding process according to your specifications and the applicable requirements of the import and export countries.
FCL (Full Container Load)
As one of the world’s leading Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCC),* we have the carrier relationships to offer frequent departures at competitive rates for full container load (FCL) shipments from major ports around the world.
LCL (Less-Than-Container Load)
When you don’t have enough cargo for a full container, we offer less-than-container load (LCL) departures between major ports, managing every step to give you visibility throughout the process.
When you need to bridge the gap between air and ocean, UPS Preferred LCL delivers Asia to U.S. transit times up to 40 percent faster than standard LCL routing without compromising on the economy you’ve come to expect.
When you have faster transit time requirements and air freight is too expensive, our sea/air service is an effective solution combining the economies of ocean freight with the speed of air freight.
When you need a customized single-project solution for movement of specialized equipment or involving specialized charter vessels, UPS Project Cargo Management solutions deliver global coverage, managed costs, and reliable project continuity.
