FCL (Full Container Load)
As one of America leading NVOCC’s OSI maintains relationships and contract rates with over 40 ship carriers worldwide. We ship full container loads both inbound and outbound the United States. We’re a preferred GSA vendor and CTPAT certified company. (Please see specs below)
LCL (Less than Container Load)
When you don’t have enough freight for a full container load, we offer LCL service. The LCL option is a good way to ship smaller cargo at a more competitive price. LCL ocean freight is less expensive then air freight; however, it will have a longer transit time. If time is not of the essence then an LCL ocean freight option would be your best choice.
International Auto Shipping
When you need to ship your car overseas OSI can offer a few solutions. Shipping your vehicle overseas will require some documentation. Please make sure you have the original title for the vehicle. We will need the original title mailed to us so we can get it validated by US Customs. Any vehicle shipping out of the United States will require title validations. Certain countries have specific requirements. Please make sure to contact the destination port or customs to find out more details as to what the stipulations are for importing a vehicle. We offer a RO/RO (roll on roll off) service or full container service. RO/RO is the less expensive option, however, you would be required to bring your car to the port and pick up at the destination port. The vehicle would be loaded on a RO/RO vessel.
If you need a customized solution for the movement of specialized equipment or involving a specialized charter vessel, OSI is a great option. OSI Project Management delivers global coverage, competitive pricing and reliable service worldwide.
OSI offers service through all major ports and hubs in the Unites States. We have CFS (Container Freight Stations) locations at all major ports. If you’re looking for a less expensive option you can deliver smaller cargo to anyone of our CFS locations nationwide. This will help reduce the trucking costs.
