Which Destinations Do We Ship To?

We have global coverage and an extensive network of partners throughout the United States and internationally. This means we are able to offer personalized and quality shipping services to and from the United States and most destinations around the world.


How Do We Transport Your Shipment Overseas?

We understand that every international move has its own unique needs and challenges. Depending on your international relocation requirements, your household goods can be shipped by sea freight, air freight or the combination of the two. Our Move Managers will create a customized solution to transport your goods.

Sea Freight

For sea freight shipments, your household goods are loaded into lift vans (large wooden crates) or a steamship container. Sea freight is generally the ideal transport solution for shipments with big or large volumes of items, or if storage is required at the destination.

Air Freight

For air freight shipments, your possessions are transported using containers that are constructed of industrial cardboard. Air freight is typically best used for transporting small and time sensitive items.
