Ocean Freight Forwarding Services
Working as both an ocean freight forwarder and a NVOCC, MIQ can meet your ocean shipping needs in and between all international trade lanes.
The experienced MIQ Ocean Services team will develop a carrier solution and a load optimization plan to help achieve your supply chain goals. We maintain relationships with core carriers in all key global trade lanes. This includes managing contracts, tariffs and other aspects of the carrier relationship.
With the MIQ worldwide locations and our network of global partners, we can coordinate import and export shipments from door-to door, door-to-port, port-to-port and port-to-door. We ensure the correct paperwork is completed and filed properly, which includes customs-clearance processes, duties and fees, and cargo insurance.
MIQ can handle full container loads (FCL), less than container loads (LCL) and break bulk/oversize shipments. Our specialty services access flat racks, open-top structures, refrigerated and temperature controlled units, and tanks. We also can coordinate roll on – roll off (RO-RO), lift on – lift off (LO-LO) freight and ocean charters.
Container freight stations are strategically located to load and unload containerized cargo at the ports and provide capabilities for origin consolidation and deconsolidation activities.
With visibility through our PowerVIEW Web-based global track and trace technology, MIQ gives you and your business partners visibility to global shipments, 24/7. You can receive container status updates direct from the steamship lines’ back-office systems, along with proactive status alerts and exception notifications.
