Ocean Cargo Services
Our international correspondents and consolidators, with many decades of facilitating ocean cargo services, provide the highest level of communication and coordination with our customers. You can trust On Demand to make sure your ocean freight gets where it’s going safely and on time.
As we serve as an experienced freight forwarding agent, we will oversee customs clearance, all risk marine insurance placement, information technology services, local dray, and customs classifications. On Demand files the export declarations, arranges pick-up, and confirms delivery at in-land points.
Our ocean freight shipping services include:
- Less than Container Load (LCL) is a low-cost solution when you do not have enough cargo to fill a full container. On Demand provides economy LCL service to thousands of addresses across the globe.
- Full Container Load (FCL) is a service for shipments which contain enough cargo to fill a 20-foot, a 40-foot, a 40-foot high cube or a 45-foot ocean container. Special equipment can also be enlisted such as Opentop, Flatrack and Refrigerated containers.
- Break Bulk Cargo is a service when packaged goods of odd or oversized dimensions can be transported in bags, boxes, crates, drums, or barrels and may not be in shipping containers.
- Roll-on/Roll-off (RO/RO) are vessels designed to carry wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars, that are driven on and off the ship on their own wheels or using a platform vehicle, such as a self-propelled modular transporter. For non-motorized vehicles, they can be towed on and off the ship.
