Ocean Freight
Keep Your Business Sailing Worldwide
UPS Supply Chain Solutions® 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.

Freight Forwarding
As a forwarder, we book your cargo, arrange pick-up 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.
