If you ship cargo internationally, you're probably used to bringing it to the port in one mode of transportation and transferring it to a different one to go onto the vessel. And, if that's the case, you've probably had to file a claim or two due to damage during the transfer process.
You shouldn't have to deal with damaged cargo on a regular basis.
Add a layer of safety to your international shipping process with roll-on/roll-off (Ro/Ro) shipping services from ATS International. As an asset-based Non-Vessel-Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) in U.S. domestic offshore trade lanes to Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Alaska, your cargo can stay on a company-owned trailer from pickup through delivery with no-transfer options.
Your freight will also receive the highest level of security with ATS International. As a C-TPAT-certified international logistics provider, we'll partner with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and other key stakeholders within the international supply chain to implement specific safety measures and best practices that ensure safe and seamless international shipping for your cargo.
