In 2012, ABF Global expanded its portfolio of global solutions to include Ocean LTL: a single-contact, expedited less-than-container-load/less-than-truckload (LCL/LTL) supply chain solution for customers who import from overseas manufacturing centers.
By combining the innovative ABF Freight® Dual-System Network with top-tier NVOCC (non vessel operating common carrier) shipping, we are able to provide reliable global shipping solutions that offer importers unparalleled control and visibility. Our Ocean LTL service is a great compliment to our already successful FCL (full-container-load) business, which has been around since 2006.
A service offered through ABF Global division, Ocean LTL features guaranteed weekly departures on a fixed day and schedule, which enables us to expedite shipments up to 40% faster than traditional LCL sources. Long-term planning is enhanced by advanced scheduling for consolidation and departures. In transit, virtual warehousing and dynamic rerouting enable on-the-water inventory allocation and order fulfillment directly from the container to the end-user or multiple delivery locations.
Customers experience truly seamless service from end-to-end. While Ocean LTL shipments may originate as LCL shipments overseas and deliver as LTL shipments in the US, customers benefit from one customer service contact trained to assist with end-to-end documentation services, seamless visibility and single-source pricing and invoicing.
We handle everything. We’re a synchronized local, regional and transcontinental motor carrier, a non-vessel operating common carrier and a global logistics service provider—linked together by a state-of-the-art technology platform that is the envy of the industry.
