Ocean Freight

Port to port, door to door, Livingston provides a single-source ocean forwarding solution. Personal service. Cargo insurance. Competitive contracts.

Livingston is committed to helping you deliver on your customer promises. Our skilled staff works with flexible global logistics systems, a network of top agent partners, and premium ocean carriers to deliver on time and within your budget.

Predictability Optimized

Whatever you need, from straightforward FCL shipments to LCL shipments going to several destinations, Livingston will ensure the quality of the carriers, the timing of the shipments, and visibility throughout the passage. Responsive personal service is guaranteed. One company. One contact. First mile to final mile.

Every Option, Every Efficiency

We offer a full suite of global logistics services including booking and pre-booking planning, CFS station dispatch, documentation and banking, cargo insurance, drayage, inland transportation, transloading and segregating, packing and crating, palletizing and labelling, and dangerous goods handling.

Lower Rates, Better Performance

The best rates are achieved through experience and procurement strategies. We offer both. We’ll find the sweet spot between predictability for ocean carriers and optimal pricing, routing, and transit time. Our ocean freight teams will show you the options.

Documentation & Banking

Documentation and banking are critical elements of international air freight. Letters of credit are all about the details. We make sure your interests are taken care of and all terms, detail by detail, are met for final payment.

First Mile to Final Mile

Many ocean forwarders don’t handle your shipments from start to finish. Livingston provides full service from pickup to delivery for all import and export forwarding. We deliver your cargo, so you can deliver on your promises.

The Customs Leader

As one of North America’s top three customs brokers, we can normally make the journey faster and smoother at any North American border crossing when you combine your ocean freight handling with customs brokerage.

Ground Links to Everywhere

When ocean transport is only part of the journey, Livingston Freight is your connection to one of North America’s most comprehensive surface transportation networks. All modes. Top carriers. Long haul or regional. Seamlessly linked.
