Features of our ocean freight services:
Full Container Load
As the largest ocean freight forwarder from Egypt to the U.S. in terms of volume, Echo Logistics is fully equipped with the knowledge and experience to provide you with the scale and global coverage you need to smoothly deliver your FCL shipments to their final destinations while ensuring space, equipment availability, and competitive rates.
Less than Container Load
With our LCL shipping services you can still benefit from the cost advantage ocean shipping has over air shipping even when you do not have enough goods to accommodate in a fully loaded container. Using our weekly sailing schedule in frequently utilized lanes around the world, you can transport your partial ocean shipments whenever they are ready while only paying for the container space you use.
For break-bulk cargo that cannot be transported in standard intermodal containers due to their exceptionally large dimensions or weight, we can provide the knowledge and expertise needed for reliable process management until delivery. Echo Logistics offers competitive break-bulk rates, onsite supervision of loading/discharging, and complete visibility throughout the transportation process.
Roll-On and Roll-Off
The term roll-on/roll-off refers to freight that can be self-propelled, such as vehicles, trucks, forklifts, trailers, and cranes. We can handle the necessary documentation and acquire special governmental authorizations for road transport while providing a customized, safe, and secure option to move your heavy oversized cargo on highly specialized RORO vessels.
The term "Bulk" relates to dry cargo carried in loose form, and loaded directly in the holds of the ship. At Echo Logistics, we provide global customers with bulk shipping services ranging from iron ore, coal, grain, fertilizer, steel, timber to agricultural products, etc. We are able to offer a wide variety of ship types and an excellent business performance that meets every requirement of our customers.
Vessel chartering is ideal for project cargo where customers transportation requirements exceed the limitations of containerized transport due to the oversized and overweight nature of goods. With our 25 years of experience and comprehensive global network, we maintain close contacts to ship owners around the world and provide a wide variety of charter services, from bulk vessels to heavy lift vessels.
