Logistics Plus Fast-Boat Shipping Service

Logistics Plus Fast-Boat Shipping Service

Logistics Plus is pleased to offer a Fast-Boat shipping service as a viable air freight alternative for importers needing to get their critical shipments from China. By maintaining LOFO (last on, first off) contracts with major ocean lines, Logistics Plus can provide importers with expedited customs clearance, transloading at our Los Angeles facility, and final delivery to any location in the United States.

Please note that our Fast-Boat shipping service is only available from Shanghai and Ningbo to the port of Los Angeles. Traditionally, this service is for full containers only. However, if you have LCL (less-than-container load) needs, our imports team can help coordinate consolidations out of Shanghai/Ningbo for the same service.

Now more than ever, our Fast-Boat service can assist customers in getting their containers to the East Coast promptly by avoiding the ongoing bottlenecks at the Panama Canal.

Importers interested in learning more about our Fast-Boat shipping solutions are encouraged to email imports@logisticsplus.com.
