Freight Forwarding Exports to the USA

Mercator Cargo is an independent freight forwarder, based in the UK. Having been operating for over twenty years, we regularly arrange export shipments to the USA from the UK.

Direct sea freight shipments from the UK to the USA depart from a number of UK ports, including Liverpool, Southampton, Thamesport and Felixstowe. Each of these departure ports have direct sailings to different parts of the USA.

Sea freight transit times vary from 7 days sailing to New York, to 31 days sailing to Los Angeles via the Panama Canal.

There are daily departures for air freight direct to various airports in the USA, including New York, Chicago, Texas and Miami.

As founding members of the global network Marco Polo Line (MPL), we have contacts with various freight forwarders across the USA. These connections allow us to offer a comprehensive door-to-door service across the States.

For exports to the USA from the UK, documentation needs to be prepared no less than three days prior to vessel departures.

So if you’re looking for an experienced freight forwarder to handle your export shipment to the USA, then give us a call – Tel. 02392 756 575. Email: sales@mercatorcargo.co.uk.

Container Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles See Construction of New Link Bridge

Construction of a new bridge has begun, linking the freight forwarding container ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles (LA) on the West Coast of the USA.

The current bridge linking the two international container ports is to be replaced by a higher bridge, allowing for some of the world’s largest freight vessels to visit the freight forwarding port of Long Beach.

The clearance of the new bridge will be 200 feet, an additional 45 feet on the current height. This will mean larger freight forwarding vessels will be able to safely pass to the port.

The project at the freight forwarding port is estimated to take around four years in total and cost approximately $1 billion USD.

If you are looking to export goods to the USA via the Long Beach or Los Angeles ports, or import through these ports, give our team of freight forwarders a call to discuss your requirements – Tel. 02392 756 575. Email: sales@mercatorcargo.co.uk.
