Crane Worldwide offers a full array of ocean services and is a licensed non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC).
Globalization and challenging economic conditions have made ocean freight services a primary mode of transport for supply chain managers and procurement specialists. While ocean movements can involve lengthy lead times the cost savings often rank higher on buyers’ checklists. At Crane Worldwide, we partner with dependable, global operators to gain access to all major ports throughout the world and provide ocean cargo solutions at competitive rates. We focus on utilizing the most direct routings in order to minimize both trans-loading and transit time. This approach significantly decreases the chance of costly delays and damaged cargo. With a complete range of ocean freight services, Crane Worldwide is equipped to manage any size shipment from your smallest LCL shipment to your largest project cargo or capital equipment movements.
Crane Worldwide is a corporate member of BIMCO. BIMCO promotes fair business practices, free trade and open access to markets and are a strong advocate for the harmonisation and standardisation of all shipping related activity.
Oversized or out-of-gauge cargo typically requires the use of special equipment or specific types of vessels. When large pieces of equipment or cargo do not conform to the dimensions of a standard ocean container, they must be shipped individually or on specialty equipment. Crane Worldwide’s operational specialists are highly skilled in assessing the transportation, crating and bracing requirements for your most challenging over-sized cargo movements.

Less than Container Load (LCL)
Crane Worldwide provides LCL services for ocean shipments that do not require the use of an entire container. We can consolidate your shipment and manage their transit cycle from point of origin to point of destination. LCL provides a cost effective transportation solution for smaller, less time-sensitive cargo shipments.

Using temperature-controlled cargo containers, cargo-hold placement and temperature monitoring, we can ensure temperature stability for your shipments. When combined with temperature-controlled ground vehicles, Crane Worldwide provides the ultimate door-to-door delivery for both domestic and international temperature-sensitive shipments.
