Detail. That’s the difference between us and the other guys. And when it comes to global transportation, we have the solution you need to ensure that your cargo gets to its destination as fast and affordably as possible.
In need of shipment? Our variety of services includes:
Air service without the exorbitant fees you’ve come to expect. Faster timelines than UPS or FedEx can hope to manage. Because slow and expensive shipments don’t fly with us.
International Courier Service
We’re direct resellers, which means our express letter service is available at lower rates than what you’ll find elsewhere. These rates, along with our Fortune 100 rates ensure you can better manage your mailing and shipping expenses.
Ocean Freight (LCL, FCL and consolidations)
Ocean shipping can be the most affordable option for freights of all sizes. Our extended network of international transoceanic partners allows us to offer cargo shipments with price consolidation efficiencies that save you more.
Keep in mind that several factors affect ocean freight deliveries, including the weather. A shipment from the United States typically reaches the Caribbean in one week, while it takes about 30 days to Asia.
International Road and Rail Transport
If you’re shipping between Canada, the USA, and Mexico, DRT offers international ground shipping. We utilize both trucks and trains to get your shipments where they need to be — and although this mode can take a little longer than air shipments, it’s a good solution for packages that are not perishable or otherwise time sensitive.
This mode of transportation is also more cost effective when compared to air freight and nearly everything can be shipped by rail. Plus, the rail system is expected gain popularity in the coming years to support the increase in intermodal shipping.
Inland Freight / Intermodal Transportation Service
Moving cargo across the ground can be complicated and cumbersome anywhere in the world — but especially when you need to cross several borders. Our ground transportation options (including rail and trucking) reach every country in the world.
Have large cargo? Crossing multiple borders? No worries. DRT’s inland domestic trucking and rail systems get your shipment where it needs to go seamlessly. And your packages are always traceable thanks to our intuitive online tracking system.
Project Cargo and Charters
When you’ve got an oversized cargo load, the more practical and affordable solution might be to charter a ship. We partner with international charters around the world and offer various selections you can choose from. “Own” your charter as it ships from Point A to Point B. Chartering vessels has saved our clients upwards of $150,000 per shipment!
Customs Clearance at Origin and/or Destination
When it comes to customs clearance, it’s important to work with the most experienced broker who is aware of your needs. This can mean a lot to your bottom line because an experienced broker will negotiate which taxes, duties and excises you will pay. Besides that, they also negotiate whether or not your charter can even pass through a nation.
Because we’ve gained decades of experience negotiating at ports in every country around the globe, you can feel confident knowing your shipment is safe with us. Each team member is given a minimum of 24 hours of training annually so they are informed about the world’s evolving laws and regulations. And that means your shipment will arrive at its final destination without trouble and in the most cost-efficient way possible.
Our customs brokerage services are available to anyone and everyone in need of an experienced broker to escort shipments to and from international destinations — even if we’re not managing your supply chain or shipping your cargo.
Warehousing and Distribution
When you ship cargo across the world — or even just the country — you might find you have warehousing needs. Maybe it’s a standard warehouse solution where you’ll store goods that just came through customs, or DRT’s bonded warehousing, which allows shipments to transfer directly from customs to shipping out of the country once again.
Our experienced team can navigate even the most complicated route with multiple stops in customs, stopovers before reshipment, or long-term storage and distribution. Our experience in global supply chain management allows us to be an excellent partner for handling your shipments, regardless of where they go and how they get there.
