Belgian container service provider FCLCARRIER is bringing its "blend of niche liner services and low-cost pricing" to U.S.-based and Canadian exporters.
Breakbulk, containerized, project cargo, roll-on/roll-off and specialized equipment options are among the services it offers. Among the destinations it serves are all of Central Asia, Mongolia, the Russian Far East and China. It even serves North Korea.
"Our service in Europe has been very popular with shippers because we move cargo to niche locations-that most carriers do not service at all-at very competitive rates," says Anton Plompen, FCLCARRIER's chief executive officer. "In fact, we are the low-cost leader, completely independent of the conferences, so we offer a truly unique shipping option for freight forwarders and shippers alike. Our customers also really like the fact that we move our own equipment to the locations we service, which is very different from the standard maritime services offered by most global carriers today.
"There is really no one servicing such niche markets as Nampo, Korea; Altai, Mongolia; and Vanino, Russia, to name just a few."
FCLCARRIER's services are supported by three agency partnerships, including Waves Logistics Corporation, representing the North American West Coast; Carolina Shipping Company, representing the Gulf and South Atlantic; and Seabridge Shipping Ltd., representing Canada.
