Need Overseas Shipping Services?  Get help from a Non Vessel Operating Common Carrier or NVOCC.

A Non Vessel Operating Common Carrier or NVOCC is a shipment consolidator. Shipment consolidators provide a variety of international shipping services which include packing cargo, and picking up, transporting, and providing door to door cargo delivery, to customers all over the world.

An NVOCC functions as a cargo carrier by issuing bills of lading, also called a B/L or BOL.  Bills of lading are documents which acknowledge that goods have been received on board a cargo vessel for shipment to a specified destination and consignee for final delivery.

An NVOCC assumes responsibility for ocean freight, but an NVOCC does not own a cargo vessel. In order to become an NVOCC in the United States, a company must obtain an ocean transportation intermediary (OTI) license from the United States Federal Maritime Commission.  Companies that apply for the OTI license must pass a multi-step process administered by the Federal Maritime Commission.

There are many benefits to using a reliable and experienced NVOCC.  Good NVOCCs can help you save you money and time.
