Transportation and Drayage Options Ideal for Your Business

Uncommon Carrier’s close proximity to all NY and NJ Metro ports benefits you for your import/export container requirements. Our company-owned fleet of “any size” tri-axle chassis combined, with the necessary overweight permits, will handle all types of ocean containers (20′, 40′ and 45′) that are up to 10,000 pounds overweight. We also provide a daily service to/from all the major container freight stations in the New York and New Jersey port. From full-container load (FCL) to less-than-container load (LCL), your shipments can be picked up and delivered expediently to any destination in the continental United States, or taken to our distribution facilities for further processing such as load refurbishment, container stripping, or cross-docking.

Our FTL (Full Truck Load) shipping is ideal when you have enough product for a full load, if you have a partial load but you prefer a dedicated truck, have high risk packages, or when time is an issue. Our LTL (Less than Truckload) ground freight transportation services save you money by combining shipments from multiple customers when demand for your products is average or stable, and is ideal for small business.
