Ocean Freight

UWL is a leading freight forwarder, providing ocean freight services through all major U.S. & International ports

Our company’s history is rooted in deep relationships with ocean carriers.  In the 1960s, our parent company, World Shipping got its start as a liner agency for vessels transiting the Great Lakes, representing more than 35 carriers over the span of 50 years. 

We’ve developed strong, long-standing relationships with the leading steamship lines which give us the flexibility to choose the best carrier to move your sea freight, versatility on pricing to ensure we find the lowest rates, and access to equipment where you need it.

Our national Customs house brokerage license, best-in-class customer service, and time-definite services for sensitive delivery requirements translate to improved ROI for your company.

With strategic ocean carrier partnerships and an extensive network worldwide operating in all major and remote trade lanes, we provide accurate, timely cargo handling and delivery.
