We combine the competitive rates of a large NVOCC with a level of personal service you won’t get from steamship lines and large NVOCCs.

I.C.E. helps you...

Simplify Ocean Shipping, Door to Door

We prepare all documentation, book shipments, arrange delivery to the port, process paperwork at the destination office, clear Customs and manage final delivery.

Flexible Sailings

Unlike steamship lines, we have much more flexibility with bookings. We are not tied to one carrier or alliance and, as a result, can offer multiple sailing options from every major container port in the U.S. and Canada.

Competitive Rates

We leverage our freight volume and long-term relationships with carriers to secure excellent rates. You get the best of both worlds – exceptional service at competitive rates.


Smart container shipping yields big savings

A maker of steel wire was paying a steamship line $3,110 per 20’ container for door-to-door shipping at a max payload of 44,000 pounds, or $155.50 per metric ton. By arranging specialized trucking from the port to handle the extra weight, we increased the payload to over 55,000 pounds, bringing the shipping cost per metric ton to $129, a savings of $26.50 per ton! Based on an annual volume of 2,000 metric tons on this lane, the company is saving $53,000 per year.
