Freight Forwarding

Export

Air Freight – Epona provides consolidated and priority air services depending on our client’s needs and budget. For urgent or oversized cargoes we also offer full charter services with a wide variety of aircraft. We ensure that you and your clients are kept informed every step of the way to avoid delays and unnecessary costs.

Hand Carry/On Board Courier - Epona offers courier services for urgent and valuable cargoes. We ensure that your cargo is on the first available flight, clears customs upon arrival, and is delivered expeditiously to its final destination.

Sea Freight - Epona provides a comprehensive range of ocean freight services. We evaluate client’s requirements to ensure the most cost-effective ocean freight solution.

FCL (Full Container Loads) - Epona supplies ocean containers for the exclusive use of our client for each shipment. We can also purchase containers on our client’s behalf, refurbish them and sell them at destination once the cargo has been delivered safely. Container services are now available between most major ports around the world and Epona can make all the necessary arrangements on a door-to-door or hold-at-port basis.

In addition to 20′ and 40′ standard containers, specific equipment is also available to accommodate most of your cargoes, including open top, out of gauge and temperature controlled containers. When necessary or for ease of loading we can deliver containers to any location to place them at ground level.

LCL (Less Than Container Load) - Epona offers our customers the benefits of consolidated cargo services between most of the major industrial centers of the world.

Oversized Special Handling - Epona has experience in moving all kinds of freight and can access special equipment for the movement of any item with special needs.  These include:

  • Air Ride
  • Lift Gate
  • Flat Bed
  • Perishable
  • Dry Ice
  • Warehousing
  • Staging Facility
  • Refrigerated Trucks

Epona can arrange for a full packing service in compliance with DOT, IATA, and IMO regulations. Hazardous, perishable, temperature-sensitive, fragile cargoes are packed professionally to ensure that your goods arrive to their destinations in excellent condition.

Import

Epona provides the full spectrum of import services from any origin worldwide to any destination in the United States via the full modalities of transportation. We manage our client’s import needs to ensure compliance with changing regulations (e.g. 10+2 rule, C-TPAT). Our overseas agent will work closely with your foreign counterpart to ensure safe and efficient shipping and both parties will be kept informed of the progress of their shipment until delivery. Our services include remote location filing, pre-release, surety bonds and duty drawback services.
