Edward J Zarach and Associates advantages
We are a licensed and bonded Ocean Transportation Intermediary (OTI) and NVOCC. We have signed contracts with carriers and have direct access to our partners contracts around the world. Ocean freight is not just about price; it is about selecting the correct carrier, service and transit time to meet the needs of the cargo. Let our experts match your cargo with the right ocean service.
Edward J Zarach and Associates holds our IATA endorsement to book cargo directly with air carriers on your behalf and are an Indirect Air Carrier as defined by the TSA. We have the capability to quote, route and deliver cargo by air anywhere in the world directly or through our global network of partners.
Core to our mission is clearing Customs across the United States on behalf of our clients. We have the ability to file at any port of entry in the United States. This control allows us to focus on compliance within an importers supply chain and reducing the risk of both an audit and the likelihood that Customs would find a violation or error in classification, valuation or preferential criteria claim.
When not everything fits neatly into a container, talk to us about breakbulk, flat rack or vessel charting with our project cargo service. We have dismantled and transported factories, oversized machinery and staged, planned and delivered cargo to sites in remote locations for assembly. We have access to a network of specialized air, ocean and road transportation companies and equipment to move project cargo anywhere in the world.
Just as there are choices in carrier, routing and speed for international cargo, so are there for domestic. Less than truckload or full truckload, expedited or standard, intermodal or a combination of air / rail or ground, we work to first establish a client’s needs and then provide price and service appropriate solutions.
