Less Than Container Load Shipments

For less than container load shipments (LCL), industry-standard new or quality used lift vans are utilized. All air freight shipments are packed into industry standard tri-walled corrugate, palletized, banded air containers (E, D, and LDN). We also use lay-down wardrobes for air shipments to achieve maximum density. All lift vans are sealed and waterproofed prior to loading.

Full Container Load Shipments

Suddath typically orders 20-foot, 40-foot or 40-foot-high cube containers depending upon the volume requirement of the shipment. Prior to loading, containers are thoroughly inspected for any holes or leaks, and the bottom swept.

Steamship containers are loaded at your residence and unloaded at the destination residence, unless restricted by poor access. Containers are held within our agents’ secured facilities prior to and after port drayage, then remain sealed throughout transport unless a visual inspection is required by the customs agent in the destination country.

Custom Crating

All containers are specially treated and fumigated to meet environmental and customs standards, eliminating the need for drawn-out customs clearance procedures and reducing overall transit times. However, custom-built crates for international relocation services, when necessary, will be constructed to achieve the maximum possible density and protection for sensitive, fragile or high-value items should industry standard packing containers not provide the optimum density and/or load integrity.

To provide solutions for our customers international moving needs, Suddath offers different container options and transportation methods for the international shipment of household goods. Our experts will go over all options and figure out which works best for you and your budget.
