Vessel Charter

The Option to Vessel Charter

Sometimes there are no regularly scheduled break bulk or general cargo vessels.  Other times the port of call is unpopular or unusual.  Sometimes liner break bulk services have too many stops and cannot deliver not fast enough.  Still other times, the amount of freight being shipped measures tens of thousands of cubic meters or tons.  In these instances, vessel charter is the only option for your cargo.  Let Texas International Freight be your guide to moving this cargo by vessel charter.  Things can go wrong in the freight business and our vessel charter service and close relationships with the steamship lines can save your project logistics from critical mistakes.  We will help your company avoid disastrous errors.  Such errors as incurring daily demurrage charges or running into liquidated damages issues.
