Horizon Launches Int’l Non-Vessel Ocean Shipping

Monday, January 26, 2009

Horizon Logistics, LLC, has launched an international ocean shipping service to offer supply chain solutions to U.S. importers and exporters. Horizon Logistics has been licensed by the U.S. Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) to operate as a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC).  As an NVOCC, Horizon Logistics is able to issue its own bills of lading and public tariffs, utilizing the service of vessel operating partners. The first shipments moving under this new service were loaded during the week of Jan. 19

"Our entrance into the international ocean shipping arena is actually a re-entrance," said Brian Taylor, President of Horizon Logistics. "Many of our staff members started their careers at Sea-Land Service, Inc., the company that started our business and pioneered container shipping 52 years ago, and was a leading international ocean carrier for decades."

While the company will serve all international trades, Horizon Logistics initially will focus on serving the transpacific trade lanes between Asia and North America, offering competitive ocean rates, inland logistics services and arranging for Customs clearance for integrated import/export solutions.
