Why Sea Freight?

For highly bulky cargo like auto parts, industrial machinery, or mass quantities of IBC containers, ocean freight is the most reliable shipping method. Ships are one of the longest standing methods for linking trade markets all over the globe and thus a cost-effective way to transport a large amount of machinery or totes in one shipment. With access to a multitude of reliably staffed ports throughout the world, tracking the arrival of your goods is just as simple as shipping them.

More Affordable

The costs associated with water transport are much less when compared to transport by road, rail, or even air – especially when shipping high-volume, high-weight goods. This means a significant reduction in freight shipping rates so that you have extra money in your company budget for other business matters.

Eco-Friendly Economy

Many things leave carbon footprints on the Earth, but when compared to railroads, airplanes, or highway travel, ocean freight is known for having the most minimal impact. Ships consume much less fuel, and a lot more can fit on a freight transport ship than a plane or rail. You can safely transport materials, save money for your business, as well as play an important role in protecting the environment.

What Past Customers Have Said:

Franco C.

I have been using this group of forwarders for a few years now and they are just fantastic… Lamprecht is just awesome from start to finish - never a hassle from Customs, paperwork is always done correctly and they are fast and friendly on the phone.
Highly recommended.

Darryl J.

I had the opportunity to work with Lisa and Laura @ American Lamprecht and it was one of the most pleasurable experiences that I have encountered since my shipping and receiving career over 20 years ago. Their attention to detail, willingness to assist throughout the process and professional demeanor was outstanding. I would recommend their company for all of your import and export needs. FIVE STARS FROM DJ @ PIEDMONT HOIST AND CRANE. LADIES TAKE A BOW.

Tarry C.

Laura was fantastic. I'm a one-off importer of a Horse carriage without a clue what needed to be done. Laura handled my inexperience and my Chinese counterpart with graciousness and ease. My items arrived on time and were in good shape. I'd highly recommend Laura and her company to any first-timer or those that do this daily. How they treat this little person says a lot about how they must treat the big ones too. I and our horse thank you, Laura. 

Naudiac D.

Rod Reed

American Lamprecht, and in particular Allyce Corn, did an outstanding job in helping me with a recent import issue. She and the company were wonderful - she was very professional, responsive and great to deal with. I would recommend American Lamprecht and Allyce for any logistics requirements!
