What Is a Container Freight Station?

What Is a Container Freight Station?

A container freight station is a facility that serves as a staging area for receiving bonded cargo from overseas shipping containers, international air freight, or bonded cargo from any other conveyance. Once safely stored, the cargo can be rebooked onto another carrier for the next leg of its journey.

Container Freight Station Benefits

By choosing our container freight station, you have access to multiple benefits:

  • Avoid Additional Fees from the Ocean Freight Carrier

    Once an ocean liner carrying freight reaches port, the ocean freight carriers typically only give suppliers 3 to 4 days to return their container. If containers are not returned on time, additional fees are incurred. By utilizing our container freight station, these fees can be easily avoided.

  • Expert Handling of Your Cargo by the CFS Team

    Since transporting palletized cargo in containers would take up too much room, cargo is usually loaded into containers individually or in boxes. This means that when your cargo arrives, it must be unloaded carefully by a team. Our CFS team is experienced at rapidly unloading cargo while doing so with the utmost care to avoid damaging it. We exceed the highest standard for efficiency and reliability, so you can rest assured your cargo is in good hands.

  • Buy Time and Defer Duty Tax

    Your cargo can remain at the container freight station for up to 15 days. This buys additional time to make arrangements for your cargo for the next leg of its journey.

  • Seamless Shipping from the CFS

    By selecting a container freight station that is owned by a trucking company, the next part of the process is seamless. All that is needed to have your shipment head back out for distribution is the proper paperwork from the broker. The trucking company then handles the rest.
