Building on our traditional strength in the UK, Europe and Asia, where we are recognized as market leaders, Universal Logistics offers:

  • ocean freight forwarding to and from any location around the world
  • air freight forwarding to and from any location around the world
  • trucking (cross border and domestic) in North America

Our freight forwarding experts will tell you about the many reasons why it pays to take control of your freight, a simple yet important change that can help importers and exporters achieve savings that could add up to six figures.

If you are shipping freight internationally and are interested in cutting freight costs and optimizing transit time, ask about Forward Thinking, the one-of-a-kind approach to international freight forwarding, based on the most thorough assessment of client needs in the business.

Yet another way to save is by routing your U.S. freight via Canada, a proven option under normal circumstances and even more beneficial when operations at U.S. ports are congested by peak season volumes, equipment shortages or labour disruptions.
