Ocean vessels operate on regularly schedule routes; however, many destinations are not on regularly scheduled routes. Typically, these ocean vessels are smaller and more specialized to handle out-of-gauge cargo. Crown has in depth knowledge and global availability of such charters.
Crown offers TL (truckload) and LTL (less-than-truckload) services. With our experience and vast network, Crown is able to provide dedicated fleets, rail service and other client specific/project specific trucking services. In the U.S. and in Europe, knowledge of oversized and out of gauge trucking permitting procedures and transit regulations are critical to on time performance. Overseas, especially to developing country project sites, the specialized trucking equipment required for transit of heavy and out of gauge cargo can be scarce. Intimate knowledge of specialized trucking capabilities is another aspect of Crown services our clients depend on.
