Additional World Cargo Services

When your shipment leaves your hands, it doesn’t mean it should remain on your mind.

While our services, handling and care are second to none, accidents out of our control do happen. Take the stress and worry out of the equation with our easy-to-use and full coverage freight insurance. World Cargo offers full coverage for replacement or actual cash value with our highly recommended freight forwarder insurance. Any item at any amount can be covered and the insurance value is determined by you, the shipper or consignee.

We hope for the best, but advise planning for the worst. Whether it be priceless art, your car, TV, computer or anything else, our top level service and competitive insurance rates will allow you breath easy and ensure your assets are protected.

Let’s face it, no one really likes filling out paperwork.

When it comes to the confusing world of customs clearance, World Cargo has a global network of agents. Rest easy as we help you with all of the required documentation to make sure you cargo is cleared to its final destination. We’ll ensure all documents are correctly completed and submitted and take care of all coordination to have your goods cleared.

Once your shipment has cleared customs, we can arrange it so that any appointed consignee can pick the goods up. Or, if you’d like, we can arrange to have the items delivered to a specific location for you.

We all love opening packages, but who really likes wrapping them?

If you have items that require special packing, wrapping or crating, World Cargo is your solution. We possess all of the necessary equipment to take care of any packing or crating request, including stamped pressure treated lumber for international travel. With panel saws, cut-off saws, wall jigs and pneumatic nail guns along with 40,000 lb forklifts, we will ensure your items are packed properly, no matter what the size.

We pride ourselves on being industry leaders for our expertise in packing items with care; blocking and bracing ocean freight containers or crafting custom crates for international air travel. No matter what the item, or where it’s travelling to, trust World Cargo will get it there right.

You don’t have to be a warehouse just to warehouse.

If you’ve got cargo coming in or going out, but don’t want to become a warehouse, consider using our 20,000 sq ft bonded warehouse located in the Vancouver International Airport cargo facility. And, it’s not only a place to store your goods, but you are able to customize shipments by adding or subtracting goods from your over all stock as you please. We can also arrange for you to drop your goods off and package and prepare shipments as well.

Whether it be short term or long term, standard or temperature controlled our facility is fully equipped. The flexibility of time, packaging and transferring allows you the peace of mind to know your shipment is safe and ready to go at your request.
