ArcBest container shipping services

Full-Container-Load (FCL)

ArcBest International offers access to every major seaport through our strategic partnerships with large ocean carriers. As a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), we provide the resources you need to seamlessly move large shipments or exclusive use containers around the globe. Take advantage of competitive pricing, full shipment visibility and decades of transportation experience for every full container shipment in your supply chain.

Less-Than-Container-Load (LCL)

By combining ArcBest international container shipping services with the efficient less-than-truckload (LTL) network of our carrier ABF Freight®, you’ll experience faster-than-average transit times to virtually anywhere in the U.S. Most cargo shippers take time to sort LCL shipments at container freight stations upon arrival at the port, then reconsolidate freight traveling in the same direction. ArcBest places your LCL shipment straight into the ABF LTL network from our port in Long Beach, California — reducing transit times up to 20 percent.

Intermodal Container Shipping

Maximize efficiency for long-haul freight by utilizing ArcBest intermodal shipping services. Rail transportation offers fast transit times at traditionally lower rates, giving you a streamlined shipping solution that also reduces your carbon footprint.

Portable Moving and Storage

We also offer cargo containers designed for moving household goods across the country through U-Pack®, a service of ArcBest. With a service area that spans the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, U-Pack offers a unique way to move your belongings safely and securely, at rates that compare to truck rental.
