Los Angeles Heavy Weight Corridor


For our customers who ship to the Port of Los Angeles and Long Beach, we have a warehouse strategically located inside the Heavy Weight Corridor. From our location in Los Angeles, we are able to import and export overweight containers directly to and from the terminals. Once at our warehouse, we can legalize our customers containers before delivering to the final destination or maximize the container for export.
