Global Assembly and Distribution

Global Assembly via Ocean Vessel*

As a shipping company that manages freight and cargo across the nation and the globe, Old Dominion Freight Line knows how important it is to provide value-added services to our domestic and global freight shipping products. One-such service, our Global Assembly and Distribution (via ocean vessel) provides assembly for your product to meet your global needs. Just request that your vendors ship your LTL shipments to an ODFL facility serving the designated port city of exit. Old Dominion will cross dock the LTL shipments onto an ocean container unit for the steamship line of your choice. Once the container is full, and the load is complete, it is manifested to the designation of choice. Old Dominion then provides the container drayage service to the port. Should distribution be needed at the destination, Old Dominion will work with the WCL (World Confederation of Labor) partner. Old Dominion can provide you with OS&D information, as well as timely track and trace capabilities.
