Superior Freight-Forwarding and Shipping Capabilities.

We didn’t include the term “Global Solutions” in our name by accident; with a footprint like ours, your vendors and international customers will not have to worry about shipments arriving to their rightful destination at the time they are required. LSGS offers a variety of premium freight forwarding services, including air and ocean freight forwarding. These methods are complemented by a number of additional capabilities, including air charter and consolidation as well as the ability to ship Full Container Loads (FCL) and Less Than Container Loads (LCL).

LSGS specializes in the full spectrum of shipping solutions, including areas of project cargo, warehousing, and domestic transportation. In addition to providing specialized customs brokerage and other value added services, our company is capable of providing cargo management services that span a wide variety of storage capabilities and warehousing solutions, from creating packing lists and crating to the actualized delivery of heavy lift and industrial sized cargo. Our domestic transportation solutions are just as impressive as our international shipping capabilities, with a history of transporting both Full Truckloads and Less Than Truckloads, as well as both dry bulk and liquids.
