    I need to ship some heavy items to the N.E. coast of the USA, New York / New Jersey area. They'll take up about 5 feet of a container

    Does anyone work with shipping lines or container companies or ship containers to the USA themselves who could guide me on contacts, prices, rules etc?

    TIA.

    You need a groupage container rate. I mainly deal in full loads which are a lot less hassle as you don't need logistics for stuffing and devanning the units etc.

    However try UPS Supply Chain Solutions. This is who I use to bring in parts from the far east in groupage orders.

    Many of these companies will deal business to business only. They only deal with me because I have a warehouse and forklift facilities. So you may have to make your own arrangements for the goods to get to port.
