Freight Management: Services Paired with Beneficial Cargo Owner (BCO) Rates.
One of the most efficient ways to get consistent carrier service is by leveraging industry relationships with the steamship lines to seek to get the most competitive Beneficial Cargo Owner (BCO) rates. Along with our innovative solutions to managing your freight, additional advantages to signing a BCO Contract include:
- Significant savings in your Ocean Freight
- Preferential treatment by the Steamship lines – reducing the chances of getting bumped and rolled
- Traditional freight forwarding services with our solid management and increased visibility of your freight at all times.
Under this program, we have an open book policy which allows you to view all of your rates on both sides of the ocean. By utilizing your direct contracts with J.M. Rodgers’ service, your supply chain will be extremely well run.
