Individualized Planning is the Key.
Every move is unique — and moving commercial goods, equipment, assets, or a household overseas or across international borders presents a special set of challenges. Central Transportation Services has 85 years of experience and success in meeting those challenges.
It all begins with an
individualized plan that takes into account every detail of the move you are handling, and evaluates all of the options for packaging and transportation. We focus on achieving one specific goal: safe delivery of the things that are important to you and your customer to the final destination – wherever that might be – on budget, on time, and by whatever means necessary.
Go anywhere in the world. We have facilities in Austin, El Paso, Killeen, San Antonio, and Waco – and a network of local agents and service partners that literally spans the globe. Plus, we have key facilities strategically positioned near major U.S. seaports and airports.
We have the credentials. Our own freight forwarding division, Deseret Forwarding International, is a FMC/ICC licensed international air and sea freight forwarder, as well as a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC). We are also proud to be DOD-approved international movers for thousands of dedicated U.S. military families.
We have the equipment. All of our facilities have expert crating and containerization capabilities, as well as special vans and equipment for handling household goods as well as heavy cargo and sensitive electronics.
We have a time-tested process that works. Our decades of import/export experience ensure confidence and clarity for you and your customer. We use proven shipping processes every step of the way: from planning to documentation, from packaging to crating, from the first day of the assignment to the last detail of delivery.
