LCL (Less than container load)

PAS is a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC) registered and bonded with the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC).

This NVOCC status requires PAS to operate with full compliance with all the regulations of a Common Carrier – equal to that of the Steamship Vessel operators in the trade.

However, PAS main focus and business model has been geared to offer cargo consolidation services. So we handle mainly the LCL shipments for customers. We can combine shipments from various suppliers into one Bill of Lading or ship separately as the customer prefers.

PAS is not tied into the fixed schedule of a single Vessel operation and can offer its customers multiple options and fastest transit employing the most effective Shipping Line serving a particular Trade lane. In fact, combining the schedules of various Carriers plying the Caribbean region, we do offer multiple sailings a week to some destinations, a significant value-add for customers.

PAS handles its consolidation services within 85,000 square foot racked warehouse at its main Miami gateway location with 11 docks doors and ramp access. Our facility has security guard control and 24 hour surveillance.

Outside of Miami gateway, PAS has strategic offices in Los Angeles, New York and Canada where we can offer similar consolidation services as well as trucking into the Miami gateway as optimal for the customer.

Our fully computerized logistics and use of scanning technology provides speed and accuracy of cargo handling and processing as well as real time tracking for our customers.

PAS maintain a direct communication and relationship with its customers, providing up to date information on shipments from booking; pick up, receiving, liaison for shipping instructions and shipping to destination. This allows customers direct participation in the logistics process and visibility of the status of their shipments in process at all times.

We pride ourselves on fast, accurate handling of our customers’ shipments and cost beneficial shipping for our customers.
