Mississauga-based Sea Cargo Air Cargo Logistics Inc (SCACLI) is an international freight forwarder that offers a full range of import and export services for air, sea and rail transportation, including customized turn-key international projects, transborder services for shipments to and from the United States, and complete customs clearance services. SCACLI prides itself on the knowledge and experience of previous cargo projects, allowing the team to quickly identify the most efficient route and service.

Air Cargo

SCACLI Air Service maintains dedicated cargo hubs at all major international gateways. The worldwide network enables SCACLI to negotiate preferential rates with the major airlines to secure space allotments and load guarantees.

From those locations, the company also operates exclusive consolidation services to all destinations, which Canadian businesses can benefit from, in terms of cost savings. By nature, Canadian retailers are large shippers of small shipments. Consolidation allows businesses to purchase quantities that are ideal for their needs, without regard for what quantity is required to fill a container for physical movement. SCACLI can combine several small shipments into full container loads for cost-effective and efficient movement.

Sea Cargo

In addition to freight forwarding and customs brokerage, SCACLI provides ocean logistics and distribution services for both foreign and domestic companies, as well as purchase order management and ancillary freight services. Many of SCACLI’s foreign accounts have found this to be a very cost effective way to distribute their goods to customers in North America without having a physical presence here.

For exporters, SCACLI staff provides ocean freight planning and consultation services, including cost analysis, terms of sale, and letter of credit advice to simplify all financial transactions. The selection of steamship lines, consolidation options, container specifications, packaging requirements and customs classification are additional areas in which SCACLI’s ocean export professionals provide valuable assistance.

SCACLI gives clients the option of less container load (LCL) and full container load (FCL) shipments, reefer loads, heavy loads, roll on/roll off (Ro/Ro) and break-bulk services. In addition, the company also offers specialized ocean services for out-of-gauge and over-size shipments, as well as high security moves.

Specialized attention

SCACLI ensures oversized and difficultto- handle cargo movements receive the customized care and attention required. In fact, they can arrange for exclusive handling of customers’ cargo using specialized equipment and services, as needed. Dedicated attention to a client’s shipment or series of shipments ensures the client will receive prompt and informed responses to all inquiries.

The company is amongst a very small number of Canadian international freight forwarders able to provide these specialized shipping services to expedite international movements of project cargo. This specialized attention comes from the recognition that preparation, careful planning and effective coordination are critical to the success of unusual transport projects. That’s why SCACLI staff works closely with its customers and all parties involved right from origin to destination and all points in between to provide a fully customized end-to-end solution.

In addition to the company’s own capabilities, SCACLI draws on an international network to provide local, on-the-spot expertise and all of the support services needed to meet project cargo objectives regardless of the country involved.
