GO Shipping Line was established to resolve the current issues that shippers have with high freight costs. We will consistently sail at a speed of 25 knots, the highest safe speed for modern ocean bound freighters. Our “short-haul” service routes ensure that perishable cargo will be received within a transit time of 12-15 days between our International Pacific West Coast ports. Our fleet currently consists of two (2) Panamax class container ships, the M/V GO America and the M/V GO Asia will sail in weekly rotation originating in Port Manzanillo, Mexico located in the State of Michoacan, the home of many large agricultural producers. This first leg of the rotation we travel four (4) days to Port of Hueneme, CA, USA which is located 62 miles north of the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. This port area is home to a giant agricultural community of domestic and imported fruits and vegetables. From here, we set sail for Port of Vancouver, Fraser-Surrey, BC, Canada located on the Fraser River just south of the Port of Vancouver, BC arriving in just three (3) days. This port is located near the large agricultural coastal areas of Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. Our bow turns southbound and heads toward the Port of Stockton, CA, USA an inland port located 75miles east from the Port of Oakland on the San Joaquin River. This inland port connects directly to the Central Valley and Coastal Growing Regions of California. The final leg of the rotation takes us back home to the Port of Manzanillo.in 5 days. It is here we will be able to cross-dock South American perishables destined to for export to both the USA and Canada.
On the West Coast of North America, there are only a few cool ports specializing in cold chain solutions. Most such operations are privately held by major fruit companies solely servicing their own supply chains. Our terminal partners at each port provide a list of logistics services such as door to door delivery within a 100 mile radius for the port on our own 40’High Cube Dry or Refrigerated containers. If freight consolidation, inspection and re-packing services are needed, our cold-chain compliant service providers will ensure care and custody of your cargo quality to your end customer. The majority of shippers that ship via reefer containers will benefit greatly with our newly established service. We will be serving industries that ship products such as bananas, exotic fruits (pineapple, kiwi, avocado, etc.), berries, fish, seafood, meat, deciduous (apples, pears), citrus, dairy, juices, frozen concentrates, processed foods and other products (mainly frozen potatoes and vegetables).
With a smaller vessel, Great Ocean is able to call smaller ports and be more flexible. Our ship is able to get quickly in and out and onto the next destination. Not only will Great Ocean Shipping Line new routes create an more efficient way to transport but will utilize local and rural ports facilities that are currently not fully utilized.
We partnered with local trucking companies and offer door to door service for your containers.
Working with rural and smaller ports along the Pacific Coast Rim, Great Ocean will be utilizing port faculties that many mega ships can not call.
