Freight that arrives after 12:00 noon on Friday and into Monday may sail on Wednesday based on space availability and loading compatibility.

If you have freight arriving after the cutoff that is very urgent, please contact our customer support team at 800-533-4826 to notify them and they will do their best to accommodate. Please be prepared with as much detail on the freight arriving as possible so we can reserve enough space.
