Air and ocean consolidation bring efficiencies and savings

Even with complex global freight movements, you can boost efficiency with air and ocean consolidation. Our regular sailing schedules offer coverage throughout Europe. We pick up your freight, bring it to a warehouse and load it, using proper blocking and bracing to help minimize damage.

“C.H. Robinson’s got a good network of people. They’re responsive and can handle planning, preparation, even booking our shipments.”

-James Addison, president of Blue Ridge Product Solutions

Warehousing when and where you need it

At our warehouse, we can hold your freight in Europe without clearing customs or paying duties and VAT until you are ready to distribute the cargo, saving you money. Using our door to door shipping service, you can limit liability of freight handoffs and bond switching.

Simplify the customs clearance process

Remove the obstacles for your imports and exports by working exclusively with our customs clearance experts. We help you uncover compliance issues so you can pay the appropriate tariffs and duties.

Protect your goods with cargo insurance

C.H. Robinson All-Risk Cargo insurance provides cover for all your standard commodities against financial exposure, physical loss or damage while your goods are in transit. Our insurance expert will guide through the process of insuring your goods and with any kind of claims.
