Chile Container Shipping Services

Shipping containerized cargo to Chile typically involves two or more modes of transportation. Along with ocean freight forwarding, you will need carriers to move your container to the port of loading in your country of export, and from the port of discharge to its destination in Chile.

That’s why we offer integrated ocean and road freight solutions for both LCL and FCL freight to Chile. Instead of dealing with multiple carriers or forwarders, you can arrange and manage all transportation for your container via a single point of contact.


Ocean Freight

Choose from our less-than-container-load (LCL) or full container load (FCL) ocean freight services to move your goods to key ports in Chile. For more details, navigate to our FCL and LCL service pages.


Road Freight

We’ve developed our range of road freight services to integrate with our ocean freight forwarding and solve any domestic or international shipping problem. Access container drayage, LTL, and FTL road haulage for complete door-to-door shipping, or as standalone services in Chile, or in your country of export.


Container Shipping to Chile for Specific Industries

Our freight forwarding experts help customers in a range of industries requiring specialized shipping and cargo management, including the following five sectors:

Ocean Freight to Chile

When you choose Interworld Freight for less-than-container-load (LCL) or full-container-load (FCL) shipping to Chile, you’re assured of all the benefits of ocean freight managed by a freight-forwarding leader.

We can deliver you a prompt, competitive quote for shipping your FCL or LCL freight on request, provide integrated logistics services to satisfy shipping requirements, coordinate transportation handovers, and ensure you have real-time visibility of your shipment’s progress throughout.

Choose LCL shipping if your consignment’s volume is less than 15 cubic meters (five to six pallets). We’ll consolidate your freight with other shippers’ consignments to fill a container, while you pay only for the space your freight occupies.

For larger consignments, it’s often more cost-effective to use our FCL service. FCL is also a good idea if you want to avoid the risks of consolidation, such as when issues with another shipper’s goods create a delay in container delivery.
