Cargo handling capabilities include 20 ft. and 40 ft. dry containers, refrigerated containers, flat-racks, open tops, high cubes and other specialized equipment.
In addition to the improvements in equipment, recent scheduling additions and revisions have resulted in significantly faster transit times for COSCO’s customers... as much as 10% faster than just a year ago.
