U.S Port Services announces the addition of a New Heavy Lift Forklift Truck, the Linde HT160 with 35,000 lbs. lift capacity for heavy and out-of-gauge cargo to our fleet. We can handle Project Cargo for cross docking, transloading, container drayage, truck brokerage and warehouse storage/distribution. Our customer service and warehousing teams will handle your shipments in a safe and secure manner.


Customer Demands

We pride ourselves on responding to customer demands. Each customer has their own unique requirements and we make it a priority to ensure they receive the services that fit them the best. As a result, we have acquired our new Linde HT1606 Heavy Lift Forklift Truck with a 35,000 lbs. lift capacity. We have also improved our lift capacity by an additional 100,000 Ibs. with our heavy lift crane.


Customer Benefits

Project Cargo requires highly specialized equipment and an experienced team to ensure the secure storage and timely delivery of the valuable assets. By acquiring this new Heavy Lift Forklift Truck U.S. Port Services invested in the heavy cargo transportation needed to exceed our customers’ needs. We now handle any logistics solution from standard cargo transportation to Project Cargo with ease. When you Contact U.S. Port Services, you are connecting with over 30 years of logistics experience and a wide Logistics Network to ensure your freight is properly stored, accounted, and distributed.


Out Of Gauge Cargo (O.O.G.) Cargo

We are not only capable of storing your Project Cargo, but we can also transport your O.O.G. Cargo, as well. If your cargo exceeds the internal container dimensions and has to be loaded on an open or flat top container then, you have O.O.G. Cargo. You invest a great deal in your heavy cargo and we are here to ensure the safety of your investment while in our care. From acceptance to delivery our experienced professionals handle your Project Cargo in a safe secure manner so you longer have to worry about your freight being delivered in the same condition you shipped it.


Putting our heavy lift capacity to the test during times of need.

Hurricane Irma hit Florida leaving people and businesses in devastation. We used our new heavy lift equipment to help our customers in need. Some Freight Forwarders needed help storing large outdoor generators during the aftermath of Irma, as a result, U.S. Port Services provided necessary aide with our heavy lift capacity equipment and warehousing facility. It takes an experienced team and hardy equipment to store heavy outdoor generators and we were there to get the job done.


Industry Demands

According to The Port of Virginia®, “Port’s October Volumes Break All-Time Record; Truck, Rail and Barge Cargo Up as Expansion Work Progresses”

The Port of Virginia® said, “The Port of Virginia® moved 265,490 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) in October, which is a growth of more than 11 percent – for containers as well — when compared with the same month last year and an all-time record for the amount of cargo handled in a single month.”

U.S. Port Services wanted to be prepared for this expansion and increased volume so we made the investment in our equipment at the right time and our convenient Warehousing Services in Norfolk, VA, and our Portsmouth, VA Headquarters are also prepared for the continued increase in imports coming to Virginia.

Our agile business model is made to fit the increasing demands of the logistics industry. We have 220,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space available in Norfolk Virginia, plus an additional 130,000 sq. ft. in Savannah, Georgia.
