When it comes to shipping cargo to any destination most people will undoubtedly say they look for a carrier that is safe, fast and reliable. Econcaribe meets all those standards and more. The company has been serving customers since 1968 and has a proven track record of excellent service.
“We have been around for a long time,” said Gordon Berment, the director and manager of the company’s New York terminal. “We have 40 years of experience. Our services are second to none. Our staff has an intimate understanding of the community and what it expects from us. People trust us.”
Econocaribe’s New York terminal sends thousands of shipments every month to the West Indies, Central and South America, and other destinations primarily by sea, but it can also provide access to air transportation if required.
Some customers ship goods such as food, clothing, computers or appliances back to their families in their native countries while others use the services as part of their bulk trading business, sending products such as shoes, hair products and computer supplies.
But whatever the items, customers seem pleased with the shipping provided by Econocaribe. “They say, ‘Thank you for picking up on time.’ ‘Oh, you’re so reliable.’ ‘It got there safe with no damage,’” recalled Berment.
The company also takes a lot of the guesswork and inconvenience out of shipping. Workers will come to your door to pick up cargo anywhere in the tri-state area, provide you with boxes and barrels and even help pack your goods safely for travel.
“This is a company of integrity,” Berment said. “We are reliable, trustworthy professionals.”
To ensure fast shipping, Berment recommends calling ahead to find out the price, which is determined by weight and measurement as well as the loading date schedule. It is best to have the cargo picked up two days before it is scheduled to be shipped.
