Goods manufactured in the Pacific Rim countries must get to U.S. markets and vice versa. Certainly, China is a major trading partner with the U.S. Trade agreements between various countries streamline the trading process. Step back and observe the global shipping lanes. Massive container ships criss-cross the oceans. Indeed, container shipping allows for the transport of trillions of pounds of goods.
Container shipping companies such as Maximum Freight Logistics facilitates the movement of everything from toys to pharmaceuticals. Notably, Maximum Freight Logistics has working relationships with global container ship owners and operators. These shipping containers drive the global economy.

Without these container shipping companies, goods would not reach markets in a timely fashion. Manufacturers and distributors would need to contact different vendors and arrange for ships.

BY THE NUMBERS
Container shipping capacity is measured using the Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit (TEU). As such, the World Bank noted 48.4 million TEUs travels the shipping routes in 2015. Consequently, this number is a few years old so it is probably higher for 2019.
Conversely, the Department of Transportation notes there are 20 shipping container ports that serve the United States. In detail, there are sixteen shipping container ports along the east coast. That said, much of the global container ship traffic comes from Asia across the Pacific Ocean. As a result, these goods arrive at the western ports. The offloaded containers then travel to various points throughout the U.S. The containers travel by truck and freight train. Keep in mind that the heart of the shipping business is the container. They go from ship to truck or train almost automatically. Maximum Freight utilizes this automation to its advantage and passed the benefits to you.
