What is a Container Freight Station (CFS)?
A Container Freight Station (CFS) is a facility located near a port, ocean or an airport. Consolidation and deconsolidation of freight shipments, as well as U.S. Customs Inspections are carried out at the CFS. At the loading port, CFS implies to a location designated by the carriers for obtaining cargo which has to be loaded into the containers by the carrier. Similarly, at the destination or unloading port, CFS implies to a location designated by the carriers of the cargo for unloading of the containerized cargo.
At the destination port, the collection of the cargo from a CFS warehouse requires two types of documents:
- A delivery order, which instructs the warehouse to release the shipments.
- Customs clearance, which shows that a person has been given approval by U.S. Customs, for the goods to be released to them.
- Reduced transportation costs. Our CFS site is located just minutes from the Port of Detroit and local rail-yards, which reduces transportation costs.
- Expedited delivery of goods. U.S. Customs and other governmental regulatory agency offices are within a mile from our CFS inspection facility, which cuts waiting time for inspection and expedites the release of goods.
