Why are sailing options different for U.S. exports?

Sailings out of the U.S. are less frequent and have longer transit times, but it is easier to secure space on an export vessel.

Sailings are often slower out of the U.S. -- the vessels are loading a lot of empty containers by calling multiple ports to maximize the utilization of the vessel. As a result, the sailing schedules for exports from the US are often less frequent with longer transit times. On the bright side, it means that space is easier to secure.

Note: For an LCL shipment, the earliest sailing will likely be 10-14 days after the cargo ready date. It is best to plan ahead!
