Current freight rate trends which are determined by the economy, will directly affect how much you pay to get your consignment from the origin port to its destination. In fact, earlier in 2016, the world saw ocean freight rate indexes reach exceptional lows. When it comes to ocean freight rates, the carrier you use and the volume that you are shipping will come into play. At USSA we provide our members with access to the best industry rates and this is made possible by the combining of our member’s shipping volumes. Our shipping association is dedicated to keeping up to date with the latest freight rate trends by paying close attention to world-wide economics and how the fluctuations over the weeks and months can impact on the type of shipping service that you receive and how much it affects your bottom line.
At USSA we focus on providing our shipping association members with the type of ocean freight management service that’s all encompassing. That means that you will find everything under one roof and we will do everything we can to get you the best rates and minimal risk! We have great faith in our product and this is evident in our 25 years of success in the industry.
At USSA we offer our clients access to a variety of some of the lowest freight rates in the industry. Our long term relationships with carriers and our industry expertise along with our member’s combined volumes make it possible for us to present our clients with freight rates that are in line with latest trends, but in the favour of our clients.

I like the fact that USSA partnered with GT Nexus. With this tool I can always see exactly what my freight rates are.
Amcol International was looking for the ability to achieve the competitive rates that higher volume shippers are able to obtain. We found this with USSA. Through our membership we have not only achieved the improved rates, but we now have the ability to access a broader group of carriers, giving us security in our shipping options.
Through membership in the USSA we have gained more competitive rates and a reliable network of other exporters. Joining the USSA has been a positive experience with great results.
The ability to leverage ocean logistics services has been a very positive tool in reducing our overall spend, i.e. such as gaining exposure to various IT and systems solutions and ultimately entering into an IT solution (GT Nexus) at a significantly discounted cost. The ability to openly communicate and bench-marking of services/rates with a group of shippers is a very positive tool.
