As a leader in your industry, you know that growth requires innovation. We apply an entrepreneurial mindset, out-of-the-box thinking, and a relentless focus on customer service to refining the supply chain process. By looking at shipping with a new perspective, we can both efficiently transport containers from one place to another and improve the lives of our clients, employees, and the world around us.
Why not hand off project logistics to the people who actually enjoy it? It would be our pleasure to safely see your products through to arrival. And while you can rely on us for one part of the process, we excel at managing every aspect so that you don’t have to. From consulting to planning to preparation to delivery, we are a one-stop shop for your logistics and supply chain needs.
The needs of a non-profit are different than the needs of a traditional company. We pride ourselves on not only understanding how both operate, but how each has its own rules and regulations as well. We have worked with non-profit organizations of all shapes and sizes, and would love the opportunity to serve you. We recognize that you aren’t just shipping products—you’re shipping hope.
We are highly experienced at international shipping, and stay current on the latest opportunities and issues in regions like Africa, Middle East, South America and Asia.
Need to get your products there in a hurry? Some third-party logistics companies may shy away from the complexity that comes from urgency, but we see it as a new and exciting problem to solve. We can take whatever project is causing you stress and anxiety, and relieve the pressure quickly.
We have partnered with Carbonfund to help us fight against climate change, and your organization can be a part of protecting the planet.

In fact, many of our team members bring exceptional skill sets from other industries. This means that you not only get outstanding logistics services, but creative solutions to your toughest problems. What challenges can we help you overcome?

Our strong supplier network throughout North America and Europe provides you with fast and cost-effective options to move products domestically and internationally by rail. Additionally, given the fact that we have offices across the US and in Mexico, our local presence is another benefit we can offer to you.

Vector has access to over 1,000 warehouses across North America, providing you with a variety of climate controlled storage solutions. If part of your product’s safe and secure delivery also includes storage, we have you covered.
Losses happen. No matter how robust your loss prevention strategy may be, it is reported that 30% of all freight damage in transit is unavoidable and most losses occur on the way to or from the ports. Furthermore, the FBI estimates that up to $30 billion in cargo theft occurs every year. All these causes of loss and much more are fully covered in our cargo insurance coverage.
