We handle every step of the process, including ABOL‘s (Air Bills of Lading), tracking, and logistics from final destination.

Our global network, as well as our domestic knowledge and expertise, allow us to continually respond to customers’ logistics needs.

Missionary Expediters offers inland freight from your door or warehouse to the port of departure. This can involve domestic truck services (including Van, Flatbed, Step-decks, Low-boys, Overweight, Over-dimensional) or intermodal rail transportation. We have access to all the major rail lines and their services, which allows us to offer clients the ability to move their freight door-to-door.

We understand that each shipment is different. That’s why we tailor our services for each delivery based on urgency and handling, with both cost and transit time in mind for optimal results. Even though we move cargo and products to destinations all over the world, we still know how to make customers feel at home with our friendly, knowledgeable employees, who care for your relief cargo as if it were our own.

Missionary Expediters offers complete warehousing and distribution services. We also provide our clients with the option of inventory management and automated, or personalized, updates. Our climate controlled, fully weatherproof 20,000+ sq. ft. warehouse is located in New Orleans, LA, which allows us to serve all ports in the U.S. including New York/New Jersey, Houston, the Gulf Coast, and other East or West Coast locations. We have relationships with state-of-the-art storage facilities, both in the U.S. and worldwide.

Depending on your needs, we can assist you with consolidating, deconsolidating, transloading, storing, packing and crating your shipment. We also have a private truck fleet which can get your cargo to port on time and under budget!

At Missionary Expediters, we consider ourselves a technology company tackling the challenges of the 21st century. That is why we offer both e-mail and on demand access to status updates, online tracking, online booking, documentation through our MX ProjectWeb platform.
