Puerto Rico

NEMF World Transport (NEWT©) is a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), which has been serving Puerto Rico since 1989. NEWT© has the best combination of service performance alternatives, pricing flexibility and bilingual customer service in the market. We offer door-to-door LTL/LCL weekly service between the US, Canada and Puerto Rico through the ports of Elizabeth NJ and San Juan PR. All shipments picked up by our network of 35 terminals in the Northeast US and Canada are transported on an overnight/2nd day basis to our 110 door consolidation facility located within the Port of Elizabeth. With nationwide 20′, 40′, 45′ and 53′ container-load service over the ports of Elizabeth and Pennsauken NJ, Jacksonville FL, and San Juan PR, the shipments are containerized and moved via vessel or barge service to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The NEMF World Transport team of operations and bilingual administrative personnel in Elizabeth and Guaynabo are exclusively dedicated to the Puerto Rico operation. This allows the team to focus on your needs from the initial pick-up call to delivery. Administrative personnel are well-trained to provide a simplified accurate freight bill, electronic SED completion, advanced shipment notification, electronic tax clearance services and personalized shipment tracing and reporting. The dedicated operations team is well-trained in container loading. You can be assured that your shipments are handled with care through the use of air bags, pallet racks, load bars, and well-constructed load plans.

NEWT© has an exclusive arrangement with DM Express in Puerto Rico, who manages container drayage, unloading, pick-up/delivery service and warehousing. DM is able to provide constant, focused attention to the needs of our customers. The 45,000 square foot facility located in close proximity to the San Juan port allows for immediate container pickup upon availability and unloading on a same day basis.
