Full Container Load (FCL) Shipments

Air freight to Guam is one of the fastest ways to get items to Guam. It can also be one of the most expensive. However, air freight is offered at different service levels, which vary in pricing and speed. Learn more about sending air freight to Guam.

Yes. All shipments that arrive on Guam must clear through the Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency (CQA), and they must be accompanied by the correct documentation.

When you ship with Approved, we’ll help you put together the right paperwork to clear customs quickly and efficiently.

Additionally, should you encounter any challenges, our on-the-ground team in Guam can assist with clearance. We also operate a Container Freight Station (CFS), where your shipment can be unpacked and held in a secure area for inspection, if needed.

An asset-based freight forwarder is one that owns its warehouses, fleets, and delivery teams.

In contrast, some shipping companies contract out deliveries to other providers to complete final delivery.

What does working with an asset-based freight forwarder on Guam mean for you?

  • We can offer you priority scheduling, since we’re fully in control of our delivery schedules. In contrast, when forwarders use outside companies for delivery, they may have to compromise when it comes to delivery schedules. Our asset-based approach means our customers get first pick when it comes to scheduling.
  • Additionally, being an asset-based forwarder allows us to deliver a seamless freight experience from start to finish. You’ll get the same level of customer service throughout your entire project, and you’ll deal with one point of contact from start to finish. You’ll never wonder who to call if you need an update, and we’ll maintain strict ownership of your freight through final delivery.
Your final cost for your Guam freight will depend on a few factors:

  • What you’re shipping (including its weight, measurements, and freight class)
  • Where you want to ship it from (the origin)
  • Where you want to ship it to (the destination)

Once we have all this information, we can determine the right shipping mode—and what kind of shipping rate to Guam you can expect. Then, we’ll put together a comprehensive quote so you’ll understand exactly what it will cost to ship your freight to Guam.

Since Guam is a U.S. territory, shipments between the 50 U.S. states and Guam are not technically considered international. However, all shipments to Guam must clear through Guam’s Customs and Quarantine Agency (CQA). As a result, these shipments need proper documentation, similar to what you’d need if your freight were crossing an international border.

Note: Although shipments from Guam to the U.S. are also not technically considered international, your shipment will still have to clear U.S. customs at the first point of entry.

Yes, all shipments arriving to Guam must be cleared by Guam’s Customs and Quarantine Agency (CQA). When you’re shipping freight to Guam, Approved can help you prepare the correct paperwork you’ll need for customs clearance.

Additionally, if you need assistance clearing customs—or if your container is selected for inspection—our sister company, DeWitt Guam, can assist. They operate a Container Freight Station (CFS) on Guam, where your container can be securely unloaded for inspection. In other words, if you experience any challenges with Guam customs, we have on-the-ground resources to assist.

Approved offers weekly sails to Guam. In order to guarantee your freight is loaded on the next departure, your freight must be at our City of Industry, CA terminal no later than 12:00 noon (PST) the Friday before the sailing.


For air freight shipments, the most urgent ones can arrive in as little as two to four days. For ocean freight shipments, you’re likely looking at around three weeks.

In terms of air freight, if you’re willing to wait a little longer, choosing deferred air freight or a lower service level can be more cost-effective, although it will extend your transit time.

Ocean freight will be significantly cheaper shipping option, but it will also be slower. Port-to-port transit time to Guam from the West Coast is 14 days. Our cut-off time is the Friday before the sail, so that adds a few more days. Additionally, it will take at least 48 hours for the container to be offloaded, cleared through customs, and made available for delivery or will call.

If you’re shipping cargo, ocean freight will almost always be your cheapest option.

If you’re shipping a small parcel, the shipping price will depend on the dimensions, weight, and delivery speed of your package.

USPS, UPS, FedEx, and DHL all ship small parcels to Guam. If you want to find the absolute cheapest option, your best bet is to price out your package with all four.
