Common Questions About Guam Freight




As is the case for many other Pacific islands, the final leg of Guam freight arrives via one of two modes: ocean freight or air freight.

Guam ocean freight ships in two different  ways:

  • Less-than-Container (LCL) Shipments/Consolidations
  • Full Container Load (FCL) Shipments

Approved manages via our warehouse in City of Industry, CA. We then move ocean freight to Guam via weekly sails from Southern California.

Air freight is usually reserved for time-sensitive shipments headed for Guam. For more information on sending air cargo to Guam, check out Approved’s air freight services.

Finally, when your cargo makes its way to either a cargo ship or plane, and/or over the road (i.e., via truck). This can be especially true when you’re shipping freight from the U.S. mainland to Guam. Whether you need help coordinating a single freight mode or a shipment that leverages all four of them, we can handle it all for you, including intermodal freight and transshipments.

Several ocean freight carriers stop at the port in Guam. We work closely with a steamship line that offers weekly departures from the West Coast of the U.S. for regular, dependable ocean freight shipments to Guam.  

We use the following types of containers for shipments to Guam:

  • 20’ standard container
  • 40’ standard and high cube containers
  • 45’ high cube container

We also ship flat-rack containers to accommodate large and heavy items, such as machinery and construction materials. Finally, if you have a non-containerized shipment, we can also assist. Just ask, and we’ll help you find a solution.

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.
