USA import and export by sea freight and air freight

USA Transports

Sea & Air

To the United States via sea freight and air freight. With NOSTA, your goods arrive on time and efficiently at your customers on both sides of the Atlantic.

Our Greater Midwest Service brings together the best of sea freight and air freight. This is because it is not just our groupage service between Frankfurt and Chicago, which travels above the clouds for you several times a week. Under this name, we also offer you our own sea freight LCL connection between the US and the important European seaports of Hamburg and Rotterdam for import and export.

On both sides of the Atlantic, our experienced sea and air freight teams are present on site to monitor and handle the transport and complex customs clearance for you. Thanks to our sustainable networks in the USA and Europe, we can also arrange door-to-door transports for you. Furthermore, we are also happy to provide you with value-added services in the field of customs warehouses.

Our focus is on the Midwest of the United States, which is an economic centre of the country. The region is particularly interesting for the mechanical engineering industry with its demand for industrial and agricultural products. Our branch in Chicago operates a local bonded warehouse and offers relevant consulting services.
