CFR Rinkens, a freight forwarder based in Los Angeles, California, has been leading an accelerating trend in containerised car transport in recent years. Using an innovative racking system, CFR has been able to safely stack up to five cars per 40-foot container. In North American intermodal rail operations, the number is even higher with up to seven cars per 53-foot container. Being able to maximise container utilisation reduces shipping cost per unit considerably, and providing fully enclosed door-to-door intermodal solutions produces very low damage ratios. While known primarily for its expertise in classic car and finished vehicle transport services, CFR also has vast experience in handling commercial freight, household goods and complex projects, including oversized and break-bulk cargo. CFR has strategic offices and agents around North and Latin America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. CFR recently appeared on Inc 5000’s prestigious list of America’s fastest growing private companies.
