By containerizing the goods right at the loading home, CapRelo maintains our “handle it once” goal of service for our clients, significantly reducing claims for loss and damage.
Transportation of the containers between cities, states, and countries is managed and tracked just as simply as your online purchases, with updates pushed to your mobile service or your email, based on personal preference.
