Indpendent Container Line

Independent Container Line was founded in July 1985 connecting the ports of Richmond, Virginia and Chester, Pennsylvania in the USA with the port of Antwerp in Belgium.

Initially the service was fortnightly. During a prolonged period of sustainable growth additional tonnage was added resulting in a fixed day weekly service which is the backbone of the service integrity today. Over time the service evolved and added the port of Liverpool to the schedule and subsequently replaced Richmond with Wilmington NC.

Independent Container Line is a truly independent, privately owned company which is control of its own destiny and this is at the heart of the company's philosophy. The capacity of each vessel is exclusively dedicated to ICL's customers and nothing is sacrificed to slot swaps or vessel sharing partners. The Line's ability to negotiate specific service agreements is in its own hands obviating the need for conference memberships or cooperation with Allicances.

The schedules unique U.S. ports provide amazing turnaround times unhindered by congestion. All deliveries in the U.S. are done on an "all motor" basis.

ICL's strategic advantage its focus on its core market - a niche specialist rather than a global approach. Customers deal with local well-trained staff who provide first class customer service and documentation that is produced locally - no outsourcing to places "far afield". The Lines' commitment to Schedule Integrity has resulted in it winning the Lloyd's of London "Schedule Reliability Award" for the North Atlantic more often than any other carrier in the last ten years. ICL offers cargo tracking facilities on-line and is C-TPAT and ISPS Certified.

Another feature of ICL's service is an efficient and competitive LCL service both East and Westbound.

ICL provides customers with an extremely reliable, efficient, safe and secure service on the North Atlantic delivered by people with Pride, Passion and a Commitment to Excellence.
