Container Freight Stations and Warehousing

United Motor Freight’s customs bonded warehouse serves our international shipping customers with inbound and outbound cargoes ranging from LTL to multiple truckloads.

Making us unique among hauling companies in Washington, we own and operate two U.S. bonded container freight facilities – one in Seattle and one in Tacoma – each with several acres of outdoor and under cover space and with all the specialized equipment needed for heavy lift and rigging, unloading, trans-loading, crating, and packing any cargo you can imagine.

At United Motor Freight, we have 30 years of experience managing cargo for import and export.

Communication is extremely important to me. I need to be able to plan my receipts in order to maximize my production. The team at UMF does a great job of keeping me informed and communicating promptly. Their follow through and timeliness is also great and helps my company immensely. I receive 3-5 containers a week in a 45K sq. ft. warehouse, some are floor stacked and some are not. Scheduling is key to my success and I really appreciate the flexibility and great customer service that UMF provides!
