Household Goods

Pack Locally, Ship Globally™ 

"GTS is so efficient.  All of the things that GTS does are the things I would tell other forwarders to do."  - L.W, Director of Operations

A year after inception, GTS opened its Household Goods Service, providing airfreight service to US government accounts that managed separate vendors for packing, airfreight, and destination services.  Propelled by our success in delivering timely and accurate information to these agencies, GTS adapted its airfreight program to the commercial and military international moving industry, and soon a majority of US based members of the Household Goods Forwarders Association of America (HHGFAA) followed as clients.  The GTS Group has expanded our offerings to include export ocean freight, import movements, and third country assignments. Today, we are a proud “total freight service to the industry” through our role as a neutral, committed partner to the success of our growing industry clientele.

We invite those shipping household goods to experience the GTS difference, and to “pack locally, ship globally.”  We challenge ourselves daily to provide the very best shipment management services and special programs possible, helping our customers compete, innovate, and succeed within their own markets.  As your partner in household goods freight, we will not only support your current moves, but also help you expand your international business. GTS pursues this partnership through our basic approach to the HHG industry:
