Shipping Options to Puerto Rico

At Honourocean, we offer a range of shipping options to Puerto Rico to meet your needs. Our services include:

  •  LTL (Less-than-Truckload) Shipping: LTL shipping is the most cost-effective option for shipments weighing between 150 and 15,000 pounds. This option allows you to share space in a truck with other shippers, reducing the cost of shipping.
  • Truckload Shipping: If you have a larger shipment weighing over 15,000 pounds, truckload shipping may be the best option. This option provides the entire truck, ensuring your shipment arrives quickly and safely.
  • Air Freight Shipping: Air freight shipping is the best option for time-sensitive shipments. We work with all major airlines to provide Puerto Rico with fast and reliable air freight services.
  • Ocean Freight Shipping: Ocean freight shipping is the most cost-effective option for large shipments that are not time-sensitive. We offer both Full Container Load (FCL) and Less-than-Container Load (LCL) possibilities to meet your needs.

    Roll-On/Roll-Off is the cheapest and safest way to transport vehicles and heavy equipment to Puerto Rico. With RORO, your cargo is simply driven on and off a specific vessel, or towed using a modular transporter. Whatever the type and size of your wheeled or static cargo, we can ship it via RORO to Puerto Rico.

    Breakbulk shipping is the best option when your freight is too large or too heavy to fit into standard containers. Our Project Cargo team possesses the necessary experience to plan every detail proactively whenever you need to ship out-of-gauge cargo that must be loaded individually rather than in containers onto an ocean vessel.

  • When shipping by sea, there are two main transit types: FCL and LCL. FCL is when an entire container is used to ship your products, while LCL is when your products share space with other people’s products in the same container – also known as groupage. If you’re shipping large volumes and can fill a container, it makes sense to choose FCL 
  • Generally speaking, FCL is a better option if you’re shipping a large volume of goods or items that are sensitive to damage (e.g., electronics). LCL is ideal for small shipments or if you’re just getting started with importing from China. It’s also worth noting that LCL rates are calculated per cubic meter, so be sure to factor that into your decision.then LCL shipping (also known as groupage) offers a more economical way to ship smaller quantities that make up less than half of the volume of a full container

What is the Best Way to Ship Freight to Puerto Rico?

If you’re looking for the best way to ship freight to Puerto Rico, it truly depends on what you’re shipping and how quickly you need it there. Air shipping is usually the fastest, but it can be more expensive. On the other hand, ocean shipping may take a bit longer, but it’s often more cost-effective, especially for larger, heavier shipments. Ultimately, the “best” way will depend on your specific needs, and that’s where a freight forwarder like us comes in. We can help you weigh your options and choose the best method for your specific circumstances.

Who Ships Freight to Puerto Rico?

Many companies offer shipping services to Puerto Rico, but not all of them provide the same level of service. As a freight forwarder with 13 years of experience, Shenzhen Honour Ocean Shipping Co., Ltd. provides comprehensive shipping and distribution solutions to Puerto Rico. We cover both air and ocean freight, ensuring your goods reach their destination safely and efficiently.

How Much Does It Cost to Ship to Puerto Rico?

Again, the cost to ship cargo to Puerto Rico can vary widely depending on what you’re shipping and how you’re shipping it. For example, air freight might cost more than sea freight for the same volume of goods due to the faster transit time. The best way to get an accurate estimate is to contact us directly with the details of your shipment. We’re committed to providing transparent pricing and will give you a straightforward quote with no hidden fees.


How long does it take to ship a container to Puerto Rico?

Port-to-port transit time for a container to San Juan, Puerto Rico can take as little as three days from Jacksonville, Florida. From Miami, it usually takes around four days.


We can pick up freight anywhere in the continental U.S. and move it to Puerto Rico for you. Below, you’ll find a few sample transit times to San Juan:

Approximate Transit Time to San Juan

  • Jacksonville, FL –  3 days
  • Miami, FL  – 4 days
  • New York, NY  – 7 days
  • Chicago, IL  – 10 days
  • Los Angeles, CA –  18 days

Keep in mind that transit time is simply the time it takes a boat to go from one port to another. Every steamship line has a cut-off for receiving freight, which is a few days prior to the actual sail date.

Additionally, it can take a few days for freight to be unloaded and delivered after freight is made available at the port.


To get a full picture of how long it will take your container to get to Puerto Rico, you’ll need to add a few days on either end of the transit time.


Reach out to us, and we’ll get you a precise timeline for your shipment.
