MTA Lines Company History

Established in 1980 as a licensed Freight Forwarder and NVOCC, Midwest Transatlantic Lines, LLC has experienced rapid growth within the industry. Answering the demands of our customers, we have expanded our services to accommodate a broader scope of clients. As Customhouse Brokers, Iata Agents, Transportation Consultants, and as a Bonded Container Freight Station, we are capable of fulfilling all international requirements of our customers.

In 1993, Midwest Transatlantic Lines, LLC expanded by building a 50,000 square foot facility that houses our offices and warehouse. This new modern facility enables us to provide a variety of freight services for our customers.. From the smallest most fragile, to oversized and hazardous cargo, our experienced staff accommodates customers' needs by providing customized crating and/or packing on site.

To ensure proper stowage and distribution of weight for on-carriage by land or sea, we offer loading, blocking and bracing of your freight by our trained personnel. The same attention to detail continues in the unloading/stripping of imported cargoes as well. Certified in dealing with Hazardous Materials, our strict adherence to IMCO standards and regulations assures proper compliance with all Dangerous Goods guidelines.

A.B.I. Link (Automated Broker Interface) with U.S. Customs accelerates the documentation process and allows for quicker release and delivery of your cargo. An experienced import staff works diligently to avoid the difficulties and delays often associated with the importation of freight. Providing Air and/or Ocean Import Consolidation services allows customers greater control and a cost efficient method of shipping, allowing maximum flexibility of their cargo.
