NVOCC which is an abbreviation of Non Vessel Owning Common Carrier consists of selling and transporting the containers to the gateway ports. The NVOCC freight forwarders always have a contract with the shipping lines. The contract is the guarantee for shipping a number of units annually. In returns of the shipment, the shipping lines present favourable rates to the agents of NVOCC.
An NVOCC company doesn’t own any asset, still acts as a carrier and issues bill of lading. An NVOCC service need not be a partner with the shippers but shippers need to be partners with the NVOCC company or NVOCC freight forwarder.
The main work of an NVOCC is to book a large quantity of space with the ships and to sell the same to the shippers in the amounts they need. They also integrate small shipments of Less Container Load (LCL) and also issues House Bill of Lading (HBL). An NVOCC acts as a carrier to shipper and shipper to carrier. They are the virtual carriers but hold all the liabilities of a carrier legally.
