Shipping line DCL

Direct Container Line, a predecessor company, was founded in August 1978 to service the ocean transportation needs of Australian importers buying food products from US manufacturers. By taking advantage of the transition in shipping to containerization, DCL was able to offer smaller US exporters the most cost-effective way to ship their goods to international markets. Initial trade service from the West Coast of the US to Australia/New Zealand rapidly expanded to cover the total US and worldwide markets.

DCL is now the largest non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), according to figures published in the Journal of Commerce.

DCL has received the President's "E" Award for Excellence in Exporting, in honor of significant contributions to US export efforts. We have also received the "E Star" award for continued leadership in promoting US exports to worldwide markets.

DCL, through its affiliation with NACA Logistics (USA) Inc. provides a network of offices and receiving terminals across the United States and Canada with branches or subsidiaries in 86 countries around the world. NACA's corporate office is located at 857 E. 230th Street, Carson, CA 90745. The total number of employees is over 500, with approximately 350 based in the United Sates.
