NETFRATE LLC is an independent fully licensed Non-Vessel Operated Common Carrier (NVOCC) and Freight Forwarder (FF) as required by U.S. Federal Maritime Commission and based in Miami Florida.
The company was born out of bold and passionate ideas of our founder, Mr. Pavel Trubetskoy, whose logistics career began in 1996 at New Jersey office of San-Francisco, California based Fritz Cos. Inc., one of world’s largest customs brokers and freight forwarders at a time, which was later acquired by Atlanta, Georgia based United Parcel Service (UPS). Mr. Trubetskoy was heavily involved in Fritz’s international, namely Eastern European business handling project and containerized shipments of various commodities including oilfield equipment, machinery, consumables and parts for some large globally recognized customers. Frequent trips to Russia and other republics of the former Soviet Union enabled him to gain a firsthand knowledge of logistics and government activities and intricacies involved in conducting business in local operational and regulatory environment.
Seeking further professional development Mr. Trubetskoy later joined U.S. branch of one of Denmark’s largest marine transportation service providers, DFDS Group A/S, where he was managing U.S. freight forwarding operations. DFDS was later purchased by DSV A/S creating one of world’s largest logistics and supply chain management service conglomerates.
While global operation was still a farfetched dream, Mr. Trubetskoy decided to part ways with DFDS DSV Transport Group and focus on specific region where he and his colleagues had enormous amount of expertise and experience.
Netfrate LLC opened its first U.S. office in 2004 and began operations under FMC license No. 019066NF.
