Check with local freight forwarders, they can set you up.

Dude, you should NOT have bought all those Mastercrafts from ebay, I'm telling you the container is going to be EMPTY !

j/k

Yeah, call a local forwarder. If you know anyone in a mfg/dist company locally check with them on who they use to be safe about it.

No offence, but if you are asking a question like this ......you should have been doing a lot of research a lot sooner than this. Also, keep in mind that you are going to be paying the trucker for the New York / Michigan ROUND TRIP because the container needs to be delivered back to the New York docks.
The best way to handle this type of delivery is to arrange a door to door shipment with the freight forwarder who is responsible for getting the container shipped from whatever foreign country you are dealing with into New York. This is BY FAR the cheapest, simplest and easiest way to do this.
If you've bought a containerload of widgets "fob-New York docks", and your foreign supplier is paying the freight to New York, you would be WAY further ahead to pay your supplier the extra $$$ to get it delivered to your door.
Shoot me a pm if you have any further questions. Like Rod, I do this a lot.

Something like that. I have a broker that handles it I guess is what I meant. Too lazy to type that last night I guess.....
