Our dedicated sea freight team has vast experience in managing both imports and exports, and has established relationships with leading shipping carriers, enabling us to negotiate highly competitive long, medium and short term shipping rates.
Whether full container loads (FCL) or less than full container loads (LCL) we provide a fully insured service with the optimum combination of quality, speed and affordability.
We have operations strategically located within the world’s major manufacturing regions, including offices, warehousing and consolidation centres in China and Hong Kong, the world’s largest container port. Close partnerships and strategic alliances with sea freight specialists enable us to provide local representation in countries where we don’t have wholly owned operations.
We also offer membership to a sea freight buying group. Based on the concept of combining sea freight volume with other similarly sized businesses it allows you access to preferential rates and benefits usually associated with large volume shippers and their own negotiated deals.
