Sea Freight

More cargo travels as sea freight than any other mode of transport.

As independent freight forwarders we negotiate directly with the container shipping companies to obtain the best rates for moving your cargo. Whether it is regular commercial cargo (both export and import) or personal and household effects and automobiles, we can find the best shipping solution for you. As Freight Brokers, we arrange shipments from and to all major ports in the UK.

FCL (Full Container Loads) shipment provides secure watertight transport from warehouse to warehouse, packed and sealed by the shipper, unsealed and unpacked by the consignee.

General Purpose (GP) containers are suitable for the carriage of most types of cargo.
Please see below parameters of GP containers.

We can also move Open Top (OT) and Flat Rack (FR) Containers, Conventional Cargo, RO-RO and Outsize Loads.
