Sea Freight

Shipping goods by sea is the most economic and ecologic way to ship large volumes of goods. As an experienced sea freight forwarder, our dedicated team provide logistics solutions across an extensive network of cargo hubs. We provide our services on a global level going from Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Hong Kong (China), Singapore, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Hamburg, Los Angeles and New York.

Sea Freight’s relatively slow delivery times make it an essential option for low cost deliveries worldwide.

Advantages of Sea Freight

Compared to air freight, a sea freight forwarder offers significant advantages in cargo size and diversity, as well as lower costs. Sea freight offers superior flexibility, as vessels can ship almost any type of goods. Cargo size is rarely an issue with a sea freight forwarder. With a greater volume of goods being shipped at a lower cost, sea freight solutions can make your goods more profitable. Sea freight is a “green” freight solution that has less impact on the environment.
