Why use sea freight?
Cost effective and reliable.
Sea freight, in general, is more cost effective and less expensive than air freight. Container shipping helps our customers to reduce their logistics costs significantly compared to using air transport. If you are shipping less than a container load, your price is often determined by cubic meter. With larger and heavier shipments, it is often much cheaper to ship by sea.
Today’s shipping schedules offer the chance for frequent and reliable movement of goods and with longer transit times planning ahead is vital.
FCL and LCL.
FCL means full container load and LCL is less than container load. Customers use FCL when their goods can fill a whole container – usually a 20’ or a 40’ container.
Based on carrier routing options, FCL is a great transit-time-to-cost method of shipping your goods. FCL gives you schedule flexibility, high frequency of sailings per port-pair and good availability of equipment at each end.
