If you need help or advice on the Sea Freight industry, give us a call on 0161 791 6011 for more information.

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF

Containers

Depending on the volume, size or weight of the goods you need to transport, there are two options available to you. We’ll explain the key difference between them and what this means for you during your consultation.

Packages vary depending on the size/weight of the load, location and time-frame.

We’ll be able to provide you detailed breakdown of costs involved, with multi-modal transport options including Dedicated Vehicles or EU Groupage, Part Loads and Full Load freight options covering the remaining distance on land.

LESS THAN A CONTAINER LOAD (LCL)

We offer a weekly in-house container consolidation service which transports your goods to 87 destinations from Hamburg, Antwerp and Rotterdam, as well as a guaranteed departure time for part loads to 185 ports across the world. This allows you to take advantage of reliable shipping times even when you only have a part-load to transport.

FULL CONTAINER LOADS (FCL)

If you have a full container load, we have access to a huge range of container types, including HC and reefer containers, in a range of sizes from 20' to 40'. We also offer transport for specialist projects, including auto, roll on/roll off and hazardous goods loads.

As part of our complete service we can offer electronic customs clearance, picking, packaging and quality checks. Whenever you send a consignment using our service, we will keep you updated throughout.
