Ocean Freight

Cost Effective, Economical and Green

Ocean freight services are a more economical and greener way to ship large or bulky items internationally. While air freight is favoured for time-sensitive shipments, ocean freight is still the first choice for many businesses and individuals looking for a cost-effective solution.

If you need to ship a significant volume of goods, and if you are happy for longer transit times to be offset by reduced cost, ocean freight could be the perfect option to suit your needs.

Never too Small to Sail

Small businesses and individual customers often don’t consider sea freight as a viable option, as it tends to be associated with larger companies exporting high volumes of commercial cargo. But sea freight services can be ideal for smaller businesses and for the transportation of personal effects, where time is not limited and budgets are tight.

The majority of sea cargo is transported in either TEU (twenty foot equivalent unit) or FEU (forty foot equivalent unit) containers.

With Precision Forwarding, you have the option to book either an FCL (full container load) at one of those sizes, or an LCL (part container load) if you don’t have enough cargo to fill a whole container at either of those sizes.

Ocean freight can be complicated, and the maze of daunting industry terminology can deter the uninitiated. It can also be difficult to get your head around what documentation is required.

The Value of Independence

Many providers tie themselves to specific ocean carriers. So the solution they offer you isn’t always based on what’s best for you, but rather on their own contracts with shipping lines.
