International Ocean Freight Shipments
Dedicated Ocean Freight Shipping Office
Working as your international shipping agent, our dedicated ocean freight office based in Essex and network of trusted agents around the world will look after your shipments as if they were their own.
We handle full containers for those that have them, and organise loading into our own weekly consolidation services (LCL), for those with a little less volume. The choice is yours – and so is the space.
LCL Groupage Service
If you don’t have enough goods (or have slightly too many!) to fill a container, our LCL (Less than Container Load) service can provide the perfect freight solution for your import and export shipments.
Also referred to as Groupage, we consolidate your cargo with other shippers so the cost of the container booking is shared by all. Your fees will be determined by a combination of the weight and the volume of your cargo, meaning you pay for the space required for your shipment and not a penny more.
Our in-house team will assume responsibility for the booking and will deal with relevant customs processes on your behalf so all you need to do is ensure that your items are packed and wrapped suitably for LCL shipment and that they are with us on time for consolidation, making LCL a particularly beneficial solution for smaller businesses, or first time importers and exporters.
Offering weekly scheduled sailings to and from an extensive range of destinations, you won’t have long to wait for your goods to get where you need them to be.
