Looking for the cheapest way to ship a pallet of goods?
Sea Freight offers incredible value for money for non-urgent shipments. It is ideally suited to large shipments whether you're shipping a single pallet or a full container load.
Sea freight forwarders assist industries that rely on shipping goods or any other aspect of their supply chain to or from foreign countries. Individuals moving abroad or transporting goods, such as furniture or vehicles, between countries will also find that sea freight is a much cheaper option than air cargo.
Not only is sea freight cheaper than air freight, but it has a much smaller carbon footprint, which makes it the environmentally friendly choice.
What are the advantages of the sea freight service?
If your consignment is not urgent, you can choose to send your goods on a sea freight service as the price is far more affordable, especially for large and heavy pallets. You can ship from 1 single pallet to full container loads. Also, you can send pallets of different sizes (standard or oversized).
Can I send both pallets and parcels by sea freight service?
You can only ship pallets via sea freight. Please be advised that this type of service only handles palletized shipments, and sending a parcel via sea freight would not be cost-effective.
Can I choose a door to door option when choosing the sea freight service?
For certain destinations, we can quote for a door to door option if the delivery address is a commercial location. Please email us with as much information as possible and we will send you a quote shortly. If the delivery point is a residential address you can only choose a door to port option.
The port I want to ship to is not displayed on your website. How should I proceed?
If the port you want to send your shipment to is not included in the options displayed on our website, please email us with all the information and we will request a price for that destination.
Can I ship by sea freight if I don't have a customs agent/ broker?
Yes, you can. You will receive the Bill of Landing from us, which will include the details of an agent that can help you with the customs procedures to import the goods into the destination country.
What documents do I need when shipping a pallet via sea freight service?
If you are shipping your consignment via sea freight, you will need a commercial invoice containing HS/commodity codes. If you are shipping personal effects, you will need a proforma invoice (which we supply) and a packing list. 3 copies of the Invoice must be attached to the pallet. Please be advised that depending on the destination country and the nature of the goods, specific documentation may be required. If you require further information, please access the page of the country you want to ship to, and check the Q&A section or feel free to contact us via email.
What can I ship by sea freight?
We ship a wide range of goods by sea freight, such as car parts, tools, printed materials, ambient food items, and many more. For restricted items, please visit our Prohibited & Restricted Items section.
Sea freight forwarders transport goods in entire containers or share one between several multiple clients. Full container loads (FCL) are usually 40' and 20' containers loaded and sealed at origin.
When you don't have enough items to fill a full container, less-than-container-load (LCL) services can consolidate your cargo with other shipments in one container. The cost of shipping is distributed among the customers based on the amount of space they require.
Containers are loaded and sealed and then shipped by rail or road to a port. All international shipments must complete the customs clearance procedures of each country and some goods may require inspections.
