More than 90 per cent of what consumers buy arrives per container. It’s impossible for any one country to specialize in every single product that is being produced. While specialization can be developed over time, the costs are often not viable. Therefore, it’s simply a matter of feasibility to import raw materials, machinery or finished products from overseas.
This is where ocean freight comes in. In ocean freight, goods are neatly packed in 20 ft or 40 ft containers and booked for space by the freight forwarder to the shipping line. The container is then taken to the terminal of the carrying vessel and transported from the port of origin to the port of destination.
Ocean freight can be done form port-to-port, port-to-door or door-to-door and may include truck pickup and delivery as well. Our ocean freight services cover different types of products, with services extending to multiple industries—both big and small.
Our Ro/Ro shipment services are also part of the ocean freight services we offer. This allows for large scale manufacturers or wholesalers to ship their vehicles, e.g. tractors, buses, trucks, automobiles and other oversized cargo to be shipped via Pure Car Carriers (PCC) or Pure Car Truck Carriers (PCTC).
Ex-Importers wishing to ship their products using our ocean freight services can opt for Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than Container Load (LCL). Both options allow for businesses and manufacturers to transport their goods in a safe, reliable, timely and cost-effective manner, taking into account their needs and requirements and the amount of space their cargo requires on the freight.
