Sea Freight Services
Shipping cargo globally with ease
What is Ocean Freight
Ocean freight shipping is the method of transporting containerized cargo loaded onto vessels by sea. Over 90% of all the world’s trade is carried by sea – and even more in some countries. So if you want to ship your freight around the world, you will probably ship it by sea freight.
As a general rule, shipments weighing more than 100kg – or consisting of multiple cartons – will be sent by sea freight. The containers are designed and built for intermodal freight transport. That means the containers can be used across various transportation modes – from ship to rail to truck – without unloading and reloading the cargo.
