Sea freight also known as ocean freight is one of the most cost-effective means of shipping large or bulky goods internationally. While Air freight is favoured for more urgent shipments, sea freight is still one of the most viable options for many businesses and individuals looking for a more cost-effective solution.

Pre-Plan Ahead

Sea freight shipping takes a much longer timeframe than air freight shipping, so be sure to make a booking well in advance of your desired delivery date where possible. We are happy to give you an estimation of transit times based on the vessel and routing.

Volume

Most of the time greater volumes usually equal cheaper delivery prices when shipping goods internationally. If possible try and schedule smaller deliveries to the same location altogether to save on delivery costs.
