What is sea freight transport?

Sea freight means that the cargo is transported by sea. This can be by ferry, container ship or other means of maritime transport. Sea freight transport is suitable for customers who transport large volumes of cargo and for whom delivery times are not critical, as well as to places that are not connected by land or rail. Sea freight transport is also the most economical solution compared to other modes of transport, but the delivery time by sea is longer. The most common sea freight shipments are to and from the United States, to and from China or other Asian countries.

What does sea freight transport contain

Not all cities are easily and quickly accessible by road. Sea freight is the most convenient way to deliver large cargoes, even if the place of departure and arrival is not close to the port. Our service offered includes all stages of cargo preparation and handling from cargo acceptance to successful delivery. We will help you prepare documents, including licenses, permits and customs declarations, if necessary, so that you can focus on the development of your business and not worry about sea freight transport.

Types of sea freight:

LCL

Groupage is the most appropriate mode of transport for customers when cargo size or volume does not fit in one container. This is a cost-effective solution by combining your cargo with another customer's cargo and paying only for the space occupied by your cargo.

Temperature control

Sea freight transportation for cargo with temperature control is conducted in refrigerated containers. Often these sea freight transports consist of medicines, foodstuffs or plants that require a certain temperature.

Bulk freight

Sea freight transportation is also suitable for bulk cargo. Most often transported seeds, spices and cereals. If necessary, we also provide a ventilated container that ensures necessary air exchange, for example, when transporting coffee or cocoa.

Liquid bulk cargo

Transportation of liquid bulk cargo or liquid cargo is performed by tankers, the types of which you can find out below. Sea freight transport in bulk usually consists of oils, wines, chemicals or fuel. We will help with the necessary documentation for sea freight transportation.

FCL

Sea freight transportation for full loads is performed for customers whose size of cargo or volume can occupy the entire cargo space or container. This is an advantageous solution for transporting large quantities of cargo to distant places, such as to the USA or from China.

Dangerous goods (ADR)

Transport of dangerous goods is the transportation of explosives, gases, flammable liquids and other dangerous goods, which are divided into 9 classes according to the degree of danger. Such sea freight transportation requires proper documentation and permits, which we will help to arrange.

Before performing any type of sea freight transportation, be sure to read conditions of Incoterm 2020, which are intended for sea freight transportation. Often both the buyer and the seller are not aware of limits of their responsibilities, so be informed and aware of the International Trade Rules!
