When to use Sea Freight
Sea freight is a viable choice as the mode of transport if you want to ship goods which are not needed urgently, bulky in nature and large in quantity.
Full Container Load (FCL)
Full Container Load is a shipment mode where a cargo occupies the full size of a container. There are various types and sizes of containers such as 20’DC (20 Foot Dry Container), 40’DC (40 Foot Dry Container), 40’HC (40 Foot Dry High Cub), and 45’HC (45 Foot Dry High Cub).
Less Container Load (LCL)
These containers are used when you don’t have enough cargo to place in one container alone. We will put your cargo with other cargo to fill the container and ship to the same destination. The container will be loaded with different shipments from various shippers. We charged based on the size of your cargo in cubic metres.
Break Bulk Cargo
Break bulk cargo is a shipping method for items that are large-sized and heavy cargo, items that cannot be loaded into containers. This cargo will just be placed to a vessel and not put into a container. Some examples below:
Roll-on/Roll-off: vessels made to load wheeled cargo, such as automobiles, trucks, trailers, and railroad cars, which are driven on and off the ship on their wheels.
Lift-on/Lift-off: vessels that use a crane to load and unload cargo.
Less than container load
If you have cargo that is one pallet or more, but less than a full container load.
