Full Container Load (FCL)
This is the most efficient, secure, and cost-effective solution for high volumes importers. Containers are packed at the point of origin and delivered to their destination.
Less Container Load (LCL)
Ideal for smaller volumes and top-up stock. Slightly slower than FCL shipments as freight is consolidated at the point of origin and de-consolidated at a warehouse before being delivered to the destination.
Specialised & Out-of-Gauge Cargo
Machinery and equipment that will not fit into a standard container. We offer specialised packaging and crating of oversized cargo and appropriate transport for such consignments.
Refrigerated Container (Reefer)
A specialised mode of transport for goods that are temperature sensitive and need careful handling. These containers remain connected to a power supply throughout the logistics chain.
