HOW ARE THE FREIGHT CHARGES CALCULATED WHEN SHIPPING BY SEA FREIGHT?
Unlike Air Freight, it is primarily the volume of your shipment which determines the cost. Sea freight shipments are charged "per cubic metre" therefore we would always need to know the size of the shipment before we can advise the final cost.
Although we can ship a consignment which consists of several individual packages, we would always advise that it is much safer to palletise them. This means that we would bring your packages to our warehouse and build them onto a strong wooden pallet base before wrapping and strapping them all together to build a single large unit.
Once a pallet has been built we would measure the dimensions of the pallet to determine how many cubic metres you finally have, and therefore the cost.
Pease note we charge just £20 for every pallet built
WHY CHOOSE SEA FREIGHT?
Sea freight may be your preferred choice of transportation if you have lots of heavy packages to send, or several very large items.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The transit time will vary from destination to destination but obviously sea freight is a much slower service than Air Freight.
