Here are some examples of sea freight customized solutions: as per Universe
1. Full Container Load (FCL): FCL services involve shipping goods in a dedicated container. This option is suitable for businesses that have a large volume of goods to transport or require enhanced security for their cargo. It allows for exclusive use of a container, ensuring that the entire space is utilized efficiently.
2. Less than Container Load (LCL): LCL services are ideal for businesses that do not have enough goods to fill an entire container. In this case, the goods are consolidated with other shipments from different customers into a single container. LCL provides a cost-effective solution by sharing the container space and splitting the shipping costs among multiple parties.
3. Temperature-Controlled Shipping: This solution is essential for goods that require specific temperature conditions during transportation, such as perishable items or pharmaceutical products. Temperature-controlled containers or refrigerated containers (reefers) are used to maintain the required temperature range throughout the journey.
4. Oversized or Heavy Cargo: Customized sea freight solutions can handle oversized or heavy cargo that cannot fit into standard shipping containers. Specialized equipment and handling procedures, such as flat racks, open-top containers, or roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessels, are utilized to accommodate and secure such cargo effectively.
5. Door-to-Door Services: These solutions provide end-to-end transportation, starting from the shipper’s location to the final destination. It includes pickup, packaging, documentation, customs clearance, ocean freight, and delivery, offering a hassle-free shipping experience for businesses and individuals.
6. Customs Brokerage: Our sea freight customized solutions include customs brokerage services. Customs brokers facilitate the customs clearance process, ensuring compliance with import/export regulations, handling paperwork, paying duties and taxes, and coordinating with relevant authorities on behalf of the shipper.
