Undoubtedly, many goods imported from Asia, especially from China and India, are transported by sea. This is usually the most economical and efficient form of transportation.

Sea freight is also a greener form of transporting goods over long distances. Sea container shipping is preferred due to competitive freight prices and the ability to transport both full container loads (FCL) and less than container loads (LCL).

We offer sea container transport from Asia to major ports in Europe and around the world. We also provide customs clearance services for goods imported from countries such as China and India.
