Importing sea freight
As forwarders, we also know exactly what you need to import goods. We have a complete package of services regarding sea freight import that you can use. We cooperate closely with our network of local agents in this. Because they are connected to the digital chain too, you will be able to follow your sea freight entirely digitally from departure to arrival. Naturally, your personal contact will always be available to talk to, as well.
Furthermore, you will benefit from our competing sea freight rates, irrespective of the size of your shipment. We also offer FCL and LCL. Besides that, from a large number of destinations, we offer our own buyer consolidation.
In closing, as an AEO-certified forwarder, we immediately take care of the entire customs procedure for you, as soon as your sea freight transport arrives in the Rotterdam harbour. This way, you will quickly have your goods in possession. Lastly, we can also take care of things like physical distribution within Europe, and a broad range of value added services.
Exporting sea freight
Would you like to use sea freight transport for your export? We offer solutions for both FCL shipping and groupage (LCL) at competing sea freight rates. When you entrust your sea-based export to us, you will obtain a fixed contact, who will take good care of your transport on your behalf and who will keep you posted on important developments. This way, there will never be any unexpected surprises.
Besides taking care of a carefree shipment for you, you can also use us for other sea-freight-related services, such as taking care of the T1 documents for customs, various value added services and physical distribution.
Sea freight cross trade
Do you wish to ship goods directly between the producer and their final destination, without intervention of the Rotterdam harbour. In that case, you can use our cross trade sea freight. Here, too, you will benefit from our worldwide agent network. In cooperation with these reliable partners, your transport will be taken care of exquisitely from start to finish. The neutrality of your shipment will always be guaranteed, in that process. The Switch B/L will be prepared for you, as well. Thus, you can trust your shipment to be supplied in the proper way at its final destination.
Are you looking for quicker transit times than sea freight can offer, but do you not require the speed air freight gives you? In that case, we offer a sea-air transport. As far as transit times and routes go, this option ranks between sea freight and air freight. That could make it a good compromise for transporting your goods.
