 The Benefits Of Choosing Sea Freight From China To The UK

Whether you require shipping of a full load from China, or a less container load pallet delivery from China, you’re sure to find that our sea freight services are both highly affordable and reliable. If you’re shipping more than 100 kilos of goods, you’ll find sea freight a far cheaper option when compared with air freight, making it the top shipping method when importing high-volume, low-value goods.

Even better, importing goods from China to the UK by sea has a far smaller carbon footprint making it an environmentally conscious choice, ideal for companies that are keen to emphasise their eco-friendly approach to doing business.

We offer both full load sea shipping and less container load with shared containers to meet your sea freight import needs. As a result, we’re confident that we can give you the most competitive quotes for your requirements while also guaranteeing the safe delivery of your shipment within an approximate six-week timeframe.
