This makes it an ideal choice for urgent shipments requiring rapid transportation.

Sea freight

Door-to-door sea freight shipments generally span 8 to 10 days, offering a cost-effective solution for transporting larger volumes of goods. 

With sea freight, clients can opt for either less than container load (LCL) or full container load (FCL) services, allowing flexibility based on the size and nature of their cargo.
