Container transport advice and requirements planning
Sea freight transports do not just begin and end at the port. Together we discuss the perfect way for your freight. Benefit from our many years of know-how and leave the needs-based planning to us. The smooth planning of logistics – from the point of departure to the desired destination – are among our strengths.
Customs clearance and container congestion
In order to be able to transport your sea freight smoothly from the point of departure to the destination, numerous formalities must be completed in advance. Our many years of expertise save you time and money. Avoid any delay and stay calm even if there is a container jam. We also ensure that your goods are protected from the dynamic forces of the rough sea and other weather influences.
The delivery to the port – The pre-carriage
Before your goods and merchandise can be shipped overseas, they must be transported to the point of departure (e.g. Krefeld) to the seaport. Sit back and relax and leave the organisation and execution of the pre-carriage to us. We are already your reliable partner during the pre-transport and select the optimal mode of transport (truck, BARGE, RAIL, or combined), type and route in your interest, which guarantees the delivery of your goods at the port.
From the port to the consignee – The subsequent transportation
Once your sea freight reaches the port of arrival at the desired destination, everything revolves around forwarding to the receiving point respectively the proper and professional unloading of your goods and merchandise. We organise the unloading at the port of reception as well as the next transport step to the desired destination. Of course, we also act in your best interests here and ensure that your goods and merchandise are in proper condition and are transported onwards as gently as possible.
Freight monitoring and location tracking
Every overseas transport requires complete documentation and optimal organisation. Of course, overseas transports require a certain amount of time to cover the desired transport distance. Damage to your goods during transport is usually only noticed at the end of the transport. By means of freight monitoring (optional), we keep you constantly in the picture about the status of the delivery and the condition of your goods.
Shipment at the port of loading and sea transport
In addition to all the organisation required for sea transport, we also take care of shipping to the desired port of loading. In rare cases, the port of loading may differ from the port of destination. Our experienced team works here on an international level with proven partners who, like all our partners, meet our high standards in terms of punctuality and reliability.
