Sea freight, also known as ocean freight, is the preferred method for shipping goods across vast distances using shipping containers. It is the backbone of global trade, with a staggering 90% of all goods being transported by sea.

At our company, we specialize in providing comprehensive ocean freight services, ensuring your cargo arrives at the right destination, at the right time, and in a cost-efficient manner.

As consumers, we understand that shipping costs play a crucial role in our purchasing decisions. Whether directly or indirectly, we all contribute to the transportation expenses associated with moving these metal boxes around the world. Each item manufactured overseas encompasses a hidden logistics expense within its selling price.

Why Choose Sea Freight with Quickship?

Cost-Effectiveness: Sea freight offers significant cost savings, especially for heavy products. For example, a single container can hold up to 10,000 beer bottles. Shipments weighing over 500 kg are often too expensive for air freight, making sea freight the more economical choice.

Reliability: Sea freight is known for its reliability in transporting goods over long distances. Shipping lines have well-established networks and schedules, ensuring smooth operations. While occasional delays may occur due to port congestion or customs procedures, sea freight remains a dependable method for transporting goods.

Protection: Ocean freight is a secure mode of transport, with stringent measures in place to protect cargo. Containers are designed to withstand the challenges of sea travel, and professional handling ensures proper security. While cargo falling off ships is rare, insurance options are available for additional protection.
