Groupage Sea Freight Rates
If your overall cargo volume does not meet our exclusive sea freight container (FCL) cargo packing volumes then the alternative to the exclusive container is the groupage sea container, this is where your cargo shipment shares container space with other sea freight consignments bound for the same destination.
Groupage is a cost-effective solution for smaller shipments as you only pay only for the container space used.One major disadvantage when using a groupage service is your sea freight may wait until sufficient cargo volumes are received to fill the groupage container.
However when using the WORLDWIDE groupage service we are able to guarantee frequent sailings on all major routes worldwide destinations.The transit time by groupage containers varies typically from 4 to 6 weeks.
Less than Container Rates (LCL Cargo)
When your Consignments are destined for countries not served by our regular groupage containers, your shipment is packed into our Less than container load service (LCL) shipping containers at our consolidation depot, then they are delivered to the container terminal for shipment by the ocean line.
As bookings can be made for a specific sailing, transit times are similar to the exclusive container option (FCL).
