What is sea freight?

Sea freight is freight forwarding by sea.

You can transport your cargo by ferry, container ship, or other marine transportation. Ocean freight is suitable for clients who need to deliver large cargo volumes and for whom the delivery time is not critical. 

It can also be the most suitable choice when you need to provide cargo shipping to a place not connected by land - to islands.

 Overseas shipping is the most economical solution compared to other types of shipping services, but in comparison, the delivery time is longer. 

Accordingly, ocean shipping is an ideal way to ship your cargo anywhere globally. We ship from and to the United Arab Emirates, including China, the USA, Africa, or any country in Europe.

What does sea freight include?

Even if the location you need to deliver the cargo to is far from the port; ocean freight can still be the most convenient logistics service in terms of cost-effectiveness. We professionally fit our logistics solutions based on your requirements.

The service you receive from Vervo Middle East includes all stages of cargo preparation and shipment, from the moment we receive your cargo till the delivery is perfectly accomplished.

 We will help you prepare all documents, including licenses, permits, and customs declarations, so you can focus on developing your business with no need to worry about your cargo's overseas shipping.

Types of sea freight:

LCL (Less than Container Load)

Ocean groupage or LCL is the most suitable type of cargo shipping when cargo size or volume is small and does not fit in one container. LCL is a cost-effective solution that combines your cargo with another client's cargo, so you have to pay only for the space your cargo occupies.

Bulk cargo

Overseas shipping is also suitable for bulk shipment. Mostly bulk cargoes that need to be transported are seeds, spices, and cereals. If required, we can provide a ventilated container that allows for air exchange when you need to transport goods that need air exchange, such as coffee or cocoa.

FCL (Full Container Load)

We perform sea shipping for full loads if your cargo size and volume can occupy the entire container. FCL is a highly recommended solution for shipping cargo far away, such as shipping to the USA.

Temperature control

Vervo Middle East offers services of refrigerated logistics. We conduct overseas shipping for cargo with temperature control using refrigerated containers. Most of the time, temperature-controlled cargoes are composed of medicines, foodstuffs, or plants that require a particular temperature.

Liquid bulk cargo

We perform liquid cargo transportation by tankers (Find out more about Tank Containers below). Liquid bulk cargoes can include oils, wines, chemicals, or fuel. You will receive step-by-step help with the fundamental documentation of your sea freight transportation.

Dangerous goods (ADR)

Sea cargo shipping of dangerous goods is suitable for transporting gases, explosives, flammable liquids, and similar hazardous cargoes. The EU divides Dangerous goods (ADR) into nine classes according to the danger degree. That type of sea transportation requires a high level of proper documentation and permits, which we will help you arrange.

Before performing any sea shipping, attentively read the conditions of Incoterms 2020. Those terms are intended for shipping by sea. Often, both the buyer and the seller are not aware of the limits of their responsibilities, so be informed and aware of the International Trade Rules!
