Sea freight forwarding, also known as ocean freight, is one of the longest established forms of transporting goods internationally.

How to get the most from our sea freight forwarding services

1. Plan ahead

Transporting goods by sea takes much longer than by air. There are also other considerations such as national holidays, bad weather conditions and other delay-related factors.

Book in advance
Lack of planning can lead to unexpected decisions like added cost, which eat into profit margins. Book well in advance of your desired delivery date to ensure that your goods are shipped on time. Our expert freight team provide you with transit times depending on the vessel, routes and good local knowledge.

2. Bigger is better

For sea freight, greater volumes almost always mean more affordable delivery rates, especially when you’re shipping goods to international destinations.

3. Protect your goods

Package your goods correctly to minimise the possibility of damage during transit.

4. Know which service type you’ll need

Air freight forwarding services are often used for high value and low volume shipments. Air freight is the fastest shipping method, has very reliable arrival and departure times and you can send cargo to nearly every worldwide destination. It also offers lower insurance premiums and higher level security as well as reduced risk of theft and damage. There is less packaging and less storage required. Additionally, due to the quicker transit times you don’t need to keep as many units in stock.

TPS Global’s air freight forwarding services are also suitable for time critical delivery.  We work with carefully selected and reputable air carriers offering direct, deferred, consolidated and hand carry services which means we are able to fulfil your schedule requirements and delivery deadlines.

As our services are bespoke, we can tailor delivery to suit any item however large or small, urgent or otherwise.
