Sea Freight

Sea Freight Services

Our Sea Freight Services involve transporting goods by sea from one port to another. Others call it ocean freight services.

Usually, we offer this mode of transportation for international trade and shipping bulk or heavy cargo.

The Sea Shipment Services We Offer:

Thus, you will enjoy the following under our sea shipment services:

1. Containerization:

    • First, we pack your goods into containers for easy handling and protect them during transit. Standard container sizes include 20-foot and 40-foot containers.
    • Containerization allows for efficient loading and unloading of ships, as well as easy transfer between different modes of transportation (ship, truck, etc.).
    • Very importantly, we consolidate several packages and ship them in containers to offer affordable shipment costs to our clients.

As part of our Containerization Logistics Solutions, we offer

    • Full Container Load (FCL): Here, clients with large consignment volumes can opt to consolidate and load them into one container for easy transportation to the exact locations.
    • Less than Container Load (LCL): Goods from multiple shippers share a single container. This option suits smaller shipments that don’t require a full container.

2. Documentation:

    • Sea freight involves a significant amount of documentation, technicalities, and regulations. At Alexco Delivery, we take up all these burdens and make sea shipment easy for everyone.

3. Transit Time:

    • Sea freight generally has longer transit times compared to air freight. The exact duration depends on the distance between the origin and destination, the shipping route, and other factors.
    • All China shipments will take a total duration of about 48 days. Thus, you will receive your packages and consignments within 48 days after loading.

4. Cost Considerations:

    • Sea freight is often a more cost-effective option for transporting large or heavy goods over long distances than air freight. However, it is slower than the Air Shipping method.
    • Currently, we charge $230 per CBM for Sea Freight or goods. You can check our Air shipping details from here.

5. Freight Forwarding:

    • Alexco Delivery is a freight forwarder that handles your logistics of sea freight shipments. 
    • Therefore, we coordinate the entire shipping process, from booking cargo space to arranging transportation and handling documentation.

6. Regulations and Compliance:

    • Sea freight shipments are subject to international regulations and customs requirements. 
    • We ensure compliance with these regulations to avoid delays in the smooth shipping of your goods.

 7. Tracking and Visibility:

    • Alexco Delivery shipping company provides tracking services by allowing shippers to monitor the status and location of their cargo during transit.

In conclusion, I will say you must be careful when considering shipping needs for your business.

Very importantly, you must consider factors such as costs, transit time, and the nature of the goods being transported.

That is why you should choose Alexco Delivery for all your shipping needs.
