There are two types of Sea Freight rates; LCL and FCL, each offer a different type of shipment. When you import goods to the UK via sea freight shipping, goods are loaded into containers that are then loaded onto vessels for transit. Depending on the size of your shipment, you will either be able to fill a full container with only your goods or your may need to share your container with other people.
LCL – Less than Container Load
LCL cargo is for when you do not have enough cargo to fill a full container so instead of spending out money on a whole container where space will not be fully utilised we offer a service where you can share container space with our other customers thus saving you money.
FCL – Full Container Load
For when you do have enough cargo to fill a full container, FCL is your option. Typically provided in 20, 40 & 40-foot-high cube variations we can provide excellent rates, weekly sails and fast transits. For frozen foodstuffs we can provide reefer containers which are refrigerated containers specially designed to carry frozen food.
How Sea Freight Works
It is common for companies to use a specialist in shipping to arrange their sea freight and have their goods moved from the suppliers safely and legally. This is helpful as import and customs processes are complex. Some mistakes can be costly, so having a shipping agent involved is an effective way of managing the risks and ensuring the process goes smoothly.

When buying products from the other side of the world one of the first things to consider is how to get them to your door. There are two main options; Air freight or Sea Freight.
The choice all depends on what your needs are. If you are looking for the quickest service, the best option is of course air freight. If you are trying to keep your costs down, the sky-high prices of air freight may not be for you.
There is a chance that the products you’re purchasing will force your hand one way or the other. If your cargo is being sold at an event in 2-3 weeks you won’t be able to wait for a delivery via sea freight. If, on the other hand, the products are large and the RRP is relatively low then importing your cargo by air freight will mean the cost to import the product will be higher than the price you can sell them for.
