Advantages of sea freight and professional ocean cargo services
It goes without saying that sea freight does not offer the same fast delivery as air freight might, but there are a wealth of advantages to opting for ocean cargo services. One of the major advantages of is that it offers less taxation as freight costs are taxable, which means that you can ultimately save on costs. The fact sea freight offers less competition in terms of traffic also means that you can expect no delays or hassles along the way.
Shipping is the ideal mode of transit for commercial items as well as personal effects. The nature of what you are shipping can sometimes affect the requirements, restrictions, taxes and tariffs. As a result, we advise that you discuss your consignment with one of our team members to ensure that you are making use of the right mode of transport and to gather advice on your shipments’ delivery. Goods can be delivered to a port of your choice, or unloaded and transported to a specific address – the choice is yours.
Seaport custom offices are less stringent than that of airports and you expect for there to be less administration hold ups when your consignment arrives at its port of destination. The fact that sea freight vessels use less fuel to travel long distances also means that when moving large consignments, you can feel good about doing your bit for the environment.
Of course handling insurance and customs documentation for your consignment can get confusing. When you take on our ocean cargo services at UCS, we will ensure that all of the involved shipping, customs and insurance paperwork is professionally arranged and handled for you.
