Our global ocean freight services cover both import and export deep sea container consolidations (LCL) as well as full load (FCL) services. Unsworth provides weekly, direct sailing services to Hong Kong from the UK in 33 days, port to port, with on-carriage destinations to China and the remaining Far East.

Container shipping has revolutionised the sea freight industry over the last 42 years. We encounter goods that have been transported by sea in a container every day! It is a method that can be accessed by anyone, not just big companies or manufacturers.

Unsworth UK takes care of the entire process from warehouse to destination, providing customers with a hassle free shipping experience. With reliable and secure sailings, our customers benefit from offices and representatives throughout the world to monitor and control your freight. You will also have access to a network of convenient receiving depots located in Birmingham, Bristol, Felixstowe, Hull, London and Manchester. We also hold full Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status.

Hong Kong is a region on the southern coast of China. With strong ties to the UK, more and more British companies are setting up offices and headquarters. Over 50% of the UK’s investment in Asia is allocated to Hong Kong. Operating under a free trade policy and strong economic success has contributed to its recognition as the Worlds Most Free Economy and high ranking in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business report.

Our dedicated team are able to ship a wide variety of cargo including conventional, commercial and personal effects. As Hong Kong is a main hub, we also provide onwards service to a range of Far East ports.

Please note that customers wishing to export goods to Hong Kong will need to ensure ISPM15 standards are adhered to. This is the internationally agreed standard for the treatment of all forms of packaging made from solid wood.

Less than Container load (LCL) to Hong Kong

Cargo that does not fill a full container will be combined with other parties’ cargo at the loading warehouse. Unsworth specialises in LCL shipments, allowing us to tailor our services to suit your requirements.

To qualify LCL cargo must be the following requirements:

  • Be in-gauge
  • Be non-hazardous
  • Be suitably packaged for shipment.

Full container load (FCL) to Hong Kong

This describes larger cargo that fill up either 20 ft (28 cbm) or 40 ft (58 cbm) containers on their own with the doors being sealed upon loading. We have extensive FCL container services available including Dry, Reefer, Flat rack and Open top.

Our ocean freight service offers you several benefits:

  • The choice of multimodal containers: 20ft, 40ft, 40HC.
  • Transportation options for both transhipped and direct services
  • Accurate web-tracking upon request
  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) capabilities
  • Roll-on/roll-off (ro-ro) loading

We can provide customers with the option to ship Freight of All Kind (FAK). This includes the ability to ship a variety of motor vehicles, non-commercial cargo (personal effects) and commercial cargo (business to business). Unlike most companies we also ship food products, a number of hazardous goods and out of gauge cargo.

Getting your cargo to us

You are welcome to deliver your FCL cargo to the agreed port, where we can load it into a container for you. If you do not have access to a loading facility it’s not a problem! We offer door to port pickup via our trucking service, where your cargo will be loaded into the container at one of our warehouses and delivered to its port of origin.
