FCL shipments and what we offer

Unsworth has over 40 years experience moving goods, allowing our export team to take care of the entire process from warehouse to destination and provide our customers with a hassle free shipping experience. When shipping a full container load we can offer a choice of multimodal containers: 20ft, 40ft, and 40HC. Extensive FCL container services are also available including Dry, Reefer, Flat rack, Open top etc. There are also a number of warehousing and storage facilities available as well as accurate web-tracking upon request.
