Sea Freight Quote

A freight rate is the cost of transporting cargo from one point to another.

     A freight rate depends on:

     – Type of cargo

     – Size of cargo

     – Distance to destination

     – Mode of transport

One of the earliest forms of freight transportation was by water and it has now developed into one of the most used transit modes for cargo around the world.

Unsworth Global Logistics has access to regular sailings with import and export services from over 1000 origins and destinations.
