Sea freight shipping involves the transport of goods in cargo ships which move on water; whether that is in seas or major rivers. Sea freight shipments take longer than airfreight but are more cost efficient. Shipping your cargo by sea is also more eco-friendly, due to low levels of fossil fuels and low fuel consumption.

China has long been the UK’s main import origin but it is also a top 10 export destination for British goods, from luxury cars to fashion and healthcare. Although language and cultural barriers still exist, UK businesses are finding it increasingly easier to reach the Chinese consumer market. On its way to becoming the worlds largest market for luxury goods, the increasingly sophisticated consumers often turn to the UK for innovative and high-end products that are hard to come by locally.

UGL facilitates a weekly, direct sailing service to China. We provide services to many destinations including Qingdao, Shanghai, Ningbo, Shantou, Macau and Hong Kong. Transit times vary according to destination but range from 29 days to 40 days, port to port.

Our global ocean freight services cover both import and export deep sea container consolidations (LCL) as well as full load (FCL) services. UGL staff can provide assistance with import permits and China’s Advanced Manifest Regulation (AMS).

Please note that customers wishing to export goods to China 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.
