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.
Hong Kong is an open economy and important gateway into the Chinese mainland and the rest of Asia. Characterised by low taxation and a free trade policy, Hong Kong has been recognised as the world’s most free economy and ranked highly in ease of doing business. As a former British colony the trade relationship has been maintained, with more than half the UK’s investment in Asia going to Hong Kong.
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.
