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.

The US is one of the most innovative consumer markets in the world. According to HSBC’s ‘The World in 2050’, the US is predicted to keep its place as the world’s largest economy until 2050. It is the UK’s number one export destination and is ranked in the top five easiest countries to do business with.

Our global ocean freight services cover both import and export deep sea container consolidations (LCL) as well as full load (FCL) services. We are licensed by the US FMC as an approved NVOCC (non-vessel operating carrier), bonded OTI and AMS approved by US Customs & Border Protection Agency. We are also part of C-TPAT, the supply chain security programme led by US Customs and Border Protection.

Our experienced and dedicated staff can assist customers with ISF filing and power of attorney. We also have our own AMS in-house system and can arrange door delivery for your shipment. Serving DAP (Delivered at Place) and DDP (Delivered Duty Paid), Unsworth are able to facilitate the shipping of various commodities, from personal effects to high value goods. An established automotive service also allows us to transport vehicles (cars, caravans and motor homes) safely and efficiently.
