Sea container shipping from Grand Logistics Company

Delivery by sea is a wonderful alternative to airlift and is often part of multimodal transportation.

The advantages of sea transportation are profitability on large distances and safety.
The downside is the speed, because delivery is not always fast, as desired. Our main task in organizing transportation by sea is to select the ideal carrier for the terms and conditions of the sea container line.

Container lines operate through their own agents, and we deal with most of them. A number of agents are working on the processing of your transport at once, you select a number of options plus our recommendations and choose the best one!

When adding a line, the freight rate, terms of supply and turning of containers, terms of freight rates and payment options, demurrage - additional payment for the hour of container relocation at the port and other factors are covered. With us you can wash the container as soon as possible, and every part depending on the size of the batch. We transport external containers (FCL, carrier) and assembled cargo weighing 500 kg and volume 1 cubic meter. (LCL, number of powers).

This is done on a turn-key basis, because we know that locksmiths need qualified support for their food supply:

We transport any kind of cargo
Standard loads:
General cargo
Cargo that can be listed, that is, cargo packed in containers or artificial cargo. Among them: boxes, bags, barrels, bags, rolling equipment. General cargo is usually transported in consolidated shipments, for which a cargo list is compiled. General cargo must be prepared for transportation and brought into transportable condition.
Liquid cargo
Cargo transported in liquid state (oil and petroleum products, chemicals in liquid form, liquefied gases, liquid food cargo). When transporting, storing and reloading liquid cargo, it is necessary to take into account their specific properties: viscosity, flammability, volatility, explosion hazard, vapor elasticity, impact on the human body, corrosion on metals, etc. Liquid cargo is transported by main pipelines, special liquid tank vessels and tank containers.
Bulk/loading cargo
Cargoes that do not have special packaging or containers are characterized by one physical property, which is called flowability. These are, for example, grain, coal, sand, coke, red and ore concentrates, salt, bulk building materials. At the same time, bulk cargo is called free-flowing cargo, and for loading bulk cargo it is necessary to use special equipment - excavators, dump trucks, etc.
Regular loads:
Reefer cargo
Cargoes requiring the creation of certain temperature conditions (frozen meat, fish, fresh vegetables, fruits, flowers, etc.). Without compliance with these conditions, transportation of sensitive cargo is impossible or possible only for a limited time. Transportation of refrigerated cargo is carried out by refrigerated ships (an economical type of refrigerated transportation), refrigerated containers, and in thermos cars.
Dangerous goods
Cargoes that require special precautions include substances and materials with physical and chemical properties of a high degree of danger.
Transportation of dangerous goods
Dangerous goods are divided into the following classes:

  • explosives
  • gases, compressed, liquefied
  • flammable liquids
  • flammable substances and materials
  • oxidizing substances and organic peroxides
  • poisonous (toxic) substances
  • radioactive materials and infectious substances
  • caustic and corrosive substances
  • other hazardous substances

Transportation of dangerous goods is carried out by all types of transport in ordinary transport units, but they must be equipped in a certain way, the vehicle and the driver must have permission to transport dangerous goods. The vehicle (truck, container, tank container, wagon) is marked with special safety stickers in accordance with the hazard class of the cargo. It should be borne in mind that activities for the acceptance and processing of dangerous goods at terminals must be licensed.

Oversized (project) cargo
Loads that at least in one dimension exceed the parameters established by the size of the vehicle and the legislation. Special permits are required for the transportation of non-standard (heavy and oversized) cargo. Various equipment, special equipment, yachts and boats, turbines and other large parts of technical equipment and entire factories often fall into this category. Transportation of oversized cargo is carried out by road, rail, sea and river transport.

Each such transportation requires an integrated approach to the selection of special vehicles, route, and method of loading and unloading operations. It is possible to manufacture additional technological equipment necessary for loading, securing and transporting oversized cargo. It is also necessary to obtain permits to transport such equipment.

Consolidated cargo
Small consignments of cargo, the dimensions of which are insufficient to fill the entire volume of the vehicle. When transporting groupage cargo, small consignments of cargo are combined into one consolidated cargo, which will be transported along a specific route.
The delivery scheme for groupage cargo usually consists of several stages. First, the cargo must be delivered from the manufacturer to the consolidation train, then the cargo is processed and prepared for further transportation.
Transportation of groupage cargo is carried out by road (mainly from Europe) and in sea containers (from Asia and Europe).

Sea container shipping – safe transportation of goods

Container transportation allows you to cheaply deliver artificial cargo to popular delivery regions - China, Australia, the USA, countries in Africa and South America, and Turkey. Grand Logistics Company provides a full range of accompanying services for the transportation of goods in containers to 180 countries. Shipping by sea provides safety, security and increases profitability compared to air and road transport. Maritime transport is often included in the multimodal supply chain.

Sea cargo transportation - features of the container transportation scheme

Container ships are used to transport artificial cargo. Goods packaged and distributed in containers of appropriate carrying capacity are subject to simpler processing in temporary warehouses, when transshipped from road or rail transport to sea vessels.

  1. Thanks to the unification of the transport scheme with containers, the time of unloading and loading, accounting, and clearance has been reduced tenfold. Sea container transportation involves the selection for the customer of a scheme suitable in terms of price and timing.
  2. All loading and unloading processes are mechanized.
  3. The work of shipping container ships is organized according to the feeder principle. Sea vessels with a larger carrying capacity ply between major ports - Rotterdam, Hong Kong, Singapore, New York, Los Angeles. Smaller capacity feeder container ships deliver to less congested ports.
  4. Sea freight transportation involves timely information support of the transport process.

When forming a sea container line, managers of Grand Logistics Company take into account such indicators as:

  • the specified volume of shipment and the carrying capacity of the vessel;
  • PRR methods;
  • vessel speed data - the average speed of movement on the sea route from the starting point to the final point;
  • ability to maintain atmospheric humidity; temperature conditions in the holds;
  • ability to withstand weather conditions and other factors.

Advantages and disadvantages of sea freight transportation

  1. The ability to transport a large batch of containers in one flight.
  2. Low cost.
  3. Delivery of containers is carried out taking into account versatility, reliability, and low price.
  4. Mechanization of labor-intensive PRR activities.

Sea freight transportation has several disadvantages:

  1. Relatively slow delivery – from 18 days and above. The waiting time is not only due to the low speed of movement, but also to the formation of prefabricated containers.
  2. Moving cargo between ports. For further transportation, another type of transport is required.
  3. Impact of natural conditions.

We take into account the terms of delivery and return of containers, the freight rate and its validity period, demurrage conditions in order to effectively organize sea transportation - Ukraine has its own port of Chernomorsk, where ships from different countries arrive. We invite to cooperation exporters of agricultural products, oil, distributors and food manufacturers, importers of foreign goods.
