Sea freight is the most economical way of sending large volumes of goods internationally. Instead of shipping by weight, sea freight prices are based on volume. Yes it’s much slower than Air freight but when you’re relocating to a different continent its the only logical way to transport all your belongings.
Sea freight pricing is based on the volume of goods which is calculated in cubic meters. It’s quite difficult to estimate this if you’re not used to doing it on a daily basis. We have included a few graphics to help give you a rough idea. (The shape of the crate does not have to be 1 meter by 1 meter it can be any size it is only the volume that is calculated.).
Our USP consultant have years of experience and will make all the measurements and calculate the volume of space needed during your Free Consultation.

Containers come in a wide variety of formats, depending on what you need to ship. The majority of sea cargo is transported in either TEU (twenty foot equivalent unit) or FEU (forty foot equivalent unit) containers.
By far the most common container used for personal moves are the standard 20 foot & 40 foot fully enclosed containers (size + dimensions above).
You can share a container with other people as long as your container is going to the same port. This is classed as LCL (Less Container Load).
We handle the complete process from collection to wrapping your goods for safe shipping, we can store your goods in one of our storage facilities until such time as it’s ready to be shipped.
With our LCL (part container load) service, you don’t need to have enough cargo to fill a whole container in order to get a beneficial shipping rate. But if you do, we also offer FCL (full container load) shipments.
A competitively priced consolidation product, LCL offers the highest levels of schedule integrity.
Based on carrier routing options, FCL is our best transit-time-to-cost combination product for full container loads. FCL offers complete schedule flexibility, a high frequency of sailings per port-pair, and availability of equipment.
Even if you live close to the destination port, you’ll need a licenced freight company to receive your goods at the port and arrange the final leg of the journey.
We provide Port to Port, Door to Port and Door to Door options for Sea Freight. Although the cost of land transportation in Thailand is so affordable and as it’s vital to have your items professionally packed before shipping, we collect 99% of the items directly from our customers.
It’s tempting to think that you may be able to organise the pick-up and home delivery for less than we can. But this is rarely the case. Here’s just few reasons why:
