Container shipping

We provide container shipping services using containers using the standard sizes ranging from 20 foot (6.09m) to 53 foot (16.15m). These sizes have been standardised for easy stacking and transportation and has now been applied globally across all industries. These containers can be moved seamlessly into and in between ships, trucks and trains. The most commonly used sizes are the 20 foot and 40 foot containers, the 20 foot container is now referred to as Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) and is now an industry standard reference for cargo volume and vessel capacity. The 40 foot containers (FEU) is more frequently used and provided by us.
