Choose sea freight: it’s flexible and saves you money
You are going to import a large quantity of parts from China or plan on exporting goods to the US. Shipping by sea freight is an economical option. is this the best choice for your business shipment? It avoids road traffic, but does not move as fast as air freight. Sea freight still requires you to deal with customs, regulations and other administrative matters. How can you ship cheaply if you cannot fill an entire container? Team Freight Forwarding (TFF) has specialist knowledge in the field of sea freight. Whether it’s door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal, we take care of it all for you.
Sea freight containers: FCL or LCL?
You can use sea freight to send large shipments in pallets and sea containers. In principle, shipping is done by full sea containers (Full Container Load) of 20 or 40 feet. If you do not need a full container, you can share a sea container with other shipments going to the same port (Less Container Load) at TFF. This is not only cheaper, but also better for the environment. We would be happy to recommend the right container option for you.

We often work together with manufacturers and suppliers in Europe, but we also produce some products ourselves in our own warehouse in Groningen.
