Container Shipping Service

 

Containerization is a system of intermodal freight / cargo transport using standard ISO containers (known as shipping containers), ITUs (Intermodal Transport Units or isotainers) that can be loaded and sealed intact onto container ships, railroad cars, planes, and trucks.
Containerization of cargoes is widespread worldwide and most all consumer products are now transported by container. Therefore, selection of a suitable container type is fundamental.

We load containers to and from all major business centers in the world. From straightforward dry boxes to state-of-the-art controlled atmosphere reefers, we have the size and type of container to suit your needs. Your cargo is therefore assured a smooth and safe voyage.
