Global Container Services Limited offer direct sea freight services for full containers (FCL) and less than container load (LCL), for both import and export worldwide trades.

We are partnered with our carefully selected exclusive agents, who provide a full booking, Customs clearance and collection/delivery service, depending upon customer requirements.

We can cover any origin and destination, please see ‘Our Network’ page for our main global coverage or call our office and speak to a member of our friendly team.

For FCL, we work with all the mainstream carriers, and we select the best ocean carrier based on the shipment type, urgency, required destination port and availability of services and equipment. We cover all sizes of container, the most common are 20ft, 40ft and 40ft HC. On some trade lines, 45ft HC containers are also available. If you wish to check what size container is suitable for your needs, head over to our ‘Containers’ page where you will find useful information such as maximum container loading weights and capacities.

We ensure that your freight moves as quickly and cost effectively as possible, keeping you updated of the progress along the way through our on-line tracking portal ‘MultiTrack’ and personal updates, we ensure that you always know the status and position of your shipment.

The sea freight services we supply, are always based on any specific requirements as advised, and will be professionally arranged to meet any deadlines and targets that are achievable.

For shipments less than a container load, we offer weekly LCL services on the same key trade routes as FCL. For import LCL, your supplier will simply make the booking with our overseas partner, who will arrange collection of your goods. Once back in our overseas warehouse, your goods will be consolidated with other LCL cargo and booked on the next available vessel to arrive into the UK. Upon arrival to the UK, we will move the container to our local warehouse for unloading, arrange Customs clearance and onward transportation to your door. The process is seamless, cost effective and timely.

We operate directly with exclusive agency offices globally, partnering some of the largest and most reliable carriers in the world.
