Sea Freight;

UMS has experience in selecting the best service and routing to ensure that our clients receive the optimum benefit between service and price. UMS are able to provide a cost effective range of sea freight options.

UMS are able to provide a service that are for clients who are looking to ship part loads (LCL or BB). Collection can be arranged with all EU countries as well as from North America, Australasia and West Africa.

UMS also has experience in delivering shipments by container. If required, we can procure containers to give our client security when delivering goods into landlocked countries such as those in Central Africa. In these situations, shipper owned containers provide a one-way transport cost benefit. Equipment such as high cube and open top container can be organised for equipment that is not suitable for standard 20’ or 40’ containers.

For shipments that are too bulky for containers, UMS can arrange for goods to be shipped on conventional cargo vessels.

We are therefore able to choose the best option for any given route, providing a balance between quality of service and cost.
