Phoenix provides extensive, worldwide sea freight services for both LCL and FCL consignments. Discounted trade contracts plus a range of service options enables us to deliver a very cost-effective alternative to airfreight, especially when delivery schedules are less constrained.
Weekly consolidations operate to all major sea ports and backed up by a robust transport network and reliable partners, we can achieve impressive door to door transit times anywhere in the world.
Most shipments are containerised with 2 standard options:
LCL - Less than Container Load
Like airfreight consolidation, consignments are consolidated with others in a container for delivery to the same destination port. Moving on a House Bill of Lading, the shipping price is proportionate to the space/weight taken in the container.
FCL - Full Container Load
The whole container is dedicated to the customer at an agreed fixed price lump sum. Therefore, the more the customer can load, the cheaper the shipping price per unit. The container moves under a Master Bill of Lading in the name of the Customer.
Out of gauge cargo can be shipped using specialised containers such as Open tops or Flat Racks. We also arrange ship charters for project cargo.
