Our dry cargo service is the simplest and most common one we offer. It has been developed to ensure the safe and efficient shipment of any containerised cargo.
AAAFor most of our customers, this service provides the support and equipment to move some of the world’s most commonly traded commodities such as paper, white-goods and scrap metals; however we understand that not all cargoes are quite this straightforward.
During our 40 years of experience, we’ve learned how to safely handle, stow and transport more complex cargoes, in turn allowing us to extend our dry cargo services to customers looking to ship food-grade, hazardous and rare/precious cargoes.
When we transport your hazardous cargo, we take the whole supply chain into consideration. From offering specialist training to our drivers, to the careful planning of container stowage on our vessels, we’ve established our operations to limit the risks associated with this type of cargo. Visit our hazardous cargo page in the Industries section to read more.
We have an extensive inventory of reefer containers for food products that require refrigeration or freezing during transit. We also prepare our standard containers for other food-grade products to ensure we maintain the optimum condition of your cargo. Each container is dehumidified, offering you peace-of-mind that we can deliver your cargo in the same condition as it was received. For more detailed information visit our food and drink cargo page in the Industries section.
