Container import

Delivery of goods from Asia by a container is the most much-needed service in our company. We find trusted Asian suppliers for our clients and regularly ship large consignments by sea from China, Korea and Japan. Therefore, sea carriers, and we cooperate with them directly, offer discounts to our company for freight and containers. And shipping costs from Asia remain acceptable for small and medium businesses.

More about the service

Container import is an all-purpose and simple option for international delivery of goods. We deliver containers not by sea only but also offer multimodal transportation of goods to owners, i.e. a combination of sea delivery with road, rail and air transportation.

Depending on a task, we select one of two types of general-purpose sea containers for our clients:

20DC (20GP, 20DV) is a 20ft container for small, dense and heavy items;

40HC is a 40-foot container for light but bulky loads.

Sometimes we select high 20HC containers of large capacity, we offer standard “dry” 40DC containers or extremely high-capacity 80HC containers.

To select the size and tonnage of a container, we need to know the type and weight of your cargo.

Cost of delivery cost is individual. To tell a client a specific amount, we need to know:

  • routing;
  • container capacity;
  • type and weight of cargo;
  • terms of delivery;
  • the need for extra services: forwarding the loading process with sending photos, certification of goods, assistance in customs clearance.

In order for us to carry out the delivery of goods from Asia, please inform us:

  • name of company;
  • TIN;
  • address, phone number and e-mail.

You will also need to issue an original power of attorney in favor of our company to provide cargo transportation services. If your cargo is required to be certified, the owner will need to have a certificate or a request to apply for it. A material safety data sheet (MSDS) may also be required.
