Sea Freight

Ocean Cargo from and to Thailand



To and from Thailand, the most commonly used solution to ship goods is sea freight. Although with this means of transport, the routing is longer, it remains much more advantageous in terms of cost.


Sea freight is divided into two parts, Bundling (LCL) and complete container (FCL).


Bundling (LCL):


When the volume shipped is less or equal to 15 cubic meters, the goods shipped will be grouped together, ie "mixed" with other goods from other shippers. The goods are then transported to a common area, usually the most important port in the region, before being distributed on different trucks or boats that will take them to their destination.

Beforehand, a number is assigned to the goods of each shipper so that it can be directed to the right destination, and be followed by each freight forwarder company.

The complete container (FCL):


For shipments, larger than 15 cubic meters, the best solution is to fill a full container. There are three different containers:
