Sea Freight

Highly competitive rates, complete levels of confidence

You can rely on CTS to deliver your sea freight safely, securely and in a timely fashion

When you ship with CTS, you gain access to many major shipping lines and consolidators, allowing direct access to competitive sea freight rates – across the globe.

CTS offers you a variety of sea freight shipping options including FCL, LCL, RoRo and conventional cargo.

Using our own fleet of vans, trucks and trailers, CTS has the in-house capability to transport your conventional cargo and ISO containers. Our ability to move and load shipper-owned containers means we can deliver flexible and cost effective sea freight services; particularly if you have complex and time-consuming load and stow requirements which can often attract demurrage charges from third parties.

Along with general cargo, CTS is able to move military, Section 5 and UN Class 1 hazardous goods by sea.

As a CTS customer, you can also take advantage of our 30,000 sq.ft secure warehousing facility which guarantees generous space to receive, store, manage and dispatch consolidated sea freight as well as loading and unloading multiple containers on site.

We also work hard to:

  • Offer a rapid-response service so we can act quickly and cost effectively
  • Use our expertise to avoid unnecessary delays or complications, alerts or security/compliancy breaches
  • Maintain a low profile at all times

In addition:

  • CTS staff are security cleared by the UK Government and authorised to transport Section 5 weapons, ammunition and security sensitive consignments
  • All drivers (a number of whom are ex-military) are security trained and ADR qualified for the transportation of UN Class 1 explosives and UN Class 7 radioactive material
  • Every CTS vehicle is specified to safety requirements of EX TYPE II/III for the carriage of explosives
  • CTS offers single and double manned vehicles
