Imports and exports

We have dedicated teams for both imports and exports via sea freight shipping and have great experience at importing and exporting a range of goods from a variety of industries; from beauty to aerospace. No task is too big for our team and we’ll work closely with you to ensure a smooth service from the word go.

LCL and FCL shipments

Our teams can cater for both LCL (less than container load) and FCL (full container load) shipments so there’s no need to worry about the size of your import or export. If you’re looking to move an LCL shipment, we’ll consolidate with other freight to help minimise costs. If you are after an FCL shipment, we can get these to your destination that bit quicker.

Conventional and out-of-gauge loads

Whether your freight fits a conventional sea container or requires out-of-gauge solutions, Seaspace International can help. We have a range of options available and will always take cost and deadlines into consideration; nothing is too out of the ordinary for us.

Import customs clearance

Don’t let customs clearance slow you down; our import team have extensive experience at dealing with sea freight imports and can help get your goods over the border quickly and with minimal fuss.

NES export declarations

Seaspace work closely with the National Export System (NES) to help get sea freight shipments declared in the right, official way. We’ll take the pressure off you and ensure all documentation is in place in adequate time.
