Minimising Costs by using Container Freight
Working directly with all shipping lines means that we are constantly up to date with freight costs, transit times and routes. Depending on your specific requirements, means we can tailor the shipping process to suit your needs. Container Freight is a shipping option which can minimise costs and ensures your machine arrives safely.
Sigma is a leading container cargo specialist in our field, with flexible and high-frequency sailings across major trade lanes. Our container routes are mainly focused on Europe/Middles East/USA to Far East, with destinations such as Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh, Laem Chabang and Hai Phong.
Small units will either go into a container or on a flat rack. This often will require stevedoring work, to secure the unit to prevent damage and to keep it safe. This is an additional service we would be able to provide.
We cover all destinations across the globe, utilising all forms of cargo transportation:
- 20’ and 40’ Container
- 20’ and 40’ Open Top Containers
- 40’ Flat racks
- Out of Gauge
What Can Our Team at Sigma Do For You?
Our experienced team provides a whole-service offering, handling the entire logistics process from collection of equipment, through haulage, dismantling and packing, to monitoring the shipment progress and updating clients.
Using a wide fleet of equipment in major ports, we can load heavy and wide machines to containers, either using 20 or 40 foot containers, high cube, open top or flat rack equipment. Our experienced load teams will dismantle the equipment quickly and professionally, and securely stuff the containers to keep the goods safe in transit. We have long relationships with crane hire fleets, to ensure reliable service and preferential work slots.
