What is Sea Freight Shipping?

Where is Your Cargo Going?

Sea freight shipping is the process of transporting cargo or bulk goods overseas by boat. Your cargo is carefully packed and the container is loaded onto a ship to be transported anywhere in the world.

This is a good option for any sized exporter. Sea freight gives you access to places that aren’t accessible by aircraft, such as Antarctica or the Falkland Islands. Although not as fast as air freight, it is a reliable service choice for blue chip companies and SMEs.

Container Loading

From Poole or Southampton to the Rest of the World.

John Pipe International take great pride in packing your goods to a high standard. We offer case-making and foil packing services, tailored to your needs. We care about your customer just as much as you do, which is why we also take great care when packing your goods.

Our years of experience has helped us hone our skills to give your cargo the best protection. All of our export packing is uniquely designed to be a perfect fit for your items. Every wooden case, cardboard box or packing solution is built for you – we’ll never take a ‘one box fits all’ approach.
