Ocean Freight - The RISA Way

We are an independent freight forwarder which means we have the flexibility to choose who we work with overseas; we “cherry pick” the best agents based on local expertise and their strength in the market place.

 

Our network gives us access to more shipping and airline contracts enabling us to be more “creative” with the way we move your freight.  This wider choice of service options helps you decide the best one to suit your needs.

 

Insurance – don’t forget to!

Ocean freight – When cost is the most important factor

 

  • Weekly departures with reliable shipping partners

  • Pre-booked space so you won’t have to wait long for the next available sailing

  • Track record for reliability; our happy customers return again and again

  • Door to door service available for most areas of the world

 

Loading options are as follows:

- FCL (Full Container Load) when you have enough to fill a container with your goods

- LCL (Less than Container Load) we combine lots of customers goods together to fill a container and you just pay for the space you take up

-  Cross trade when goods go direct from the country of supply to another country (not UK)

-  Out of gauge loads when it’s too big, heavy etc to fit in to a container

Containers - although these measurements may vary slightly depending on the shipping line and age of the container, here is our guide to container specifications:
