Why use sea freight?

Lifestyle Logistics Services offer a comprehensive range of Sea Export and Import services. Our Global network enables us to provide complete worldwide transport and logistics solutions, no matter what the size, weight, origin or destination.

Sea Freight is generally shipped in 20ft, 40ft and 40ft HC (High Cube) general purposes containers. There is also more specialised equipment available such as 20ft & 40ft Open Top containers, 20ft & 40ft Flat Rack, 20ft & 40ft Platform and 20ft & 40ft Reefer container. These are considered to be specialised equipment therefore the rates are generally more expensive than general purposes containers and the equipment is subject to availability.

Roll On / Roll Off shipping is ideal for cargo such as boats, caravans, motorhomes, trailers and vehicles which are generally driven or wheeled on and off vessels. General/Project cargo can also be shipped as RO/RO, which is known as static cargo.

Lift On / Lift Off shipping is idea for large power boats and sail yachts.

  • Per cbm (LCL – Less than Container Load or Ro/Ro)
