Ocean Freight Forwarding

Ocean Freight Introduction

Swift Global Deliveries is uniquely positioned for offering a complete and competitive FCL and LCL product. Swift Global Deliveries’ LCL services range from the coordination of single LCL shipments all the way to multi-country consolidation. All LCL cargo is consolidated into FCL loads at one of our hubs and then shipped to destination, thus realising significant savings in transportation, administration, and handling costs and reducing transit times. Transportation can even be made easier by adding valueadded services such as to-door trucking and customs brokerage.

Global Express Shipping

On selected high-volume trade lanes, Swift Global Deliveries operates a hub and gateway network, using our own controlled capacity through our in-house carrier. By careful selection of airports, and by using our own staff, we can ensure services that are frequent, cost-effective and highly reliable. We also offers airfreight services through our global network of offices. Most of our volume is routed through strategic partners with whom we have deep and longstanding relationships. This enables us to secure capacity, control costs and attain high service levels.

Security

Security is of course our number one priority in airfreight, at our own hubs and at all the other facilities we use. All our hub/gateway warehouses are TAPA ‘A’ and/or C-TPAT certified. We make extensive use of CCTV, and where possible we build our own units supported by photographic evidence of seals and ULD numbers. Pallets are check weighed at origin and destination. Our robust and comprehensive information systems also ensure that security authorities are not confronted with unexpected or non-compliant consignments.
