Many freight shipping companies operate a one-size-fits-all policy for their own convenience, but reputable freight transportation companies know that this won’t cut it. At Anglo Pacific, we tailor the freight shipping experience to suit your exact international shipping specifications.
We have three primary UK freight shipping methods; road freight, sea freight and air freight. Each customer will find a different one, or a combination of, more beneficial to their specific shipping requirements than another.
Road Freight Transportation
Road freight is commonly used for all UK to UK freight, but it is also an excellent accompaniment to our sea and air freight services for any European or international freight deliveries. Using road freight in conjunction with our other transport methods can speed up delivery times in your end location as well as helping to keep the cost of international freight economical.
Sea Freight Services
Anglo Pacific is one of the UK's sea freight companies that is paving the way for cost-effective international freight shipping services. Our sea freight rates are the most economical of all shipping methods and thus the most popular choice for freight shipping from the UK. Your items are packed into shipping boxes or tea cartons, and based on the number of boxes, we determine if shared or sole-use container shipping is more beneficial for you.
Sea freight in a shared container means your belongings are loaded onto a shared shipping container alongside the goods of other Anglo Pacific customer. You will only be charged for space that your consignment consumes in this container making it an ideal solution for clients seeking cheap sea freight services.
Sole-use container shipping is helpful for large home loads or commercial shipments as you receive a 20ft or 40ft container to fill and flat rate freight shipping applies based on the dimensions of your chosen shipping container.
The average delivery time for international sea freight loads is 6 to 8 weeks.
Air Freight Services
Air freight is the choice freight transport method if you only need to send a small number of boxes, or if you require urgent delivery. The average delivery time for an air freight load is 7 to 10 days, in contrast to sea freight's 8 weeks, naturally, this speedy services comes with much higher air freight costs.
Air freight rates are calculated based on the weight of your suitcases, shipping boxes or tea cartons, therefore air freight is often only utilised when a small number of items are being sent abroad or in emergency circumstances.
Shipping personal and household goods overseas can already be a stressful process without the financial aggravation of hidden costs along the way.
