Many benefits seafreight

Transport by sea is the most advantageous mode of international transport with respect to the ratio between speed, safety and price. You can ship almost anything ranging from sea containers to goods that do not fit into a container. With the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp within arm’s reach, we can handle all your international shipments.

Global network of offices

Being part of the global Embassy Freight Services Group, we have representatives in over 50 offices in nearly every large port city. If we do not have an on-site office, we will have entered into suitable agreements with a selected local logistic service provider. That way our service level standards remain guaranteed.

Port of Rotterdam

Measuring in at over 12.000 acres, the port of Rotterdam is the largest port in Europe, and the 9th largest in the World!
Rotterdam has been awarded the title of port with the best infrastructure 5 times now!
A total of some 461.2 million metric tons of cargo are processed at the port, which isn’t limited to containers and break bulk, but also encompasses dry,- and wet bulk cargo (Such as oils, biofuels, gas and coal).
Each year some 12 million TEU passes through the port. 105.000 barges and 29000 vessels call at the port annually.
Some 175000 people are employed at the port, which amounts to some 3.1% of the country’s gross national product.
At present the focus of the port is on making operations sustainable. The effects of Climate change are being counter-acted and every care is taken to ensure the port remains a main contributing factor to the Dutch economy.

Possibilities for FCL and LCL

Embassy Freight handles both FCL as well as LCL shipments. Which of these options is the best for your shipment, depends entirely on the weights and measurements of the cargo. Small loads are typically shipped as LCL (Less than Container Load) in a groupage container. Which means that your shipment is consolidated in to a single container with other small loads. You pay only for the space your cargo occupies in the consolidated container, which is calculated on the weight/measure principle.

It’s also possible to ship a full container. Should you choose to ship as FCL (Full Container Load), the container is yours to use entirely, regardless of how much cargo you have to load. The most commonly used container types are 20ft GP container, 40ft GP container and 40ft HC container.
