Experience safe and damage-free container transport of your sea freight

With sea freight, as with any cargo, Van Thiel Transport looks at which type of transport suits your goods. Think FCL, LCL, conditioned transport, but also special packaging for fragile goods. Thus, we ensure that your goods arrive at their international destinations safely, damage-free and in top quality.

As soon as your goods are ready, we will pick them up from you to take them to the port. We drive up a container and deliver your goods door-to-door. Or we pick up your goods in a regular truck and transfer them into a container suitable for your sea freight.

Sea freight unloaded, stored, cleared and forwarded economically

Van Thiel Transport handles many hundreds of cargoes of international sea freight entering Europe every year at the ports of Rotterdam (Netherlands), Antwerp (Belgium), Algeciras (Spain) and Felixstowe (UK). This extensive experience has allowed us to build close relationships with partners in the logistics chain. Our short lines of communication allow us to act quickly. This ensures reliable and smooth receipt and delivery of your goods.

Unloading, storage, clearance

When your sea freight arrives at the port, it will be unloaded or stored, for example in one of Van Thiel Transport’s partner cross-border warehouses or bonded warehouses. This depends on the final destination of your goods.

When your product enters the European market, it is unloaded and cleared by the driver. During customs clearance, customs formalities are handled. This applies to goods imported from outside the European Union.

Economical custom delivery to all destinations in Europe

After clearing and unloading, Van Thiel Transport ensures custom delivery of your goods, anywhere in Europe. The container is transported directly, door-to-door, to its final destination (Full Container Load). Or the cargo is transferred to a road transport most suitable for your cargo (Less Than Container Load). With each incoming container, we calculate which option is most advantageous for you.

Container transport of sea freight well organised and clearly agreed

Documents: avoid delays and costs in customs clearance

Van Thiel Transport ensures that all the documents for your shipment are correct, so that everything is in order during customs inspections. This prevents delays and extra costs.

Incoterms: agreed delivery terms for your container freight

The last thing you want with your container transport is (financial) damage. Incoterms offer you tools for making agreements. Van Thiel Transport can advise you on this.

Incoterms relevant to container transport are FCA-A (for FCL), FCA-B (for LCL), CPT, CIP, FAS, FOB, CFR and CIF.
