Sea Freight

The market of transport and forwarding services in regions with a developed infrastructure of water transport opens up wide opportunities for business. Considering the transportation requirements that are important for commerce and production, container shipments are in many cases the most efficient delivery tool. Terms, safety, price – the optimal ratio of these indicators for decades has ensured the popularity of the carriage of goods by sea.

The most promising and demanded areas are:

  • Sea freight from Asia
  • Sea freight from the USA

Intensive turnover of products from Southeast Asian countries in Ukraine is possible due to prompt delivery by ships. Consumer goods and household appliances, equipment for production, automation, raw materials and components – the bulk of Asian supplies are realized using water transport. Sea transportation of goods to China is relevant for Ukrainian producers, grain traders and entrepreneurs.

The specificity and volume of the cargo determines the parameters of the container. In particular, for shipment by sea, products or raw materials are packed into containers of various tonnage and dimensions. Depending on the conditions of the order, the freight forwarding company provides the client with a suitable container. To solve various logistic tasks, the following are provided:

  • 20 ‘and 40’ containers (20’DV, 40’DV, 40’HC, 45’HC)

Upon receipt of the goods, the physical parameters of the cargo in the package are measured (tare) and the optimal container is selected. Standard sea containers can be of several types – Dry Van (20/40 t) and High Cube (40/45 t). The former are suitable for consignments of no more than 21-22 t / 26-27 t and a volume of 33 m 3 / 67 m 3 . The second, with increased height, are used for loads weighing up to 28 tons and a volume of up to 85 m 3.

  • reefer containers (20 RE, 40 RE, 40 HCRef)

When one of the main conditions for storage and transportation of products is temperature and humidity, special containers should be used. If the organization of the transportation of bulk cargo by sea takes place, the readiness of the container is of paramount importance. For transportation of food lots, a refrigerated container is used, made using thermal insulation materials and equipped with a refrigeration unit. Due to the correct adherence to technology, food products (fruits, meat, fish, seafood) are in ideal storage conditions throughout the entire journey.

  • open top and flat racks

Open containers with a soft removable roof are used to complete a batch of oversized goods. This design allows loading and unloading through the roof. In turn, the transportation of heavy cargo takes place using open areas. The platforms allow transporting road machinery, combines and other agricultural machinery, large-sized production equipment.

Sea transport of dangerous goods

Any cargo unit associated with risks to health, nature and property is marked as dangerous goods. The regulations for the transport of unsafe goods and substances are formulated by the international conventions MARPOL and SOLAS. A permit is required to move dangerous goods. The ship’s crew must undergo training in first aid in case of man-made disasters, familiarize themselves with increased safety requirements.

I use chemical carriers, tankers or ordinary ships as transport for unsafe goods, provided that they comply with the standards for the product class. Dangerous goods include:

  • gases under pressure
  • explosive substances
  • substances with rapid oxygen reaction
  • flammable materials and liquids (ignition by friction, heating, chemical reaction)
  • radioactive substances
  • other materials, storage / movement of which is associated with risk

  • substances with rapid oxygen reaction
  • flammable materials and liquids (ignition by friction, heating, chemical reaction)
  • radioactive substances
  • other materials, storage / movement of which is associated with risk

Quite often, it is required to combine several types of transportation with the use of various equipment – sea, road, air and rail transport. In such cases, a multimodal delivery scheme is calculated. It is important that the rules for the carriage of a consignment of hazardous substances are observed on each section of the route.

Particular attention should also be paid to the packaging selection process. The packaging material must include a special coating. The location in the container must be in accordance with the picking plan. The container / tank must meet the following requirements:

  • strength, ability to withstand loads
  • structural integrity and tightness
  • protection of contents from leakage, shrinkage, excessive friction

Certification, permits for high-risk maritime transportation includes checking the readiness of the vessel (before loading) for such transportation:

  • availability of fire extinguishing equipment and gas sensors
  • qualifications of crew members in the field of handling dangerous goods, emergency response skills, ability to provide first aid
  • the qualifications of ordinary personnel / instruction on packing and stowage taking into account precautions
  • the ventilation and dehumidification system is in good working order
  • storage compartments ready (clean, dry)

Car delivery by sea vessels

Each commodity group includes certain requirements in the range of safe movement with the preservation of all starting characteristics from the point of departure to the point of destination. But when it comes to a car, here the quality factor of transportation is not just a priority – an extremely careful transportation is required to preserve the external structure and internal working mechanisms. Otherwise, the client will incur huge losses, which are sometimes commensurate with the value of the cargo.

Today, transportation of cars from the USA and China is the most popular logistics directions in Ukrainian auto trading. And here container sea transportation of cars has undeniable advantages:

  • security of valuable cargo

Placed inside a metal box, a well-fixed car is under reliable protection even on the most difficult routes, during storms and weather disasters. This can be transportation to European ports, car delivery from the States or from Asian countries. Here it is important for the client to pay attention to both the integrity and suitability of the container, and the quality of fixation. Installation should be done with load-resistant, high-quality fasteners – hooks, guy wires, bars, etc. Then stability and immobility of the valuable cargo is achieved during the movement of the ship and during loading and unloading operations.

  • safety of expensive models

Container road transportation is especially relevant and in demand when buying expensive models of automobile equipment abroad – exclusive, rare or new models. If you are looking for the best solution for the delivery of expensive cars, then this option is for you. After loading and fixing, the container is sealed with a seal, which is opened only upon arrival at the destination in the presence of the owner or a person authorized by the customer to accept the cargo.

  • professionalism of treatment

When you choose a carrier company to send vehicles, pay attention to all aspects of freight forwarding and customs brokerage. When submitting an application, specify whether the customs clearance by a specialized company involves control of loading and placement, monitoring of movement and insurance services. If escort includes port forwarding

You are dealing with a professional.

Forwarding by GALS MARKET in the seaports of Odessa and Chornomorsk includes:

  • preparation of a package of documents for the import / export of goods;
  • organization of measures for control check and inspection of goods in the customs, quarantine, veterinary and sanitary services of ports;
  • loading / unloading containers on the territory of container terminals, selection of containers;
  • customs clearance of export, import and transit cargo
  • transshipment / reloading to road / rail transport in the implementation of multimodal transportation

  • control of the movement of client property along the entire route

Delivery of goods from Europe

To solve business problems, sometimes it is required to transport small consignments or small-sized cargoes. In such cases, the most priority service is the dispatch of groupage cargo. This type of transportation involves the packaging of cargo units belonging to different consignors / consignees into one large container. The result here largely depends on compliance with a set of measures for storage, packaging, route planning, etc.

Our specialists in Ukraine and Europe know perfectly well how cargo consolidation should take place – the basis for reliable delivery of a prefabricated consignment. Let us recall that the organization of groupage transportation includes a number of stages, from the registration of goods “at the start”, taring, packaging, storage to loading, transportation and unloading. Here it is important to comply with the standards for joint storage of dissimilar goods, packaging requirements, transportation rules, customs declaration and much more.

To implement prompt delivery of groupage cargo from Europe to Ukraine, GALS MARKET has created an effective partner network of transport, insurance, stevedoring and forwarding companies. Consolidation of our customers’ product orders takes place at a specially equipped warehouse in Forst, Germany. We carry out cargo insurance to provide our clients with guarantees of financial protection against risks.
