Sea freight is currently the most popular way of delivering the goods between sellers and buyers. Millions of containers are being dispatched globally every year, stuffed with nearly 80% of the whole world’s trade value. Not surprisingly, sea freight, both full container loads (FCL) and less than container loads (LCL) is the most dominant product in our Company. Allport Cargo Services Poland is the part of Far East Cargo Line, leading NVOCC operator, which yearly volume exceeds 100 000 TEU.
Our main product within sea freight is import from Far East regions. Allport Cargo Services, in China only, operates sixteen fully owned offices, strategically located in main world trade gateways, such as Shanghai, Ningbo, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dalian, Tianjin and Fuzhou. Additionally, we run our offices in Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan. Such a vast footprint in Asia and the scale of business allow us both to negotiate attractive rates with shipping lines and secure availability of space and equipment on vessels for our Customers. Depending on the requirements, we ship containers either to main Polish harbors (Gdansk, Gdynia, Szczecin) or major European hubs (Hamburg, Bremerhaven, Rotterdam), where we arrange all necessary customs formalities, including final customs clearance, transit clearance and through fiscal representation or deferred VAT payment. Along with full container service we offer our own weekly LCL consolidation boxes, with departures from Shanghai, Ningbo and Yantian.
Following a recent change in Polish economy, in a situation when trade balance is finally positive, our Company has consequently concentrated on handling export shipments, both FCL and LCL. Our main interest lies within food and agricultural products, in handling of which we have become experts. Many years of relations with major shipping lines allow us to offer attractive rates together with a security of space on vessels, which on recently fast changing market lets in full control and visibility of shipping processes. As NVOCC, we issue our own bills of lading, which gives our Customers comfort of knowing that we guarantee their contractual interests. We handle both standard and specialized containers, dedicated to oversize or over gauge loads. Thanks to our broad network of own offices and premium agents, we arrange door to door deliveries in every know place in the world.
