How to Calculate Sea Freight Rates

Sea Freight ServicesSea freight is a great mode of transport if you have large or several items to send – particularly overseas. There are a number of companies out there who offer sea freight services, and while some offer what looks like good deals and cheap prices, you need to ensure that you are getting the best service.

Pick the Best Freight Option

Most other freight options are calculated by the volume of the shipment, however, sea freight shipments are usually charged per cubic meter. Before you get in touch with us at Pronto Delivery to discuss sea freight shipping, you will need to establish the size of your shipment so that we can appropriately calculate sea freight rates for you.

Although most companies choose to ship a consignment which consists of a number of individual packages, we at Pronto Delivery would always advise that it is much safer to palletize your items. To do this, we would suggest gathering your packages and placing them onto a strong wooden pallet base before wrapping and strapping them all together. This process means that they are built into a large single unit. This process also works out cheaper as your items can be grouped together to result in less cubic meter.
