Sea Freight from China to Mozambique

If you are seeking the least expensive way of shipping from China to Mozambique, sea freight is the right solution. Over 90% of the world’s total cargo is being shipped by sea every year, and its low cost is one of the reasons that contribute to its high popularity. Compared to other forms of cargo shipping services, sea freight is superior economically and environmentally, which is a perfect choice for shipping goods in bulk or equipment of large size, over long distance. Another advantage is, it can transport almost all types of cargo, even those dangerous goods, as long as the required certificates and documents are approved. 

Sea freight, shipping from China to Mozambique by seaFCL and LCL are the most regular sea shipments using containers. 
FCL (Full container load): shipping a container filled with goods exclusively for one client from China to Mozambique. Generally, we offer FCL shipping service to Mozambique with 20ft container and 40ft container (20GP, 40GP and 40HQ). FCL is more cost efficient.
LCL (Less than container load): If your cargo can’t fill an entire container, our consolidation (LCL shipping) service from China to Mozambique is always available, i.e. sharing a container with other clients who have cargo to the same destination, at the same time. Naturally, due to extra work (consolidation, de-consolidation, warehousing, paperwork, etc.), the final cost on each unit is higher than FCL, and shipping takes longer. LCL is a good choice for small business to start with.

When it comes to shipping oversized and heavy cargo from China to Mozambique, flat rack and open top container could be the solution. For cold-chain transportation, we have reefer containers. Breakbulk and RO-RO solutions are often used for bulk shipments, vehicles or other wheeled cargo.
