Sea freight is the perfect freight forwarding service for larger goods or items that do not require a specific arrival time. Sea freight can accommodate for some of the largest items such as construction equipment due to its storage capacity. Tuscor Lloyds take pride in being able to move your cargo to the most ‘unreachable’ destinations in the world.

We are a top freight forwarder to Asia, North & South America, Australasia, and other locations nearby, shipping to literally hundreds of ports globally! Sea Freight, often known as ocean freight, is shipped cheaply by Tuscor Lloyds to all parts of the globe. Our specialty is shipping freight from the UK to other parts of the world.

Despite the fact that sea freight has been around for centuries, international container shipping has completely changed the industry and significantly cut expenses. We are pleased to take LCL (less than a container load) shipments as groupage shipping; you don’t even need to fill a 20- or 40-foot container. Our affordable overseas shipping prices are even more affordable because your pallet or carton delivery is combined with other cargo being shipped from the UK to your destination port.

Ship Chartering

In the shipping business, chartering is the practise of a shipowner renting out the use of their vessel to a charterer. A charterparty is the name of the agreement between the parties. 

For special heavy cargoes, Tuscor Lloyds call upon specialist and fully compliant lift vessels which are full compliant and classified to make loading / unloading simple and efficient.
