Sea Freight - The Main Mode of Transport


Sea freight is considered the main mode of transport when it comes to goods shipments. In cross-border traffic, about 90% (based on weight) takes place by sea. In 2020 alone, sea freight achieved a global trade volume of 11.5 billion tonnes with the trend rising. Worldwide, these goods are most frequently transported by general cargo ships. They are closely followed by bulk carriers and crude oil tankers. In the last 20 years, the number of tonne-miles has at least doubled. By 2024, it is expected that around 11.4 billion euros will be generated in Germany from sea freight alone.




International Sea Freight Transport

Ship your goods world wide with Freightfinders and profit from favourable offers and long-term experience. Your sea freight will be shipped from Hamburg. Because of our good forwarder-network, we can transport your cargo form the requested location and carry it to Hamburg easily. We are an internet sea freight forwarder, taking care of all the procedures from pre-carriage, the container shipping process and on-carriage, up to customs clearance.





FCL and LCL Sea Freight

Here, you can find a place for all kinds of goods, as we are offering FCL and LCL sea freight containers in different sizes, such as 20ft. containers or 40ft. containers. If you wish to use a FCL transport, only your goods will be placed in the container, which enables protection of your goods from outside influences.

For a more favourable kind of transport, you can select the LCL sea freight. Here, your goods will be loaded with goods from other customers into one container. Thereby, the costs are shared. Please know that this type of transport takes a bit more time, as there are handling periods to be considered.

Shipping Cars in a Container

Shipping Vehicles via RoRo Ship

At Freightfinders, in addition to the car container, you have the possibility to ship your vehicle with a RoRo ship. This option is mostly fast and also the most favourable one, but does not provide protection against external influences.


Additional Services


Container Loading and Load Restraint of Your Sea Freight

Save sea freight costs through professional load restraint and container loading. A load restraint done by experts helps, protecting your goods during the transport. Efficient stowage plans can guaranty fast loading and maybe even safe some space.


Transport Packaging of Your Sea Freight

An important point for the safety of your cargo is transport packaging. Professional packaging protects your goods from outside influences and, thereby, minimizes the risk of damage. Our partners can create individual transport packaging for goods of all kinds.


Sea Freight Insurance

It is often underestimated, who is held responsible for the liability and for what. The limited liability of carriers leads mostly to you, paying for your damaged goods, but also e.g. for damages done to the ship by your container. To spare you this nuisance, we offer you the possibility of covering a sea freight insurance right over our platform.


Sea Freight Customs Clearance

Customs clearance plays an important role for the border-crossing trade. Therefore, you should not leave this task to chance, as e.g. mistakes, the lacking of documents, or exceeding the term can turn out very time-consuming and expensive. This is why, we are working together with experts in this field, who have long-term experience and knowhow, and can simplify the process of customs clearance.
