Using containers for cargo shipments reduces the risk of cargo damage or loss because the container is made from a resistant metal material that protects the cargo from the influence of external conditions.

Cargo container shipments may also be carried out as road cargo shipments, replacing the standard cargo trailer, thereby reducing costs and increasing efficiency. Container shipments by road are available for all types of cargo.

In order to protect yourself from risk, we recommend choosing additional insurance for sea container cargo shipments.
