We manage hundreds of thousands of containers, also known as TEUs, every year - to and from Asia, Europe and North America. Our employees are intimately familiar with all the local customs laws and regulations - saving you time, money, and ensuring your sea freight shipments reach their final destination safely.
OCEAN FORWARDING AND TRANSPORTATION
We have strong working relationships with the largest ocean carriers in the world, which enables us to offer flexible routing and multiple ocean transportation options for both part container (LCL) and full container (FCL) movements. In addition, SEKO provides consolidation and de-consolidation of ocean shipments at origin and destination, to optimize your supply chain and deliver a full range of Global shipping logistics.
SUPPLY CHAIN VISIBILITY
We stand alone in the sophistication and performance of our tracking and tracing capability thanks to MySEKO, our online customer portal and software for freight rate management. MySEKO lets you track your ocean and sea freight from origin to destination, giving you access to view and upload all necessary documentation, and to receive status updates via email and configurable reports. We also provide ocean carrier logistics management for your direct contracts with the steamship lines.
NVOCC MEANS FREEDOM AND FLEXIBILITY
Because SEKO is a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier (NVOCC), we’re not locked into strict sailing schedules. That gives us the freedom and flexibility to schedule your ocean freight on a variety of steamship lines, enabling us to find the vessel and the sailing time that best meets your ocean freight shipping needs and budget. And because we can pick and choose our carriers, we can access more ports, more cost effectively than vessel operating carriers. SEKO keeps an eye on ocean freight schedules on your behalf, making ocean shipping as straightforward as possible.
DEDICATED LCL CONSOLIDATIONS
Steamship lines are not interested in handling small shipments. But with our dedicated Less than Container Load (LCL) consolidations from origin, we can consolidate your LCL orders and give you the same international shipping rates and service advantages that larger companies get. We’ll also give you one single point of contact for your ocean freight right through to destination.
PURCHASE ORDER MANAGEMENT
Our in-house developed, online PO Management System keeps you informed on where your containers are, where they are going, where they are stored and when they have arrived. From any location, ocean transportation is easy and effortless.
WE SPECIALIZE IN SPECIAL HANDLING
We offer all sorts of project cargo shipping services, including break bulk and RO/RO (Roll On/Roll Off shipping), and we deal in all manner of sizes and weights for specialized cargo. Contact us with your specific requirements today for a shipping quote.
