Thanks to our global network, we can transport your sea freight shipments efficiently and reliably to almost any destination in the world. Whether it's full sea containers (FCL) or groupage containers (LCL): Grodal arranges worldwide shipping for various types of goods. 

Your import goods are also in good hands with us; we will deliver them to the location of your choice.

Full container shipments: Full Container Load (FCL)

Thanks to our independent approach, transporting your goods efficiently and competitively is super easy. Have a large shipment? Then we opt for Full Container Loads (FCL). All goods in the container belong to the same owner.

We can deliver the shipment from the loading port to the port of discharge, but door to door deliveries are also possible. This means we load at the location you designate and unload at the recipient's address.

Partial shipments: Less Container Load (LCL)

If you want to export or import a small shipment via sea freight, then choose Less Container Loads (LCL). Your shipment will then be shipped via a groupage container. You only pay for the part of the container you use. 

To avoid delays and unnecessary costs associated with customs clearance, we recommend you take advantage of our vast knowledge and focus on handling your customs formalities quickly. This makes your goods quickly available for further distribution.
