Is LCL sea freight a cheaper way to ship from Turkey?

Yes, LCL sea freight is a cheaper way to ship from Turkey compared to traditional trailer operators. By consolidating multiple smaller shipments into one container, LCL sea freight allows for cost savings as you only pay for the space your cargo occupies rather than for a full container. This makes it a more cost-effective choice for shipping smaller quantities of goods from Turkey to the UK. Additionally, with our customs clearance and VAT & TAX payment services included, the process is simplified and streamlined for your convenience.

Is Turkish LCL sea freight better for the environment?

Our LCL sea freight service not only offers cost savings compared to traditional trailer operators, but it is also a more environmentally friendly option.

When comparing the carbon emissions of moving 10,000 KGS from Istanbul to Felixstowe, sea freight produces significantly less CO2e than road transportation. This means that by choosing our Turkish LCL sea freight service, you are not only saving money but also reducing your carbon footprint.
