Seafreight:  No matter how complex your shipping problems, our friendly team has the industry knowledge and expertise to solve problems and provide solutions to your freight challenges.

At Thunderbird Freight we know how important it is to keep your costs down.  By using a variety of carriers, prioritising transit time and cost, we can plan the most cost effective 'door-to-door' sea transport solution to get your goods to their destination safely and on time.

You can choose either the Full Container Load (FCL) option or our Part Container Load (LCL) option where we transport your goods with other customer's goods bound for the same destination, saving you both time and money.
