Specialist in handling books freight
Due to the fact that books freight is a dense cargo, we are carrying the professional knowledge in handling including receiving, storing and loading into container. The knowledge to precisely compute how much cargo and how many pallets to be loaded into container in order to fully utilize both the weight allowance and space allowance is crucial.
Palletisation for books either in port of origin or at destination
The exact type of pallet to be used is too much important. To facilitate loading and unloading physical handling according to the requirements of supplier and ultimate consignee, we are preparing the exact type of palletization accordingly. In some case, in order to make savings on sea freight cost, loose cartons will be shipped out from port of origin in order to maximise the container space utilization. Upon cargo arrival at destination, palletization will then be carried out in our warehouse before final delivery.
Precise delivery arrangement of books at destination
Before delivery to ultimate consignee, there is always a procedure to make booking with consignee warehouse. We will make the precise booking accordingly.
Speedy delivery arrangement of books at destination
