Sea freight is a core competence of our group of companies. With over 40 offices in Asia and a global network of selected agent partners, we offer reliable, fast and secure connections. We coordinate and network the cooperation with your suppliers, dealers and partners across continents.
We maintain long-term partnerships with major ocean carriers, which not only enable us to act quickly and flexibly, but which also enable us to ship your goods on time at peak times.
With our NVOCC service we offer groupage services (LCL) for your general cargo shipments from all our locations. Safe and reliable.
With the Sea/Air solution we offer you a balanced compromise between sea and air freight transport. A part of the journey is made by sea freight to reach its final destination in Europe, North or South America from a central hub by air freight.
Are you sourcing goods from a variety of suppliers in China, Southeast Asia or elsewhere and looking for ways to optimize your flow of goods? We bundle your individual shipments and load your own consolidated container. In this way, we increase the efficiency and transport security of your goods flow while at the same time optimizing costs!
Air freight is a fast-moving business, challenging and subject to constant change. We offer optimal and high-quality transport concepts that are carried out quickly, reliably and with Swiss precision. You can choose between a fast premium service or a balanced mix of cost and transit time.
M+R Spedag offers comprehensive and tailor-made solutions for overland transport at all locations.
In Switzerland, we are a leading provider in the field of European overland transport, and with our fleet of vehicles we carry out regular scheduled transport services between our platforms in the Basel and Zurich area to and from all European economic centres. Pre-haulage and final delivery included.
In East Africa, we connect the coastal regions with the inland markets in the hinterland with our own vehicles and use a GPS-controlled monitoring system and checkpoints along the transit route to ensure that vehicles and cargo arrive on time at their destination.
For your sea and air freight shipments from and to destinations in Asia, we naturally also cover the domestic part. Or we can transport your goods from China to Europe entirely by land via the “New Silk Road”.
An important alternative to road transport is rail. In East Africa, Spedag Interfreight forms its own block trains and is thus connecting the hinterland with the coastal regions by rail.
For cargos from China to Europe, the Trans Eurasia Railway, as an excellent and environmentally friendly alternative to Ocean- and Airfreight, connects China with Europe by crossing the vast Eurasian landmass.
Starting from various cities in China, the international Trans-Eurasia train crosses the borders of Alashankou, Erenhot and Manzhouli, travels through Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia, Belarus and Poland to the terminus in Düsseldorf, Germany, from where on onforwarding to final destination can be arranged by rail or road.
The 14-16-day voyage across the Eurasian land bridge, also known as the “New Silk Road”, is the ideal Option to the slower ocean freight and the significantly more expensive air freight.
