Ocean Freight and Shipping

Atlas Forwarding - International Ocean Freight Shipping and Transport

By far, ocean freight is the most economical and efficient way of moving goods over long distances. Its estimated that almost 90% of every consumer good or raw material we consume has travelled via ocean container.

We can arrange FCL and LCL shipping by ocean with daily sailings from Irish ports including Dublin, Belfast, and Cork, to the major shipping hubs across Northern Europe incl Rotterdam, Hamburg, Antwerp, Liverpool, and Felixtowe, we can present you with the most suitable and economical routing options consistent with your needs.

In conjunction with our Global Network of partner offices and agents across the world, our deep sea shipping service covers North and South America, Canada, Africa, The Indian Sub Continent, The Middle East, Asia North and East, New Zealand and Australia

In addition to this we also facilitate short sea multimodal shipping across the Mediterranean including Spain, Portugal, Greece, Cyprus and Turkey, Scandinavia, North Africa and The Middle East. In some cases short sea shipping to and from these locations can be more cost effective than road transport.

What We Offer

FCL shipping is the abbreviation for ‘Full Container Load’. When a shipper books a 20ft or 40ft container to use solely for their own purposes.

LCL shipping is the abbreviation for ‘Less Than Container Load’. Traders who ship less than enough goods to fill a container may book an LCL service whereby their goods will be consolidated and share container space with other shippers goods. Much like conventional road groupage.
