Our cost-effective Ocean Freight Charges

Robeck offers the most reasonable ocean and sea freight rates in comparison to the other companies in the freight market. Our shipping offices in South Africa ensure that you receive the most competitive rates compared to other shipping companies in Johannesburg, Durban, or Cape Town. As brokers, we offer freight quotes based on three factors: the product, the type of container, and the distance to be covered.

Before determining the price, the customer must provide full details of the shipment, including dimensions, weight, quantity, and type of the product. Once this data has been evaluated by the freight brokers, the sea freight is determined. Since we operate a container shipping business that deals in both domestic and international shipping, the sea freight will always vary. Durban sea freights may differ from sea freights out of Johannesburg, and those may differ from sea freights out of Cape Town. Additionally, worldwide shipping will have different shipping charges based on the distance traveled.

Freight forwarding rates vary depending on the type of cargo. For example, 20′ containers and 40′ containers will have different freight quotes. If you need estimates, budgets, freight rates, or price updates regarding sea freight, our dealers and managers can assist you at any time.

Safety and Updates

A safe door-to-door shipment service is our promise. Our system incorporates an all-inclusive freight insurance policy that ensures the safety of your cargo. Additionally, shipping container tracking is another service that helps us improve our relationships with customers. In addition to ensuring safety, tracking ensures that the customers are always up-to-date. Customers are notified of lead time and delivery times for the shipment. The container tracking also alerts customers to any delays in the arrival or delivery of the shipment.

Ocean Freight Express

With our ocean freight express services, we are able to deliver cargo faster than usual. This development means that the cargo promises a predetermined lead time. Our fast delivery service is only possible due to our broad network of routes, constant communication with all partners and authorities, and document readiness.

Our Ocean Freight Import and Export procedure

Our well-developed and predetermined shipping system executes ocean freight for exports and imports. When the client requests the import or export of a commodity, our brokers and managers handle the deal. Our managers negotiate the best ocean freight quote with the client, providing them with the incoterms.

Once the quote has been approved, the product is evaluated in connection with the Incoterms. Once the quotation is approved, the product is evaluated in connection with the Incoterms. The product is then meticulously tested for explosives, drugs, corrosives, flammables, or radioactive materials. Additionally, once the cargo passes the security check, the bill of lading and other paperwork is concluded, followed by insurance and shipping.

To ensure the transparency of the processes, all the bills of lading and customs clearance documents are verified multiple times before delivery.

Why Ocean Freight Forwarding instead of Air Freight?

Although air freight forwarding may seem hassle-free and quick, it can cost a fortune. In addition, the terms and conditions of shipping are strict. On the other hand, ocean freight forwarding provides leniency on terms and conditions like the weight and height of the container. With sea freight, you can increase the container size without elevating much of the cost. It is also easier on the wallet, as sea freight rates are lower than air freight rates. One rough estimate suggests that shipping by sea can save up to 25% of the cost.
