Transport & Shipping

Sea Freight

Sea freight is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to road transport. The SSL team can arrange both door to door short sea and deep sea movements, as well as LCL shipments. Containers can be fitted with our GPS tracking locks to check the door status and for real time geolocation.


Road Freight

Using our vast network of experienced partners SSL offers road freight solutions for full loads, groupage and part loads covering the UK, Europe, Russia and all Central Asian States. We specialise in high value cargo and offer 24/7 cargo monitoring and TAPA certified services. If cargo needs to transported urgently, we also offer small express vans in addition to full size trucks.
