Advice on transport

The transport of your sea freight does not begin and end at the port. Together with you, we will find the ideal route for smooth logistics - from the point of departure to the destination. Benefit from our know-how in this field and trust in our expertise when planning your transport.

Container stowage

There are a number of formalities that need to be taken care of in terms of customs clearance when transporting your sea freight. Thanks to our expertise, you can save time and money and avoid delays. Competence is also required when it comes to container stowage: Transway ensures that your goods are protected against the dynamic forces and external influences of sea transport.


Before your goods can be shipped in containers at a port for sea freight, they first have to get there. Transway is also your reliable partner for organising and carrying out the pre-transport by land for the most sensible way and route of delivery to the port.

Additional transport

By the time your sea freight arrives at the port of reception and is unloaded, it has already come a long way. However, it has not yet reached its final destination. Now it is a question of ensuring that the goods reach their destination on time and in proper condition after unloading at the port of reception. Transway will gladly organise this transport step for you as well.

Cargo Monitoring

An overseas transport requires not only optimal organisation, but also time to cover the transport distance. Damage is often only discovered at the end or completion of the transport. In the absence of freight monitoring, the perpetrators of the damage cannot be prosecuted due to a lack of traceability. With Transway, you always stay in the picture - not only about the condition of your goods, but also about the status of the delivery.

Customs clearance

Transway organises the sea transport of your goods for you and also takes care of the shipment to the port of loading. The latter may differ from the port of destination under certain circumstances. Our team works with selected and proven partners who meet our standards of reliability and punctuality.

Short-term and long-term solutions

Short term Solutions

For over 40 years, Transway has been active as an international sea freight forwarder in the global sea transport business. We organise the entire process for you: from choosing the right mode of transport and loading equipment to seaworthy packing and reliable shipping. Our expert team offers you tailor-made transport solutions - whether full container (FCL), consolidated container (LCL), roll on/roll off, breakbulk or conventional shipments.

The world is turning faster every day, so the demands on the forwarding world are also increasing. With a large number of high-quality and reliable partners, we can also implement short-term transport solutions and deliver almost "Just In Time".

Long term Solutions

Price, duration and special requirements of the goods are the most important factors for overseas transport. In addition, there are legal regulations, peculiarities of the destination or exit countries and a few other things, but thanks to our comprehensive service, you don't have to worry about them. We only involve you in the planning process as much as you want us to and will be happy to advise you on how to handle regular transports particularly cost-effectively.

As a medium-sized company, we come into play with our offer especially when a transport is more extensive, goes to a region with which you have little experience or you need all capacities for what is the core competence of your company.

Here you will find answers to your questions

If you require transport insurance, we will be happy to arrange this for you. We will take care of the complete organisation.

In order to be able to calculate the freight costs as accurately as possible, we need the shipment data, such as dimensions, weight, number of packages, hazardous goods (yes/no), as well as the desired place of departure and destination.

Depending on the desired transport route, we have several services available with both longer (favourable) transit times and shorter ones. Please feel free to ask us about this.

We can take over the complete customs clearance for you, from the preparation of the customs documents to the registration at the port.
