Groupage consignment

Groupage consignment denotes the execution of a transport of goods that are supposed to be shipped from several different senders to several different recipients by truck and ship. The organization and the execution is taken on by one single shipping agent. Transway is therefore the pivotal point that can cater to several customers with one single shipment.

We pick up the products from the individual consignors in advance with several trucks and take them to a transshipment warehouse where to containers with the delivered products are stored. There, they are sorted according to destination references.

Breakbulk

Break-Bulk is the name for especially heavy and/or bulky cargoes, which, on account of their dimensions and weights cannot be transported in standard containers. Here, too, Transway and its employees can draw on many years of experience. Transway has already mastered spectacular shipments like turbines, yachts and oversized machines, in the past with flying colors.

For transport by sea, special heavy cargo ships are used, which mostly have their own cranes for loading and unloading heavy cargo. The shipping of heavy cargo belongs to the most demanding and planning-intensive services in logistics and Transway appreciates the trust placed in us on a regular basis, which we have thus far never disappointed.

20 feet open top container

International sea transport in 20 foot open top container

The 20-foot open-top container is ideal for easy-care goods such as bulk goods or weatherproof general cargo. Compared to its big brother, the 40-foot sea container, it is more difficult to fill in proportion to its volume to weight. It may therefore be worthwhile for you to fill several 20-foot open-top containers to the maximum (up to approx. 21,750 kg payload), instead of just a few 40-foot containers only partially.

We will be happy to advise you on how you can save the most time and money in sea transport and for which goods the open top container is suitable.

Advantages of a 20 foot container

  • better transport due to compact size
  • Loading from above possible
  • suitable for any kind of goods
  • safe and effective transport

Our services

  • Transport to port
  • Preparing your goods for transport
  • Tracking the transport to the destination
  • Customs clearance
  • Reloading onto truck or train for domestic transport

length: 5,9m
width: 2,33m
height: 2,337m
load weight: over 21,000 kg

We know the right contact persons for all types of transport goods and know which customs regulations apply. We can tell you what the situation is like in the country from which your goods come or to which you want to send your goods and, if necessary, suggest alternative routes.

The advantages of a 20 foot open top container

Thanks to their lighter weight and smaller dimensions, 20-foot sea containers can be transported more easily by road or rail to their destination if the infrastructure is not designed for large containers. It also makes it easier to divide up goods between individual destinations in the destination country or to group them together when importing into Germany.

We will be happy to advise you on the possibilities of the 20-foot open-top container and how you can save money. Give us a call!

From simple containers to custom-built containers, they cover all requirements and ensure safe and effective international transport by cargo ship. These containers are designed for a payload of over 26,000 kilograms. In contrast to standard sea containers for international transport, the open top container does not have a fixed roof, but is protected by a tarpaulin. This design is particularly suitable for bulk goods that are tipped into the container from above.

40 feet open top container transport at a low price

Depending on the content, this offers a number of advantages, but these must be exploited in a targeted manner. When transporting by sea, it is not only the weight and dimensions of the containers that matter. It is particularly important where they are stored in the container ship. To avoid contamination or damage to the transported goods, open-top containers should not be placed in the outermost row or at the top. This also applies to storage in the appropriate port in the country of destination. We take care of the complete logistics for you, including packaging of your goods if desired.

When open top containers are the best solution

Depending on the contents and climatic conditions, open containers can be the best solution for sea transport. The lower weight and air permeability play an important role here. We will give you detailed and transparent advice about the options available to you and how best to get your goods to where they are supposed to go.

We have been working as an international freight forwarder for more than 25 years and take care of sea transport to Brazil, China, the USA and from there to Germany.

Our services

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.

Pre-carriage

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 from or to Brazil 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 35 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.
