Seven Seas Worldwide is pleased to announce the launch of a brand-spanking-new international shipping service called SeaPost. It's different from our other services because it's designed for commercial shipments only.
At the moment, the service operates out of the UK, so if you regularly use a freight forwarding company to send commercial shipments to Australia, New Zealand or South Africa, please read on. You could save yourself a packet.
The major air freight companies all have two things in common - they use the air to transport commercial goods and they're a tad on the pricey side. We're doing things differently at SeaPost. We only travel by sea to keep both the cost down and our carbon footprint small. Also, travelling by sea means we can take larger consignments. Providing you know how to plan ahead, sending your commercial goods by SeaPost is the sensible option for you and your business.
Our existing Baggage Worldwide service sends personal belongings and excess baggage all over the world via our global network of depots but it differs from SeaPost because it requires you to be at the other end to meet your stuff. With SeaPost, you don't have to travel anywhere. We'll take care of everything for you.
Of course, you may be asking 'Why can't I send my commercial goods via your existing service and pretend that they're personal belongings?' Good question. Because it's against the law and you will most likely be caught. If the authorities do inspect your belongings and discover this to be the case, you will incur an enormous fine that will put paid to any hopes you had of making a saving in the first place.
So what do you think? Can we do business? Check out our commercial shipping services today - or just head on over to our section on parcel shipping and find out more.
