Since 1985, Cigisped has offered its clients a wide range of solutions for the shipping of goods, from Groupage service (for small quantities of merchandise) to shipping of complete containers, to ship rental for exceptional transport, project cargo.
Thanks to rental negotiations with major maritime companies and space reserved on the main shipping routes, the company guarantees to ship as soon as cargo is prepared, monitoring every phase of the transport, from pickup to the port of arrival.
Cigisped meets the needs of the Client who has to ship a small quantity of merchandise insufficient to fill an entire FCL container (Full Container Load). In this case, the goods are packed as an LCL (Less than Container Load) - Groupage. Thus the costs of transportation are optimized. The merchandise is picked up from the supplier's warehouse and consolidated on the first container leaving the port of departure. Upon reaching the port of arrival, customs formalities are observed and the merchandise is delivered to the buyer's warehouse in the shortest time possible.
If the quantity of goods allows for loading in an FCL container (Full Container Load), this does not mean that the container must be loaded to its full capacity, but that the volume to be shipped is considered enough for shipping in an FCL container and not LCL to be helpful. An FCL container, usually loaded by a single supplier, in the majority of cases, is destined for a single recipient and thereby optimizes the delivery time of goods to their destination.
For the shipment of the machinery of dimensions unsuited to standard containers, Flat Rack/Platform/Open top containers are used. Cigisped specializes in the transportation of this large or overweight cargo. With its specialized team, it offers help and information about the equipment best suited for shipping the client's machinery in total security, without overlooking the characteristics of the terminal at the ports of departure and arrival and the structures for loading and moving the cargo.
