How we can help with packing for export

If you plan on exporting goods, you’ll need to consider all the stages involved. First, you’ll need to book a shipping line or alternatively make arrangements with a freight forwarding company for your intended export. Next, you’ll need to make the necessary arrangements for your cargo/goods to be delivered to a depot for packing. Finally, packing needs to be done in an efficient manner to make the best use of the space available in the shipping container. DNV Transport have the expertise and equipment to help you at every stage along the way.

Once you have booked your export, you will need to collect your assigned container from the shipping line. We can pick up your 20-foot or 40-foot container from the shipping line using one of our own trucks and trailers from our fleet. We then transport your container back to our yard for packing. This makes it easier for you to organise all your deliveries because you can simply give them our site address.

Once we receive your cargo or goods our trained team will pack them in the most secure way that makes the best use of space for your container. We’ll then make sure your container gets to the wharf on time to meet the deadline for when the ship is due to depart.

  • Importing

    One of the biggest challenges when importing containers is unpacking the goods and finding a suitable location to store the contents. We can solve this challenge for you by unpacking your container at our site and storing loose items in our warehouse. From our warehouse, we can then distribute your items to any third-party site when required.

    If you don’t have space or the necessary labour to unpack a full import container, we can do it for you. We can deliver your goods to your site via our Tautliner. This is ideal for shop fronts that do not have a warehouse or any space to leave a container on site. A Tautliner trailer has curtained side panels which allow easy access for unloading cargo.

  • Exporting

    If you would like to consolidate your cargo items, we can store them in our warehouse until there is enough to fill an export container ready for export. This is more cost-effective than sending a half full container. Because you’re paying for the container space required on board the ship you pay for a container move whether it’s full or half full.

How we can help with unpacking for import

Once you receive notice of your ship’s arrival date and port destination you can let us know so that we can arrange pick up for you. After we collect your container or cargo we can take it back to our yard, do the unpacking and provide warehousing and distribution services if required.
