With over 4 decades of experience of providing first class international freight shipping services, we are a company that has been able to utilise a network of feeder vessels from Ireland via the main European Ports of Le Harve, Rotterdam, Antwerp and Liverpool. From these main hubs, the freight is seamlessly transferred onto their final destination within the optimum transfer time.

The Benefits of Ocean / Sea Freight

Whatever you are looking to ship, choosing to use international ocean freight shipping companies to transport cargo worldwide can be extremely beneficial.

For a start, the services tend to be far more cost effective and cheap sea freight cargo services allow you to consolidate your consignment alongside lots of other containers on much larger vessels, cutting the overall cost of shipping. In addition, ocean freight carriers are more suited if your cargo is oversized, heavy or even contains dangerous and hazardous contents.

What’s more you will be protecting the environment as shipping your products via sea has a lower carbon footprint than other forms of transport.

Why Choose Emerald Freight?

We provide optimised freight services in Ireland and work with our clients to find the most effective way to transport your cargo, wherever you need it delivering. We are a company that provide support from end to end, ensuring safe transfer and seamless processing as your consignment passes through the customs and different ports on its journey.

Our team of agents provide the professional support you need and will organise the transportation and simplify everything for you. All you need to do is tell us the details and leave the rest to us.
