Container Shipping

When you are relocating from the one country to any other country in the world, you might need to move your personal and household goods safely and securely to the country you will be moving to. The most economical way to move your goods will be to ship them in a container.  This is where Savannah Freight Services comes in. We can arrange the shipment of your goods from any country in the world to any destination in the world

Container shipping costs vary depending on the volume of your goods and the destination country. If you need a quote for shipping your container please fill the form on the right hand side of this page. For example if you are moving within mainland Europe, your goods are moved overland while if moving to another continent  for example, if you are moving from Europe to Australia or from Europe to Africa or America to Asia  in that instance your container will be moved by sea freight. 

Savannah Freight Services is able to provide secure storage prior to your moving of goods if you need to store prior to shipping your container. We can also provide a warehouse where your goods can be professionally packed into the container as well as the staff to provide the packing. We can handle all the packing, haulage to the port and ultimate shipping of the container. However you are welcome to do your own packing, we are able to deliver any empty container to any address in the UK. 

Once the container has been packed we can arrange road or marine insurance to cover your goods against total loss. Here is an illustration what you can fit in a 20ft container   

For a 40FT container you can load all like above and in addition you can also load a single vehicle or if you have two vehicles both can fit however, you will not be able to fit  personal and household goods with two vehicles 

For the actual sizes of the containers please see below:   40ft =12.19metres.   20ft=6.096metres.   


We are also able to provide Less Container Load (LCL) also known as Shared Container / Groupage Service: If you have less than a full container load, you can ship your goods to any destination in the world using our shared container service.  If you aren’t shipping enough to fill a 20ft container, you can split the cost with other consignments. This is a cheaper option for many people who do not want to ship their whole house or are trying to keep the costs down for their move. The approximate transit time for a shared container / groupage service is the same for a FCL door to door depending on the final destination.
