European Short Sea Services

Providing flexible freight solutions for containers

Short Sea Services from International Freight SolutionsFor some time now there has been a growing demand for intra-European shipping services, influenced by the lack of truck drivers in Europe, and indeed around the world. Coupled with new disruptions and slowdowns to intra-European trade and traffic caused by the pandemic.

Keeping Europe’s supply chains moving with Short Sea Services

Short sea shipping can be a reliable alternative to road transport across land borders. Containers are more secure than trailers as well as being more sustainable in terms of reducing road miles and leaving a smaller carbon footprint.

International Freight Solutions partner with long established shipping companies, offering economies of scale in order to provide new innovative ways of improving supply chains by shipping cargo around Europe. Using the broadest network of ports and inland connections, spreading from North to South and West to East reaching every corner of the continent, we have got Europe covered.

As a freight forwarding broker IFS always seeks to look ahead to new ways of working, in response to the market and customer needs. We purposely seek out new partners to help ensure that we can provide continuous and quicker flow of your goods across Europe. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we are here to help.
