Tailored Sea Freight Solutions: Meeting Your Shipping Needs

At Ziegler Group, we understand the importance of choosing the right partner for your sea freight needs. Our tailored sea freight solutions offer various shipping options, including Less-than-Container Load (LCL) and Full-Container Load (FCL), to meet the unique requirements of our clients.

LCL shipping is an excellent choice for businesses with smaller cargo volumes. It allows you to share container space with other shippers, reducing costs and increasing flexibility. On the other hand, FCL shipping is suitable for those with larger cargo volumes, as it utilises an entire container exclusively for your goods. This option offers a higher level of security and faster transit times.

Our dedicated service ensures that each account is linked to a dedicated individual for personalised service. This means you can expect seamless communication and tailored support to help navigate the intricacies of global sea freight operations. Moreover, having an assigned account manager ensures smooth handling of your shipments and quicker response time whenever required.

In addition to LCL and FCL shipping, Ziegler Group is committed to offering solutions that address the complexities in the sea freight market. We closely monitor the challenges, opportunities, and industry trends to provide our clients with the most effective transportation solutions at competitive prices.
Our dedication to upholding high-quality services is reflected in our continuous pursuit of industry certifications. For example, Ziegler Morocco recently received ISO 28000:2007 and ISO 9001:2015 certifications, illustrating our commitment to maintaining the highest supply chain security and customer service standards.
