Global & Iocal expertise

Local or overseas regulatory and political changes.
Any relevant customs procedures.
So whether you’re importing or exporting, working with SWIFTWAYS will plug you into a network of experts across more than 480 offices, planning 200 global routes to 315 ports in over 150 countries, and we’re committed to offering competitive rates and transit times.
Our dry cargo service is the simplest and most common one we offer. It has been developed to ensure the safe and efficient shipment of any containerised cargo.
For most of our customers, this service provides the support and equipment to move some of the world’s most commonly traded commodities such as paper, white-goods and scrap metals; however we understand that not all cargoes are quite this straightforward.
During our 40 years of experience, we’ve learned how to safely handle, stow and transport more complex cargoes, in turn allowing us to extend our dry cargo services to customers looking to ship food-grade, hazardous and rare/precious cargoes.
At SWIFTWAYS we understand that sometimes our customers need to move cargo to and from countries in which they themselves aren’t based.
That’s why we’ve established our local cross trades team, who can help with queries and bookings outside of the country from where your business operates.
What is cross trading?
When cargo is moved between an origin and destination without it entering the country where the shipper is registered it is commonly referred to as cross trades.
