Containers: transport units suitable for most commodities

From Peru to Asia, Asia to Europe, or Africa to North America – with STS, you’ll always be right on track.

Depending on your requirements, we’ll arrange a full container load (FCL) or less than container load (LCL) for you.

Most of the products we ship travel in an FCL. However, LCL is more suitable if your goods won’t fill an entire container. In such cases, the container is filled with various different loads and you can benefit from particularly attractive shipping conditions.

No matter whether you’re interested in traditional trade routes or niche solutions: we’ll find the best way to deliver your goods in a safe, reliable and economically efficient way.
