Container Shipping FCL

Container Shipping


As one of the UK’s leading independent freight forwarders, John Good Shipping provides Full Container Load (FCL) services to and from a wide range of global origins and destinations, including cross trade shipments.


If you’re looking for FCL container solutions, we provide a comprehensive service for the shipment of cargo in 20ft, 40ft and 45ft containers as well as flat racks and open top containers. We ensure the most cost effective routes with transit times to match your requirements. Supported by the latest IT systems, we provide real time visibility for your shipment with direct access to track your shipment every step of the way. We recognise the importance of time, therefore our IT solutions will also give you access to a host of documentation on-line such as Bills of Lading and customs clearance advice.


With expert knowledge of the sea freight industry and with a network of own offices and partner agencies worldwide, you can be sure your container is in good hands.


No matter what shipping terms you agree with your supplier, we can help you at every stage from cargo sourcing, inspection and collection at origin through to delivery at final destination.


As a freight forwarder with over 180 years’ experience and a set of company values which are ‘alive’ throughout our business, we endeavour to provide you with a range of ‘blue sky’, cost effective solutions.


As with our LCL services we also provide customs clearance, insurance and trucking of your container to its final destination.
