Ocean Freight

CDC Italia’s 30+ years experience in international shipments makes us the ideal partner for shipping by sea.

Shipping freight by sea is the ideal solution for transporting big loads that have a long way to go. CDC Italia is able to ensure our clients non-stop, high-quality assistance thanks to agreements made with major maritime transport companies, the most efficient vectors in the world, highly specialized personal support, and our offices around the world. We offer flexible and competitive services even in peak season.

We keep four basic values in mind in our work: competitiveness, practicality, transparency, and trust. Our tracking system provides logistics support with industry experts and our quality procedures aim at making the customer logistics process highly efficient by speeding up paperwork; all operations are made quick and easy using a customer login and personalized password (which can be changed periodically). Before departure, you can see the status of your order before it’s loaded via order number or supplier name. You can check:

  • when your supplier is ready;
  • when your freight is loaded;
  • when it will be shipped;
  • the name of the ship and bill of lading.

When the freight arrives at its final destination, a special optical filing system allows you to print from your own computer:

  • the supplier invoice;
  • the packing list;
  • the bill of lading.

These data make it possible to complete all the import customs procedures long before the shipment arrives at its destination. This is how we help our clients with many logistics procedures, which in turn gives them time to concentrate on other business. CDC clients have an advantage on time, less hold time in the warehouse, simplified administrative paperwork, and better communication. This lowers logistics costs, increases work quality, and increases client satisfaction.

Full container load shipments by sea have an additional road and/or rail service to accommodate every departure and destination point. This is the perfect option for shipping large loads.
