MOST EXTENSIVE MULTIMODAL NETWORK IN AFRICA
Forestgate Logistics Holdings Shortsea shipping Services provide customers with fully multimodal transport solutions from door-to-door, combining sea freight with road and/or rail freight.
Forestgate Logistics Holdings tailors shortsea shipping solutions to suit individual needs, using our extensive network and frequent connections.
When it comes to key factors such as safety, lead time, emissions, and cost, Shortsea shipping is a highly competitive alternative to conventional road transport.
Choose open waters, not congested roads
By switching to multimodal transport, you get the benefits of both worlds. Sea freight gives you security, scalability, and economic efficiency.
Meanwhile, road and rail freight provides the ability to reach rural areas. In times of border closures and high congestion on the roads, the majority of ports and terminals operate on a business as usual basis. This means that your cargo will keep moving if you choose Shortsea shipping.
Scale your capacity
Based on demand fluctuations
Does your cargo volume fluctuate from month to month, depending on the season and demand? By using shortsea shipping, you are able to scale the capacity up and down based on your cargo flows.
Due to the size of our vessel fleet, extensive multimodal transport network, and multiple sailings per week, you will be able to cope with last-minute orders, changes, or delays by adding or rerouting cargo on an as-needed basis.
Choose the green solution
Lower your company’s CO2 emission by up to 60%
Shortsea shipping provides a greener alternative to conventional, inland transport with significantly smaller CO2 emissions per tonne/kilometer carried.
With the right solutions, sea freight can contribute tremendously to reducing the carbon footprint of transportation.
