Sea freight to Israel is one of the many transportation services we have been offering for years. Recently and thanks to the addition of a new agent in Tel Aviv we have improved all our shipping services to the country.
Sea cargo always requires big volumes. Because of that we always speak in sea freight shipping we about groupage and containers and not so much about packages. If a load is not large or heavy enough to use a full container, groupage is required to save on costs. In any case, we recommend the minimum volume to be, at least, 1 cubic metre.
Sea freight to Israel is one of the best options for very bulky or heavy shipments or for those suitable for distribution by adding up large quantities. As you can see, size matters, especially in this type of transport as it is the one that offers the best volume/price ratio.
Sea freight to Israel has very competitive transit times, from Barcelona and from Valencia we manage direct services that connect the two countries in only 7 days of crossing, so it is slightly higher than air freight transport with significantly lower costs.
The reduced costs of sea freight to Israel
If you’re and importer or exportar in Israel, we have great news. The country keeps many shipping offers and therefore freight costs are very competitive. Even for regular shipments throughout the year lower rates are usually available.
In addition, Israel has an agreement with the European Union so that goods imported into the country have tariff benefits. This means that the customs have very low tariff rates or are duty free.
This does not mean that there are no costs in addition to the freight. In sea freight shipping there are always costs such as loading/unloading the ship, transfer to terminal, the bonded/deconsolidated warehouse, and so on. A series of costs that make sense in this services and are needed so the logistics chain is complete.
