Sea freight & air freight
The Shipping & Forwarding department of our logistics partner is specialized in overseas shipments, both import and export. Whatever you want to transport - tank/bulk containers, FCL, LCL, project cargo - they ensure the best conditions and efficient handling by using all available lines on all major shipping and air routes.
Because of our worldwide network of agents, we provide you with a complete logistics chain, from producer to end-user (door to door). Our foreign partners communicate with suppliers in their own language and are aware of the local situation.
Like sea and air freight, customs clearance of your goods in the port (or at the airport) is handled by a special department within our logistics partner. They have all required permits and are directly connected to the customs central computer system (SAGITTA). Because they are located at the same location, the lines of communication are short, the involvement with your goods is significant and the efficiency is increased so that the chance of delay decreases considerably.
Export of goods is completely electronic, therefore waiting times for customs doens’t exist anymore. All your orders are handled with care, from an entire container cargo to small shipments.
Castor International can rely on its logistics partner when it comes to transport to your desired location.
Because of this partnership we have:
- palletized goods
- bulk cargo (solid and liquid)
- 20/40 ft. containers
- volume goods (including trailers with double load floors)

Our logistics partner works exclusively with qualified drivers with whom your shipment is in safe hands. Thanks to the separate Shipping & Forwarding business unit, we can work with a large number of regular charter partners. Just In Time throughout Europe is the most normal thing in the world with us.
Castor International offers you the possibility to put our stocks on your site in consignment. You can use as much as you want. We charge your consumption once a month. This way you always have sufficient stock.
