Sical aggregates cargo and ensures safe transport and delivery to its end customers. For storing dutiable cargo there are secure bonded warehouses and for storage, packing and shipping operations open warehouses are used.
LCL or less than container load refers to shipment that cannot fill a standard container. It involves consolidation of cargo from different shippers routed to different destinations. Sical takes over the complete process of handling, stuffing and destuffing and palletized if needed.
Import and Export
While import and export operations not only require customs clearance they also involve plenty of documentation work. Sical has wisely computerized the entire process to make it hassle free for itself and the customer.
Cargo can be of various types including hazardous. Sical understands the care and diligence required to handle hazmat cargo and deals with it appropriately.
Reefer Monitoring Service
Some cargo may be temperature sensitive and require reefer containers. Sical ensures that the required temperature is constantly monitored and maintained during transit.
Some special cargo requires extra care to prevent any damage to it. Sical adopts different security methods like crisscross lashing to secure the container stack or block. Belts and buckles are also used for choking the cargo in the container. Palletizing machines are also used to stack containers on stable structures called pallets.
