One-Way Move (Cabotage)

Trade imbalance has been an inescapable part of the container shipping industry since its origin, often generating significant out-of-pocket expenses for those involved. A one-way move can avoid the cost of empty transport of a container once freight is delivered.

At Seaco, we offer customers the opportunity to lease a container which can be picked up at one location and returned to another location, subject to Seaco’s terms and conditions. Both parties can benefit from the One-Way move, both in terms of streamlining operations and reducing cost, although the concept may not be possible on every route.
