  • Ocean Freight

KC Group Shipping provides you with access to our global network of ocean carriers as well as local landside services such as trucking, customs brokerage and local rail networks. Whether you need to move many hundreds of containers across the oceans and highways, or just a few cubic metres of cargo from your warehouse to an overseas buyer or stock we aim to deliver on time, every time.

We have strategic partnerships with all key ocean carriers and exclusive local representation within Scotland for the Chilean national shipping line CSAV (Compañía Sud Americana de Vapores).


Sea freight is where KC Group Shipping began, and over the past two decades we have expanded our services to make us a force in the freight forwarding market. This experience and our established market position allow us to provide a logistics consultancy service where we endeavour to deliver a commercial saving on your freight spend.

By analysing your current supply chain solutions our highly experienced team can assess productive and less-productive areas, whilst using our partnerships with key shipping lines, we can utilise the data to define your entire supply chain.

Full container load (FCL)

We are experts in handling special cargo needs including pharmaceutical shipments, beverage, dry foods, frozen/temperature-controlled and project cargo.

Less-than-container load (LCL)

Our clients range from some of the world’s largest retailers, to small independent businesses and we endeavour to offer the best rates and the most flexible shipping options for every one of them. Our LCL services include professional packing and reliable consolidation, delivering timely cost-effective transportation solutions, no matter what size of shipment you are moving.

Non-containerised / Break Bulk loads

KC Group Shipping offers break bulk solutions for non-containerised cargo and complex project cargo, across both intercontinental and short sea routes. From collection and safe packing of smaller bulk items, to handling of overweight and out of gauge shipments not suitable for standard containers, we have a tailored service to suit your requirements.
