Our cheap international container shipping rates are available from all the following ports!
Shipping freight from Kaohsiung
The Port of Kaohsiung
is the largest in Taiwan, serving the industrial manufacturing centres of the south; it is easily reached from much of Taiwan via Freeway 1. On the waterfront the 2,200 hectare Linhai Industrial Park includes steel mills, shipyards, and petro-chemical complexes; also locally, the city has aluminium and cement works, fertilizer factories, sugar refineries, and much more. Designated an “export-processing zone” in the 1970s, resulting investments massively boosted Kaohsiung’s capabilities for shipping freight containers from Taiwan – including your very own UK imports from ROC!
Shipping freight from Keelung
The Port of Keelung
in north-east Taiwan was seventh-largest container port in the world in the mid-1980s, but has since been overtaken by Kaohsiung (above). With a coastal breakwater protecting Keelung shipping from the East China Sea, sea freight from Taiwan benefits from anchorage depths of 11-12 metres, and cargo pier depths of 7-9 metres. We ship FCL / LCL consignments at very competitive sea freight rates from this port; 20ft and 40ft containers from Taiwan to UK are always welcome.
Shipping freight from Taichung
is currently the second largest cargo facility, handling mainly commercial cargo (having minimal passenger facilities). Over 13km of wharves serve shipping from Taiwan to the world, so this is a popular port for UK imports from ROC; lying on the Taiwan Strait, this westerly port provides inexpensive sea freight from Central Taiwan. Manufacture of bicycles and sporting goods, small metalworking, plus mould & die working, is centred near the port.
Shipping freight from Taoyuan
Due to proximity of the capital Taipei, Taoyuan City
has become a main receiving hub for cargo to the UK from this northern region of Taiwan. The growth of Taoyuan as a freight handling centre is further enhanced by the growth of “Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport” which moved 2,088,726,700kg freight in 2014 - becoming the world’s 10th busiest. As a major sea freight forwarder from Taiwan to the UK, we find shipping from Taiwan often specifies “TWTYN” as the port code!
