Our ocean freight Team is available to meet the challenges and deadlines of your overseas shipping itinerary; we can ship FCL (full container load) or LCL (less than container load) shipments anywhere in the world - door to door.

Based on carrier routing options, FCL is our best transit-time-to-cost combination product for full container loads.

LCL (Less-than-Container Load)

To minimize your customs issues, Sky One Logistics provides:

 Project Logistics
Project specialists in Sky One Logistics offer solutions for professional handling of oversized and heavy cargo. This coupled with all the necessary equipment and experts to handle the most complex road haulage projects make our company the partner of choice for our clients.
Transportation of odd and over-dimensional cargo to project sites in Maldives as well as overseas, and ensuring that the equipment is duly returned to the principal constitutes the core of project cargo handling. Movement of project cargo requires special equipment and handling, as it does not fall within standard measurement or method.
Sky One Logistics realizes this through the combination of expertise, knowledge, and experience. Our experience enables us to identify the most cost effective route, allowing our client to ensure the timely delivery of their equipment as well as security of it while in transit.
Depending on cargo and route requirements, the scope of services can be extended to encompass inter-modal solutions, as well as customs clearance and reporting capabilities. This gives us an edge as incomplete or wrong customs documentation can cause considerable delay and cost to the delivery process, reducing supply chain reliability.
With the advent of containerization, a major proportion of world cargo in now being transported in Standard units such as containers. However, still a significant volume of cargo (machinery, equipment and building materials) is being transported on break bulk basis due to the special handling requirements owing to the size, weight and nature of these items.
