FastLane Forwarding – New Quotation Request

Shared Container- Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (LCL/GROUPAGE)

Fastlane can assist you in shipping your goods in a shared container from the UK to Addis Ababa (Ethiopia). This service is suitable for personal effects as well as commercial goods.

Once Fastlane have arranged a shipment with you to Addis Ababa, Fastlane will contact you to arrange collection from your house, office or warehouse. However, you are also able to deliver the goods to our depots in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Southampton. Delivery of the goods to our depot will save you some money as it eliminates the collection cost.

The cost of hiring space on a shared container is purely based on the number of boxes/packages you wish to ship and how much space they occupy in the container. Fastlane therefore ask that you measure the items and try and estimate the weight as much as possible before ringing us for a quote. Below is a small guide that might help.

Full container load (FCL)

For clients wishing to hire a full container to Addis Ababa, Fastlane can offer you a 20 foot or 40 foot container. The container will be delivered to your UK address for 3 hours to allow you to load your goods. Please note that additional fee of £50 per hour will apply if you go above the allocated 3 hour loading time. The container will also not be lowered to the ground so you will need to have a loading ramp so that you can lift the heavier items into the container.
