Ocean Freight


S&R (Marine Services) BV is particularly specialized in special shipping, i/e refrigerated (conditioned/ cooled) and the handling/shipping of out-of-gauge (O.O.G.) cargo.


The food-, confectionary- and fruit/vegetable-industry demands so called reefer-units (refrigerated/ conditioned containers) for overseas transport and S&R is well known in this industry, in a market which is constantly trying to find the best logistical solutions against competitive rates for such a specialism.

The staff of S&R is well trained and regularly updated with the needs of this specific market and therefore of great value to our customers, who often face the “bureaucratic jungle” whilst importing/ exporting food(products), confectionary and fruits/vegetables to and from the USA and during such procedures the knowledge of our staff can be of great benefit to the cargo, leaning on over 30 years of experience.




Handling and transporting O.O.G. (out-of-gauge)-cargo, which is cargo of which the dimensions do exceed the container-dimensions, is, among others, another specialty of S&R whose staff is very experienced with local conditions, permits, restrictions and equipment. Key to handling and shipping these shipments is thorough knowledge of the procedures and processes in order to avoid fines, damages and avoidable delays due to infrastructural limitations from origin (door) to final destination (door).For both transport modules, the in-house know-how is available and the S&R-staff is at your disposal!



There are two basic types of insurance regarding transportation of goods: the liability insurance of a carrier and the insurance of transported goods itself. You can rely on OceanExpress as well as our selected partners to have the correct liability insurance in place.

However this does not mean that any damages, losses or thefts are covered by these insurances. Also the liability of the Beneficiary Cargo Owner (BCO) is not covered without the specific coverage of transport insurance, for example in case General Average is being declared by the vessel owners.


All in all, more than enough reasons for us to recommend our clients to properly insure the transported goods itself, in order to minimize financial risks and to avoid cumbersome claim processes. If required, we can arrange such insurance for you by utilizing our Global Insurance Policy.

This enables us to activate the transport insurance and all related documentation in a swift manner against attractive prices. Insurance of transported goods is only arranged upon specific written request from our customers; please contact us to find out more about our transport insurance services.
