Overseas shipping

Overseas shipping is the flagship activity of the Somatrans group as it accounts for 75% of the business. A specialist in shipping to the French overseas departments and North Africa from Europe, as well as the Far East (cross-trade), Somatrans also handles all types of freight flows.

We offer several types of services:

  • Full-container load (FCL) transport 
  • Less-than-container load (LCL) transport   
  • The transport of conventional bulk freight     
  • The transport of rolling stock

3 consolidation platforms (Lyon, Marseille and Rouen) are kitted out to ship your grouped consignments.

Our shipping business also handles industrial projects via a dedicated unit, from the transport of civil engineering structures and earthmovers to other bulk freight (OOG or conventional). Somatrans offers you a thorough, optimised analysis of your needs and specifications.  

Somatrans has organised a service to transport personal effects. We handle the routing process and assist you with any related formalities.
