Cost-Saving Services Tailored to Meet
Your Importing and Exporting Needs



Ocean Program


The SGSA has negotiated ocean freight contracts with several major steamship carriers. Through these contracts, the SGSA can offer reduced rates for full containers—up to 20% cost savings on ocean freight—as well as excellent transit times from Asia to the United States. The SGSA was formed to benefit companies and distributors that import from Asia. Our contract carriers offer multiple weekly sailings. As a customer, you can choose any or all of the several contracts the SGSA participates in on behalf of its customers. And, outside your agreement with the SGSA, you remain free to sign individual service contracts with any steamship company you choose.




Airfreight Program


The SGSA has negotiated an airfreight program with Panalpina to cover airfreight shipments from Asia. Our customers receive reduced rates on international shipments, saving up to 30% on shipping costs.
