Worry-free international transport

The customer is king! That is the motto of Robert World Wide Shipping. This maritime shipping agent arranges the worldwide sea transport of Ro/Ro, heavy lift, containers and conventional/breakbulk cargo for its clients. The company distinguishes itself in the market through dedication, 24/7 availability and the ability to fully unburden the customer. Whether the maritime transport of mobile loads such as cars, trucks, trailers and earthmoving and road construction equipment is involved or containers, (extremely) heavy machinery or general cargo and breakbulk: Robert World Wide Shipping arranges the entire international transport from A to B for its clients, including administrative formalities and customs clearance if desired. According to Robert van Straten, his company always aims to distinguish itself in the market through a high degree of dedication, round-the- clock availability and comprehensive transport status reports and by organising the entire transport for the shipper. “As a result, he can fully focus on his core business while we perfectly arrange the maritime transport from A to B for him. We transport cargo to anywhere in the world, only work with reputable companies (First Class Carriers) and always select the best quotes with the best conditions and the best price-quality ratio for our clients.”

Selecting the best option
Robert World Wide Shipping was launched in 2013. Robert van Straten himself however has more than 27 years of experience as a certified shipping agent for international maritime shipments; as
such, he has a wealth of commercial, operational and technical experience in this field. “Bear in mind that this is a highly specialised market which we know very well. We are familiar with all the ins and outs of maritime transport and have good connections with virtually all the First Class Carriers (FCCs). This enables us to offer our clients the best contracts. Of course, the interests of the shipper always come first.” In many cases, the clients of Robert World Wide Shipping can choose from different quotes from different carriers, allowing them to select the best option for them. “If required, we can advise them in this,” says Van Straten. “For example, take a company looking to transport heavy machinery to Asia. This can be done from Amsterdam and Antwerp, but also from Zeebrugge and various German ports. In this case, the difference in price for the transport to and from the port determines the best option.” Robert World Wide Shipping offers shippers added value in other respects as well. “I can state with absolute confidence that we fully unburden our clients,” says Van Straten. “And, because of our competitive margins, at a better price too. In short, we offer nothing but advantages.”
