In sea freight logistics, Dörrenhaus combines the knowledge of the particularities of local markets with intensive customer care. Via a worldwide network and fixed contracts with the most important ocean carriers we secure capacities at competitive prices.
Needless to say, to us, first-class service also implies the complete support of the on-carriage of your sea-freight shipment right up to the consignee. International shipments require a lot of bureaucratic work. Which import regulations have to be observed, which papers have to be filled out, and what kind of packing instructions does the destination country provide? These are questions we can answer. Therefore you are always safely on track with our sea freight services.

With our proprietary consolidation containers from Asia to Velbert, we achieve the perfect combination of speed, efficiency, and sustainability. The consolidation containers are booked for the fastest departures and planned consistently from Asia right up to our warehouse in Velbert. Here we unload the goods at our own warehouse and deliver your goods using our own truck fleet after customs clearance. This high level of internal service ensures a high quality and extremely short transit times.
We will also gladly advise you on how to organize your logistics more efficiently, e.g. by means of so-called buyers consolidations. Here consignments from different suppliers are pooled to fill your own consolidation container exclusively for you. To do so, various deliveries from your manufacturers are collected at our sites in China and then consolidated to fill an FCL container for you. Surplus can always be added to our weekly consolidation containers as additional cargo so there will be no delays. Put us to the test!
