Ocean Export: HPS Strength Service
We export 2,000 to 2,500 containers to overseas every month with our group companies. There are not so many Forwarders handling this amount of cargo in Thailand. This large cargo volume handling is enable us to negotiate with shipping companies to obtain a competitive ocean freight.
Also securing the space on the vessel is our great advantage. We may be able to take a case that other forwarders can not take space on the vessel. Songkran and Chinese New Year and Japanese New Year are times when the vessel space is crowded.
It is common that the customers who are troubled with space at these high seasons request the space to us. Of course, it can not be surely taken the space every time, but it is easier for us to have a certain level of flexibility in securing space because of our friednly relationship with the shipping company.
Another example of our flexibility of our service, we usually get booking reservation from 2 weeks to 4 weeks before cut of date. But we sometimes get an bookin request 2 or 3 days prior to cutoff as an urgent special request. Even in this case we may be able to take up space. *depend on the situation.
Strong destination for Ocean Export
We mainly export cargo to Asia, Southeast Asia and Middle East. There are customers with large shipments to Europe but we have overwhelming strengths in Asia market. Also there are many deal with Japanese factories in Thailand, so Japan is the one of the most strong destination for export the cargo.
While these areas are good at it for us, South America and Africa area are not currently handled so much. Therefore, we may not be able to offer much big merit in these areas. As you can see, the forwarders have regions that are good at proportion because of the handling cargo volume.
Cross-Border Track: Malaysia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, etc.
In recent years, our service is focused on cross-border tracks to Malaysia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and Cambodia. We can deliver cargos faster than ocean shipment but its logistics cost is cheaper than air flights.
Especially to Malaysia, there are regular delivery service so that it is possible for us to propose competitive price for customers.
As cross-border truck service is a Door to Door delivery, when compared with Door to Door’s ocean transportation, the price is almost the same but the transit term is around 3 – 4 business days (※ It depends on delivery area).
Normally, in the case of Door to Door transport by sea shipment, it takes days more than 10 days until cargo arrives at the designated destination.

We have an experience of transportation and installation for a large plant and molding machine exceeding 200 tons. In addition, we have removed/installed many machines such as stirrers, conveyors, furnaces and other factories.
Experience and techniques are necessary to move heavy objects safely. We visit and confirm the flow line from the entrance of the factory to the installation place of the machine in advance and move the machine safely using the best tool for each machine.
We will explain firmly to customers who have never dealt with heavy objects. We sometime receive unreasonable requests from customers and we refuse their request which may cause the accident. We have a responsibility to handle the heavy cargo without any problems.
In the case if the an accident occurs, it will greatly influence the customer’s production schedule. The heavy cargo handling is no so easy as you imagine. If it fall down with accident, it takes so much time to recover to wake it up and restore on the place. In order not to do so, we will propose the best cargo transfer method considering safety first.
