With the shift in manufacturing to the Far East and Eastern Europe Seabourne decided to concentrate on commodities that are indigenous to the UK as this would give us long term stability and allow us to concentrate on a product that would not shift its manufacturing base to different countries based on labour costs.
In 2005 we set out to develop the live seafood market starting with the airfreighting of live shellfish into Europe. We spoke to companies that were involved in this business and the general consensus was that they were not happy with how their business was handled. We are proud to say that we have changed the logistics of this business and improved the service levels for shellfish companies that were exporting their product.
As the seafood business grows and the Far East opens up to UK products Seabourne are once again at the forefront of this and we are performing to top levels of on time arrival.
Exporting of live shellfish is a complex and sensitive business and we pride ourselves on our product and logistics expertise when handling this product.
