No challenge is too big for Seabourne. That is why Go Set us a Challenge is our motto. Next to our customary courier services, Seabourne also offers specialist on-board courier service. After all, some shipments need a bit more attention. Recently a dedicated Seabourne courier ensured delivery of the world's biggest freshwater pearl to the buyer in Japan. It was the kind of shipment that required that extra bit of attention.
‘The Sleeping Lion Pearl’
‘The Sleeping Lion Pearl’, a natural ‘baroque’ shaped freshwater pearl weighing 118,65 grammes, was auctioned on 31 May 2018 by auction house Venduehuis in The Hague in the Netherlands. In order to take this precious pearl housed in its antique, specially made gilded bronze box to the buyer safely and correctly, the Seabourne courier got on the first available flight to Japan and ensured a faultless delivery to a satisfied customer.
Because that is how Seabourne makes the difference: through its personal dedicated service! Customers always have a dedicated contact person who keeps them informed at all times, all the way from the Netherlands to Japan. Seabourne ensures comprehensive insurance from the time when the article is received up to the delivery, anywhere in the world!
And while the Seabourne courier ensures faultless delivery, the customer can check the status of the shipment at any time. With the ‘Seabourne Pack-Track’ the customer has full ‘visibility’ of his purchase from the pickup of the shipment till delivery at his front door.
It is a great pleasure for Seabourne Group to announce the acquisition today by Seabourne Forwarding Limited of the business and certain assets of our long established franchisee Air Action EMA.
Predominantly a freight operator, but with Courier work too, the business, located at East Midlands Airport, will fit well into our existing portfolio of UK offices in Glasgow, Birmingham and London, not to forget our expanding freight operation in the Netherlands.
Three members of staff have transferred with the business and in addition, Dave Masters, a shareholder of the vendor, will act as a consultant to ensure a smooth transition.
We wish this team every success integrating them into the Seabourne Group and helping grow the business.

Seabourne Netherlands has launched a new product for clients sending critical items: Seabourne Pack-Track.
Just being able to track something wherever it is in the world and see where it moves in real time seemed beyond everyone’s reach only a few years ago. Today that seems straightforward, using GPS trackers which are able to switch to land based systems using mobile phone masts provides pretty much global cover. Seabourne Pack-Track can track camels in the Gulf, lions in Namibia, daily deliveries across the Atlantic and Amazon orders cross-border in Europe. But clients have responded with a whole set of additional challenges; in pharmaceuticals regulations require temperature sensing; in electronics, humidity can be critical and everyone demands security.
Pack-Track can detect temperature, humidity, pressure, light levels and even acceleration. Simply using the light sensor, it even shows where a package had been opened on its journey – hopefully when it’s in the customer’s hand!
Parameters and email alerts are configurable via the web portal for events such as breach of temperature range or shock levels, to accurately track delivery.
High Resolution Accuracy
High resolution with an accuracy of up to 6 metres, our products offers real-time tracking anywhere in the world.
Intuitive Web Portal
The Pack-Track web portal shows tracking history, current location and environmental data of shipments enabling full tracing capability.
The Nieuw Vennep and Eindhoven teams are busy promoting this latest service and we have already got one making its virgin voyage alongside a unique handcrafted staircase en-route to the United States of America.
