I have no personal experience with seafreight ex-IS, but I have
found this agent very responsive to inquiries by email, skype, or tel:
Adi Sagi, Commercial Dept
Airgate (Israel) Ltd
, 7 Hamelacha Street, 71250 Lod
(Head Office) +972 (0)8 921 9119
Adi direct tel:
+972 (0)3 973 1001
+972 (0)54 232 3864
(Head Office) +972 (0)8 921 9333
(Airport Office) +972 (0)3 973 1003
, or firstname.lastname@example.org
Note that this agency is based at TLV airport and is primarily airfreight , but
any "good" freight agent should be able to help you.
Here is a website link to "all" international sea/airfreight agents in Israel:
A-Z Airfreight Directory - Cargo Agents/Freight Forwarders - Israel
You may want to start with any agent that has an office at seaports of
Ashdod and/ or Haifa.
Also note that "cheapest/ slowest" may not--necessarily--be seafreight all the way from Haifa to Vancouver. It's possible that cheapest may be seafreight westbound thru Med/Atlantic to eastcoast Canada, e.g. Halifax NS, followed by overland trucking to Vancouver. It may also be "cheaper/slower" to seafreight from Haifa eastbound thru, e.g., China, onward to westcoast Vancouver.
good luck--let HUBB know what you find.
