SHIPPING BY SEA
Using ocean freight to move cargo internationally has become an integral part of most small and large businesses today. With over 90% of goods worldwide being moved around through the shipping industry every year, it is the most popular way to transfer large and small cargo from point A to B. Below, are some of the biggest benefits of choosing ocean freight
Cost – For small and large businesses that ship LCLs and FCLs, anything over 200 to 300kgs in weight is very often shipped through LCL or FCL. Container shipments seem to have a different scale of how the cost per shipment is calculated, unlike an airplane. With air freight, your shipment is calculated by the volumetric and chargeable weight; with containers, the more space and shipments you have, the more you will save as a business.
Large and Bulky Cargo – An advantage of ocean freight shipping is the companies’ ability to handle unusually large freight. Such freight may include construction equipment or materials, giant vehicles, and a lot of large scales machine parts. Transporting large parts over the road with ground transportation can sometimes be a big hassle, but is usually a breeze for ocean freight.
Variety of Cargo – With air cargo, there are liquids and corrosive materials that cannot or are very expensive to be shipped aboard a plane. Unlike them, ships can carry many dangerous liquids as well as goods because of the way they are designed
