Ocean Freight

Ocean Freight

Ocean freight, also known as sea freight, is the transportation of goods by sea. It is a cost-effective and widely used mode of shipping for both international and domestic trade. Ocean freight plays a crucial role in global supply chains, allowing for the transportation of large volumes of goods across long distances.

Here is some information about ocean freight:

Types of Ocean Freight:

Cost-Effective: Ocean freight is generally more affordable compared to other modes of transport, especially for long-distance shipments and bulky goods.
Large Capacity: Ships have a significant carrying capacity, allowing for the transportation of large volumes of goods in a single shipment.
Global Coverage: Ocean freight services connect major ports around the world, providing access to a wide range of destinations.
Versatility: Sea freight accommodates various types of cargo, including dry goods, liquids, refrigerated goods, oversized items, and hazardous materials. Environmentally Friendly: Ships are considered a relatively eco-friendly mode of transport, with lower carbon emissions per unit of cargo compared to air freight or road transport.

Types of Ocean Freight:

Full Container Load (FCL): In FCL shipping, the shipper books and utilizes an entire container for their goods. This option is suitable for larger shipments or when the shipper wants exclusive use of a container.
Less than Container Load (LCL): LCL shipping combines multiple shippers' goods within a single container. This option is ideal for smaller shipments that do not require a full container.
Breakbulk: Breakbulk shipping involves the transportation of non-containerized or oversized cargo that cannot fit into standard containers. Such cargo is loaded individually onto the ship. Roll-on/Roll-off (Ro-Ro): Ro-Ro shipping is used for wheeled cargo, such as cars, trucks, and heavy machinery. Vehicles are driven onto specialized ships or ferries for transport.
