What is Ocean Freight Shipping?

Ocean shipping, also known as sea freight, is a method of transporting goods via ships across the world's oceans. It plays a vital role in global trade, facilitating the movement of goods between countries and continents. Despite its longer transit times compared to air freight, ocean shipping remains a preferred choice for many businesses due to its affordability and capacity for large-volume shipments.

Frequently Asked Questions

International freight shipping involves transporting goods across borders via various modes such as ocean, air, or land transportation. It facilitates trade between countries by moving cargo efficiently and securely.
International freight shipping can be conducted through ocean freight (sea), air freight, or land freight (rail and trucking). Each mode offers different advantages in terms of speed, cost, and suitability for different types of cargo.
Shipping costs for international freight are typically calculated based on factors such as the weight and volume of the cargo, the chosen mode of transportation, the distance traveled, fuel prices, customs duties, and any additional services required such as insurance or packaging.
The documents required for international freight shipping vary depending on the destination country, the nature of the cargo, and the chosen mode of transportation. Common documents include the commercial invoice, bill of lading, packing list, certificate of origin, and any required permits or licenses.
The transit time for international freight shipping depends on several factors including the distance traveled, the chosen mode of transportation, customs clearance procedures, and any potential delays such as adverse weather conditions or port congestion. Generally, ocean freight shipping takes longer than air freight, while express services offer faster delivery but at a higher cost.
