OCEAN FREIGHT SHIPPING.
Ocean freight transport is the shipping of goods by sea via shipping containers. Ocean freight is the most common mode of transport that importers and exporters use. In fact, a full 90% of everything is shipped by ocean freight and sea freight.
WHEN SHOULD I USE OCEAN FREIGHT LOGISTICS SERVICES?
Ocean shipping makes sense when your shipments are large (more than one pallet), or of any size if you are not in a hurry for goods to reach their destination. When it comes to freight rates, all but the smallest shipments will be less expensive to ship via ocean freight (when compared to air-freight costs), so if your budget is constrained, an LCL (less-than-container-load) or FCL (full container load) shipment will be your best bet.

WHAT ARE THE TYPICAL CARGO SHIPPED THROUGH OCEAN?
The shipment agent can identify whether the ocean freight suits your shipment. A rule of thumb is that shipments with weight more than 100kg or those consisting of multiple cartons usually suit sea freight.
Though there are some restrictions regarding the commodities which can be shipped through sea freight, most items are allowed. Dangerous goods are moved under specific conditions while perishable goods are transported in appropriate containers. You can even transport refrigerated or frozen items and even products like sugar that need to be kept dry during the transit.
HOW INTERNATIONAL OCEAN FREIGHT WORKS?
In ocean freight shipping, goods are packed in shipping containers and the freight forwarder books container or space with the shipping agent. Shipment moves to the port and passes through customs at the point of origin. Goods are loaded into full containers or shared containers depending on the volume and put on the cargo ship for transportation. When they reach the destination, goods pass through customs again generally arranged by the shipping agent and upon payment of duties and taxes, released for delivery. The goods are delivered to the receiver either in the same container or on pallets.
WHAT TYPE OF OCEAN CARGO IS SENT BY SEA?
There are two types of cargo shipments for ocean freight:
LCL or Less Than Container Load shipments suit the goods which are too less to fill a whole container.
In such a condition, the goods are loaded into a shared container with others rather than a dedicated container. FCL or Full Container Load, on the other hand, is good for high volumes of goods which fill entire container.
WHAT CAN INTERNATIONAL OCEAN FREIGHT COMPANIES DO FOR YOU?
International ocean freight companies can offer reliable and affordable ocean freight services for overseas shipments.
They are specialized at handling shipments of any size from less than container to full container loads and oversized and special equipment cargo such for shipping vehicle.
They also provide freight forwarding services to book the cargo, arrange for pickup and delivery, manage shipping documentation and handle other procedures regardless of the carrier and point of destination. Also facilitate the entire forwarding process to meet the requirements of the import and export countries.
HOW LONG DOES OCEAN FREIGHT TAKE?
There are various factors that determine the time of transit an ocean freight takes.
The time spent on the water and the time taken for door to door shipments are different.
This is because there are many steps the goods go through before reaching the vessel and after they arrive.
The location of the goods also affects the time sea freight shipping takes. You can typically add a week’s time on each end of the process on the top of the time on water.
Delays in shipping also affect freight time. Other delays can result when goods are held up at customs or when there is no sufficient documentation available with the importer.
WHEN TO CHOOSE SEA FREIGHT SHIPPING?
Sea freight shipping is often a cost-effective option when you want to import bulk amount of goods from overseas. People buying their stock from other countries find sea freight the cheapest method. However, sea freight takes longer to ship and should be chosen when you have enough time.
WHAT ARE OCEAN FREIGHT CARGO SERVICES?
Ocean Freight Cargo Services are intended to benefit shippers by getting their goods transported overseas under careful supervision. This will simplify the entire process and take care of each of the steps involved in ocean freight.
Example freight forwarders helps customer with the process of any international ocean freight. This companies, also speed up the shipping and let you transport the goods at cheap prices. They offer a reliable port to port or door to door shipping services between two countries.
WHAT AFFECTS OCEAN FREIGHT RATE?
Calculating the ocean freight rates can be complicated because there are so many variables and most of them keep changing at different times of the year. There are four major factors affecting ocean freight rates:
Fuel: This is the most crucial factor to determine the freight charges for any type of shipping.
Currency: Currency rates have a significant effect on ocean freight rates.
Season: Changing seasonal demands of goods also affect ocean freight rates.
