What is Sea Freight Shipping?

Sea freight shipping involves transporting goods from one place to another by boat.

It is a cost-effective and reliable method of transport, and can carry larger quantities in a shorter amount of time.

Who Uses Sea Freight?

There are much fewer limitations when it comes to what can be transported by sea freight as opposed to other shipping options. For this reason, sea freight is a viable option for most businesses.

It is also suitable for transporting very large and heavy items that cannot be transported via airplane or truck.

Why Ship by Sea?

There are numerous benefits to shipping via sea. Many businesses choose sea freight as it is more cost-effective than other transport options. As ships can transport larger quantities in less time, products can be shipped in bulk for less. There are also fewer restrictions when it comes to the volume and weight of your cargo.

Sea freight is also the greener option. It doesn’t require as much fuel as air freight or trucking and releases fewer carbon emissions.
