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
When should I use ocean freight logistics
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 is Faster Freights
experience with ocean freight global shipping?
Faster Freight is part of Agility, one of the
worlds largest logistics companies. We are
leveraging new technology to give SMEs access to
Agilitys vast and well-established network of
transportation assets and partnerships. Ocean
freight services are core business for Agility
and Faster Freight, so you need not be concerned
with the insecurities that might typically
surround startups in the freight forwarding space.
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
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
  • LCL or Less Than Container Load shipments suit
    the goods which are too less to fill a whole
  • 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
  • The location of the goods also affects the time
    sea freight shipping takes. You can typically add
    a weeks 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.

    offer a reliable port to port or door to door
    shipping services between two countries.

What Affects Ocean Freight Rate?

    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
  • Currency Currency rates have a significant
    effect on ocean freight rates.
  • Season Changing seasonal demands of goods also
    affect ocean freight rates.
