Sea freight is a method of transporting large quantities of goods using cargo ships. Goods are loaded into containers and loaded onto ships. A typical cargo ship can carry around 18,000 containers, making ocean shipping a cost-effective way to transport large quantities of cargo over long distances.
FCL or Full Container Cargo, where you can buy one or more full containers to send on board.
LCL or less than a container load, your products share a container because you may not have a full container’s worth. After reaching the destination, the container contents are divided again.
RORO or Roll-on-Roll-off, your products don’t leave the vehicle they’re on into the cargo ship. Vehicles simply get on board and leave at the other end.
Bulk shipping for certain items that are stored in the hold of a ship rather than transported in containers.
