Ocean Freight Our oceans are the world’s greatest highway accounting for 95% of the goods shipped worldwide. There are fifty-five thousand merchant vessels in operation that are circulating an estimated twenty million ocean containers throughout the world. What does that mean to shippers? It means in about 30 days one can ship their goods inside an ocean container door to door to or from just about anywhere on the planet. There are exceptions, of course, but shipping over the sea is reliable and the single most important mode of shipping internationally. Ocean freight is also the most cost-effective way to move freight worldwide as modern super carriers can carry 15,000+ containers per sailing. The fact that any given vessel can travel distances estimated at up to ¾ of the distance to the moon and back in one year highlights the significance ocean freight has on our lives in the modern world. Shippers certainly have their own unique requirements regarding transit time allowances in any given supply chain and that is where our specialization can work for you…inbound or outbound. When time is of the essence, we have the solutions. At origin overseas, for example, our people can scramble a truck to your supplier and take the shipment directly to the dock. One cannot rush a ship at sea but once the vessel is worked at the port many processes can be accelerated dramatically. We can work to get advanced carrier release and have a truck at the staging area to pull the container by truck all the way to your door. Import or Export our people locally and worldwide communicate, coordinate and get it done. For less urgent cargos we have the bottom-line approach to assure good delivery time at a required value matching the exact needs of the project. We have the solutions for every project and supply chain no matter where the priority on the time-cost service matrix and that includes consolidated, special equipment, break bulk and ro/ro consignments.
