International transport of goods in containers on bulk carriers is one of the most cost-effective forms of transport and allows you to deliver goods to different continents. A large part of the cargo all over the world is delivered thanks to sea transport. Container transport by sea occupies a significant place in the total number of goods transported.
Special features of cargo transportation by sea
Cargo transportation by sea is the cheapest way to move cargo over longer distances. It has no restrictions as to the size and weight of the transported goods, it is also characterized by an extensive geography of delivery. Sea container transport uses 20- and 40-foot containers, in which various types of cargo can be placed.
Why should you choose sea freight?
It was sea transport that allowed the development of international transport of goods in containers. Despite the later development of other methods, such as air and rail transport, sea container transport is still one of the most frequently chosen logistics options. This is possible due to the relatively low cost of this method of transport, the large capacity of sea vessels, and few restrictions on the loads that can be transported in this way.
When deciding on sea freight, we primarily care about safety of our goods. Transport by sea is reliable and efficient – loads transported in containers are resistant to weather conditions and any unplanned situations.
