HOW DOES SEA TRANSPORT LOOK LIKE?
Sea transport is nothing else than the transport of goods by water across the seas and oceans. It takes place through specialized vessels, e.g. container ships, bulk carriers or ro-ro ships that transport certain products from one port to another. It is one of the most economical means of transport. It is also characterized by a low accident rate. It is organized by companies providing sea forwarding services.
SEA TRANSPORT - TYPES OF HANDLED LOADS
In the case of forwarding and sea transport, two types of cargo are most often handled - FCL and LCL. In the case of the former, Full Container Load, the entire container is intended for the products of one recipient. The latter, Less then Container Load, are the so-called groupage shipments. These are goods that are contained in one container, but belong to different recipients.
WHY DOES SEA TRANSPORT PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN INTERNATIONAL TRADE?
Sea transport plays an extremely important role in international trade. It improves the exchange of goods between continents, and is also an important link in the global supply chain. No wonder then that the number of cargo transported by sea is increasing year by year.
What revolutionized shipping was standardization of shipping containers. As a result, it became possible to transport them by both trucks and ships, and the time needed to reload goods between these two modes of transport was reduced to a minimum.
This lowered transport costs and encouraged exporters and importers to ship their cargo by sea.
It is difficult to imagine the world today without sea transport of goods. Its importance is particularly evident in Asian and African countries, where the road infrastructure leaves much to be desired. This is why transport is the basis of international exchange.
It reaches places where other means of transport cannot.
SEA TRANSPORT - WHAT WILL BE TRANSPORTED IN CONTAINERS?
Sea transport is based on containers that allow the transport of various goods - from dry, through products that require cooling, to liquid. Cereals, textiles, electronic equipment, meat, toys, machinery and equipment - all these can be successfully transported in a container ship.
