What Is Ocean Freight Shipping?

Ocean freight shipping is a crucial part of global trade. It makes up about 90% of international commerce. This method is very efficient and affordable, so it’s the preferred way to transport a lot of goods worldwide.

Freight is packed securely in containers shipped on container ships, and transported across the ocean to ports around the world. 

Along with a reliable safety record, this method of shipping is more environmentally friendly, especially compared to air freight. It’s great for heavy or large (oversized) things that can’t be transported by air.

Ocean freight is a great option for both large and small businesses. It’s a flexible way to ship goods that don’t need to arrive quickly.
