Choosing to move your goods by an Ocean mode will bring about the following key benefits.
Cost-Effective: transporting containers of goods by ship is one of the most cost-effective forms of transport, which is important for supply chain management and operations within a business and can help keep the price of goods competitive for the end customers. Like with Air Freight, shipping goods can be consolidated to benefit economies of scale and reduce the price, known as LCL (Less Container Load). If you are shipping enough goods to fit into one container, or the goods are fragile or contain chemicals/liquids, it may be good to consider FCL shipment, Full Container Load.
Heavy goods: for items that are large or heavy, ocean freight might be the only way to get goods overseas, as airlines can restrict some form of transport, and shipping ports generally have large storage capabilities
Environmentally Friendly: ocean freight is the most environmentally friendly form of transport for cargo, which can help boost the company’s brand and reputation and assist in reducing your carbon footprint.
