WHAT IS SEA FREIGHT DELIVERY?

As the name suggest, sea freight, or also known as ocean freight, employs a sea vessel to transport goods or cargoes from one sea port to another on other parts of the world. The goods are commonly contained within a shipping containers or if they are packed well enough, are placed directly on the vessel.

FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN USING SEA FREIGHT

LARGE CAPACITY

One great advantage of using sea freight over its counterpart is its capacity to hold large amounts of shipping containers. This allows for huge number of storage and shipment of large amount of goods to another location.

COST EFFICIENT

Another advantage and consideration for many is the cost. The price of sea freight is comparably 5 to 6 times cheaper as that of its air freight counterpart. However, though the cost is low, there will be times where additional cost are incurred. This is due to the added trucking where is used to bring the necessary goods to the warehouse, not located near the seaport. But whatever the reason, it is still a good call for consideration to use sea freight as a mode of delivery.

PUNCTUALITY

Other consideration of employing sea freight will be its delivery time and punctuality. It will take 30 days for a sea freight to deliver their goods as compared to air freight which only takes between 2 days to a week. Also, due to certain circumstance, there can be instances where shipping schedules gets delay. This delay may pushed sea freight delay a further 1 to 2 weeks back as compared to its stipulated timing.

LAND DELIVERY

Upon selection of a sea freight company, trucking services, or a land delivery will be made. This is to bring the container to a commercial warehousing space that allows for the loading of their goods.

PACKING

Upon filling up this container with the goods, it will be bolted shut and sealed with a high security seal. This container will only be open and seal broken, upon delivery, at the requested storage place or unless ordered by custom official for inspection.

CUSTOM CLEARANCE

The sea freight forwarders will then contact the port where this container will be shifted to. Necessary logistical and administrative paperwork are then completed by both customer and the sea freight company to ensure that goods exported or imported fulfil customs regulation of affected countries and are also insured with the necessary documents.

SEA TRANSPORTATION

Container is then loaded on to the ship and will carry out its delivery within the agreed stipulated time.
