What does sea freight mean?

The term “sea freight” refers to the transportation of goods by sea using cargo ships. Unlike other transport modes, sea freight involves the shipment of large quantities of goods that are loaded into standardized containers on cargo ships. These containers can contain a variety of goods, from bulk to packaged products.

Sea freight offers companies an extremely economical transport solution. By transporting large quantities of goods in containers on huge cargo ships, the cost per unit can be significantly reduced. This makes sea freight particularly attractive for international trade and companies that produce on a large scale.

How much does sea freight cost?

Sea freight costs can vary greatly and depend on various factors, including weight, size, distance and destination of the shipment. The shipping method, urgency and additional services such as insurance, notifications or special handling also play a role. With negotiating skills, more favorable conditions can be achieved for regular or larger shipping volumes.

What special features should you pay attention to in sea freight?

Sea freight is a specialized form of transporting goods across the oceans and seas. Here are some of the special features and most important aspects to consider when shipping by sea:

Transport time:

Sea freight has longer transit times compared to other transport modes, such as air freight or land transport. Plan delivery times accordingly, especially when it comes to time-critical shipments.
Packaging for maritime transport:

Due to exposure to sea water, salt air and vibrations during sea transport, robust and corrosion-resistant packaging is required. The packaging should withstand the specific conditions of the maritime environment.

Most sea freight shipments are transported in standardized containers. It is important to containerize the cargo appropriately and choose the right type of container (e.g. dry container, refrigerated container, flat container) depending on the type of cargo.
Customs and international regulations:

International sea freight shipments are subject to complex customs regulations and international regulations. Careful compliance with these regulations is crucial to avoid delays or problems with customs clearance.
Weight and volume:

Sea freight shipments are often billed based on volume (cubic meters) and weight (tonnes). It is important to know the exact dimensions and weight of the cargo in order to correctly calculate the costs.
Temperature control (if necessary):

For sensitive goods, such as food or pharmaceutical products, temperature control may be required. Refrigerated containers offer the opportunity to regulate the temperature during transport.
Tracking and visibility:

Modern ocean freight companies offer advanced shipment tracking systems to provide customers with real-time information about the status of their cargo shipments. This enables better planning and control of the supply chain.
