Anyone who does serious business around the country and/or overseas understands that transportation costs for goods and equipment is a serious concern. There are lots of good reasons (economic, mostly) to consider how you ship you materials. You might find that shipping by sea is something you’ve never considered, but should. International shipping via ocean can seem daunting, but it is absolutely within your control – with the right partner.
There are several important reasons to consider shipping over the ocean. The trucker shortage in the United States is a plague that is only going to get worse before it gets better. Hiring truckers, training them and equipping them is a project that costs a lot of money and can affect major transportation companies from coast to coast. Delays in pickups and arrivals can critically impact not only delivery, but the costs associated with trucking. Rail traffic is another concern. While it might seem that rail traffic can use all it can get in terms of business, there is actually a congestion problem in many locations in the US. Expansion efforts aren’t currently predicted to meet the needs of the transportation industry.
Contemplating these problems can seem overwhelming. But really, with the right partner there is no need to be concerned. But you really should use the right partner. Water shipping has many moving parts, and your expert in shipping (like K International) will be aware of all the paperwork, letters of credit and other issues affecting shipping via the ocean.
Really, with the right parts in place, shipping via the ocean is a simple way to get goods or equipment where you really need it to go! With excellent roll-on/roll-off equipment, there is no reason to worry about shipping by boat. Bypass the congestion and worry of delays. Find out just how easy it really is to ship by sea.
