Clients interested in international shipping services know that there are several different ways to transport cargo overseas. Whether you are shipping to Europe (Rotterdam / Le Havre / Southampton / Bremerhaven), Africa (Lagos / Tema / Luanda), Asia (Chittagong / Kolkata / Tokyo / Beijing), South America (Buenos Aires/ Cartagena / San Antonio) or anywhere in the world, clients can choose between ocean freight, air freight, and container shipping. Each method has its own pros and cons, depending on the client’s budget, the cargo they are shipping, and the size of the cargo.
With container shipping, clients can choose from a variety containers of distinct sizes and shapes. Other than the standard 20 feet, 40 feet, and 45 feet containers, clients can opt for an open-top, a flat rack, tunnel, dry-storage, or one of the other many options.
A few reasons that clients opt for containers include safety of the cargo, protection from the elements, transportation of a non-wheeled automobile, or cost efficiency. Many times, when a client is transporting a classic or vintage car, using a container is the best option. For various other goods, clients can choose between less-than-container load (LCL) or full-container-load (FCL), depending on whether or not they can fill up an entire container-worth of cargo.
An experienced international shipping company can help clients determine the best method of shipment for their particular cargo, shipping needs, and target destination. Whether a client is new to freight forwarding or is an international shipping veteran, a reliable company can make the experience hassle-free.
