Ocean Freight Forwarder: Managing the Long Journey to Overseas Markets

[Posted on Jan 31]

Transport of Goods and Cargo Containers

When goods are properly packaged in Sea Trucks or Shipping Containcers, the ocean freight forwarder will arrange for ground transport to pick them up for delivery to a warehouse usually located near the departure port. The cargo is then transferred to the warehouse where it will be loaded into sealed containers manufactured specially for ocean transport. Containers are available in several different lengths ranging from 20 feet to 53 feet. The standard Conex container lengths are 20 feet and 40 feet with a nominal width of 8.5 feet and height of 8 feet. Forwarders offer both full container load (FCL) and less than full container load (LCL) packing. Occasionally, however, containers will be packed by the shipper at its own facility and then brought directly to the shipping dock for loading. This step eliminates the need for additional warehousing and can result in considerable savings for the shipper.
