Ocean freight is by far the most environmentally friendly option for long-distance shipping, and the same factors that make it low-carbon also keep it low-cost.
Do You Need Ocean Freight for Your Business?
Ocean freight offers several unique advantages over air and ground. Ocean freight is great for large, bulky cargo shipments, and shipments of raw materials, though the options are virtually limitless. Liquid bulk items, dry bulk, container cargo, and machinery are often shipped by sea. Sea freight might be right for your business if you want to ship long distances cheaply. After all, sea freight is often several times cheaper than air. Even for small shipments, ocean freight might be the best option. A transportation expert at Santos International can help you determine which shipping method you need.
