Ocean Freight is the movement of goods by ship from one destination to another. It involves the transportation of cargo via container ships, bulk carriers, and other vessels across oceans and seas.
Ocean freight requires precise coordination between all parties involved to ensure that the cargo arrives safely at its final destination with minimal delays. This includes shippers, carriers, customs authorities, ports of loading and discharge, truckers, and other service providers responsible for loading/unloading cargo onto vessels at origin or delivery points.
Ocean Freight also requires extensive paperwork, including bills of lading that validate ownership rights and customs clearance documents.
