Sea Freight

Sea Freight

It is fair to say that Maritime Transportation has been and still remains the backbone of global trade and has been so since the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Indians, Chinese, Europeans all started sailing and improvising the sailing methods from sailboats, dhows, long boats, dragon boats, steamships to the current ULCVs, VLOCs, VLCCs etc, At the same time it almost always cheaper than air freight.

As per UNCTAD figures, in 2017, an estimated 89.5% of global trade is carried by sea.

As briefly defined above, Sea Shipping is the act of carriage of cargo from point to point using the ships which falls under the Maritime industry.
