Ocean freight shipping is an excellent choice for international shipping whether you need to ship one single shipment of personal items, or you need to schedule one or more full containers of commercial goods to ship overseas. Some common items that can be shipped using ocean freight shipping are bulky household items, vehicles, and large commercial shipments of goods destined for international locations.
Planning Your Ocean Freight Shipment
There are three basic load sizes for ocean freight: Full container loads, loads that are less than a container and non-containerized loads for shipments which are too large or odd sized to fit into an ocean container. To measure your shipment accurately, you will need to determine its volume size, taking into account whether or not your goods can be stacked. For example, if you have stackable goods, then you may be able to use just one container on the ocean liner, while if your goods cannot be stacked you will need to schedule enough space for all of the items in a single layer.
