International Moving Company Offering Ocean Transport
Ocean Transportation is the most common avenue for international shipping. Larger volume shipments are usually via ocean transportation. A large factor contributing to the popularity of ocean transportation is cost. In the international moving industry, ocean transportation is the most cost-effective mode of shipping.
OCEAN TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS
The three most common ways to ship by ocean are:
- Direct FCL / LCL - The direct shipment of merchandise to the point of destination in another country utilizing one vessel. The direct method of ocean transportation is available to most high volume shipping locations for both FCL (Full Container Load) and LCL (Less than a Container Load) consignments. This method decreases transit time and increases the cost of the ocean freight.
- Trans-ship FCL / LCL - The shipment of merchandise to the point of destination in another country on more than one vessel. The trans-ship method of transportation is available for both FCL and LCL consignments. This method is more cost effective than the direct method, however takes longer to arrive at final destination.
- Consolidation - Consolidation is a term which applies to multiple shipments being loaded into an ocean container. When smaller shipments are combined in one steamship container, the cost of the ocean freight, THC - Terminal Handling Charges (mandatory in every form of ocean transportation) and delivery are dramatically reduced.
