What to Know for a Successful Sea Freight Operation
Today, transportation types are divided into main groups as highway, railway, airline and maritime. Among them, the biggest share is maritime transport. In today's world, where many companies are in competition with each other, it is necessary to have a business partner with an expert and dynamic staff in order to be able to stand out in trade and to be successful by using sea transportation. It is an important criterion that your business partner's infrastructure meets your needs. The fact that the staff has a good command of the procedures of the countries where the transportation will be made and that they have knowledge about the geography of these countries are also important criteria for a successful maritime transport.
What Are The Advantages Of Maritime Transportation Over Other Transportation Methods?
The biggest advantage of maritime transport is that large-scale loads can be transported at low cost. There are around 4600 ports around the world. It is possible to send any kind of cargo to each of these ports by maritime transport. Due to the widespread principle of safe and insured transport, maritime transport has started to be preferred more than other types of transport in recent years. Large or small sized, high value or worthless products can be sent to the desired point quickly and safely by sea freight. Economic solution methods are continuously developed for the problems that may be encountered in maritime transportation, where the package program system is operated.
Today, most of the maritime transport is carried out by containers that meet certain international criteria. Many cargoes from electronic materials to textiles, fruits and vegetables to chemicals can be transported all over the world. In container transportation, there is the possibility of partial (LCL - Less container load) loading as well as full container transportation (FCL-Full Container load). In full container transportation, the entire load in a container belongs to a single cargo owner or buyer. In the case of partial container load, the load in a container belongs to two or more load owners or buyers.
Although all types of cargo can be transported all over the world in maritime transport, it is very important that the logistics company, which is your partner, has a wide service network in order to achieve this. Sertrans Logistics, which has been a WCA (World Cargo Alliance) member since 2001, transports your cargo to approximately 200 countries and more than 817 destinations with its 6901 agencies worldwide, safely and with perfect process management with its door-to-door delivery service.
