What Are The Types of International Maritime Transport?

International maritime transport is divided into different types according to the type and characteristics of the goods to be transferred, the place of delivery, and the technologies used in the transport process. The types of maritime transport are typical as follows:

Irregular (Tramp) Shipping: Shipping without a fixed and continuous route, which has a route changing in line with the direction of the products to be transferred, is called tramp shipping. This spontaneous transport system is project-based and since the routes vary, the transport fee, which is called freight, may also differ.

Regular (Liner) Shipping: Regular shipping that uses fixed and certain routes is preferred in transatlantic goods transfers.  The shipping routes are followed and all details such as the departure date of the ship, the date of arrival at the port, and the amount of freight are planned before the transfer of the goods.

Transport of Dangerous Goods: International maritime transport is used to transfer flammable products such as crude oil at long distances in the safest way possible.

Container Transport: As one of the most preferred methods in international trade, maritime container transport aims to ship high amounts of products at long distances practically, quickly, and at an affordable price.
