One method of transporting goods is the transportation of goods using sea transport. Usually, these methods are used to deliver goods between continents, while other methods are prohibitive or where the shipment volume is large enough to justify shipping.
Compared with other modes of transport, shipping is the cheapest. At the same time, shipping is generally slower and requires extra time for loading and unloading of goods in the ports of Ukraine.
While each particular order requires a separate calculation of the cost of delivery, but in most cases it is shipping that is most profitable. Unlike other modes of transport, the price of shipping generally includes costs for the loading and unloading of goods at the port.
The maritime container transport uses both standard containers and non-standard containers. These special containers are often used for the consolidated products and oversized goods. However, for international shipping, it is very important to use a unified type of container. Such unification greatly simplifies the calculations in different countries and customs clearance procedures.
For these types of Ukraine transport ports are often used. They are generally used as sources or destinations for delivery. However, due to the fact that the specially equipped warehouses are available, the ports can also be used for temporary storage of goods, if necessary.
Maritime transport can be used as part of multimode transport. In this case, several different modes of delivery are used. For example, motor transport can be combined with shipping. This multimode delivery goes well with consolidated cargo, although it can be used for any other type of transport. The main task before the customer is to specify all necessary conditions for the transport of goods as soon as possible. After that, the transport company itself can choose the most appropriate delivery method.
When transportation is ordered, the company that provides such services usually responsible for the cargo insurance, control of all stages of transportation, preparation of the necessary documentation. When performed by a company, such transactions greatly simplify the delivery of goods “door to door”.
