Since it takes longer to deliver cargo, sea freight is more affordable than air freight. Shippers who are working with a budget should consider engaging sea freight services if time is not an issue.

WHAT ARE THE PROCESSES INVOLVED?
Firstly, a trucking company would be hired to pick up the goods from the factory in country A by transporting a container over. The container will then be securely sealed after it has been fully packed with all customers’ orders.
A shipping port will be chosen by the freight forwarder for the goods to be shipped. The necessary contract and documentation would be settled and the container would be loaded onto a ship and head towards country B’s seaport.
A few days prior to the ship’s arrival, the captain of the ship is responsible for giving a pre-alert to country B’s government. A report containing relevant details of the ship, crew and cargo would be submitted in order to obtain custom clearance.
When clearance has been approved, the ship enters B’s seaport and the container will be unloaded using cranes. An inspection of the container will be done by custom authorities in order to ensure that all items present are the same as the details stated in the submitted documents.
Once all information is tallied, the unloaded container will be loaded back into a truck which will further transport it to an import distribution centre. There, the container will be unpacked and the goods will be separated. Door to door delivery will then be provided to transport the products directly to the various shops in country B.
