Why ship by sea? Moving cargo by transportation is the longest running method of transportation. It is the most economical way to ship heavy cargoes a long distance, and the most versatile. Globitex sea freight platform focuses and specializes in the movement or forwarding of merchandise or cargo from one place to another by water transport. Ocean freight includes boat or vessels, transporting commodities by sea.
When you have large quantities of goods that need to get to their destination in a timely and efficient manner, sea freight is the most cost effective and streamlined way to ship. In fact, sea freight, also known as ocean freight, is how 90 percent of the goods we buy get to where they need to be — and it’s cheaper than you think, especially for heavy cargo that is prohibitively expensive to ship via other means.
By using large container ships that pile on hundreds of standardized intermodal shipping containers, shipping carriers such as Maersk Line, CMA CGM, Hapag Lloyd, Evergreen Marine, COSCO and others are able to transport goods, machinery and other items at a reasonable cost and under a fast and efficient timeframe. But unless you’re a large-scale manufacturer or import/exporter, you won’t be able to deal with these huge, international shippers directly.
That’s where we come in. By working directly with the shippers that power our world’s commerce, we can arrange for as little or as much space and weight as you need to get your goods where they need to go via sea freight, and it all comes with up-to-the-minute tracking and competitive pricing that makes financial and logistical sense to both your business and your bottom line.
