Sea Freight with FATS
There was a time when you did not question which mode of transport you would use when importing? However, things have changed. Sea Freight or Liner shipping is still the most efficient mode of transporting large, bulky and heavy products or goods. The biggest advantage of sending your goods by ship is that this method can carry almost any weight and number of goods, and it is far more cost-effective per kilogram than any competing method.
When shipping always remember:
- Don’t send prohibited materials
- Check delivery times so you are able to project plan
- Use a reputable forwarding company to save you money and time
- Package your products carefully and correctly
If you are shipping in bulk or your products are big and heavy, then get ready to set sail as this form of transport is for you.
