What is the mode of transportation by sea freight?

There are more and more shipping companies at any time, and there are many types of ships in international shipping; different requirements from importers and exporters are required, especially for ships used to transport different types of goods.


• Ro-Ro or “Ro-Ro” ships are used to transport transport vehicles and passenger vehicles.


• Container ships are used to transport standard 20′ or 40′ containers.


• Tankers are used to transport bulk liquids such as oil and gas.


• General cargo ships will carry all types of bulk cargo.


• Bulk carriers are used to transport bulky, single-cargo cargoes such as coal, grain and ore.


Merchant ships basically operate in two ways:


• As a liner operating on a fixed route, standard rates are usually used. The industry is dominated by ro-ro, container and general cargo ships.


• Or operate as a chartered vessel, at the request of the chartering agency, the means by which the cargo is transported onto the vessel.
