Everything You Need to Know About Sea Freight

As a business owner, you understand the importance of reliable and cost-effective shipping solutions for your products. Sea freight, also known as ocean freight, is a popular option for businesses that need to transport large quantities of goods across long distances.

At QI Logistics, we offer a comprehensive range of sea freight services to help businesses of all sizes and industries get their products to their destination on time and on budget. Here are some key things you need to know about sea freight:

  1. Cost-effectiveness: Sea freight is generally a more cost-effective option than air freight, making it a great choice for businesses with larger and heavier shipments.
  2. Transit time: Transit time for sea freight is typically longer than air freight due to the nature of the shipping process, so it’s important to plan accordingly when scheduling your shipments.
  3. Shipping containers: Your goods will be loaded into shipping containers, which come in different sizes depending on your needs. You can choose between a full container load (FCL) or a less-than-container load (LCL) based on your shipping volume.
  4. Customs clearance: As with any international shipping, customs clearance is an important part of the process. At QI Logistics, we have a team of experienced customs brokers to ensure your shipments comply with all regulations and avoid any delays.
  5. Insurance: It’s important to consider insuring your goods during sea freight shipping. QI Logistics can help you arrange marine insurance to protect your shipment from any loss or damage during transit.
