FCL operation process for international maritime transport


The international carriage of goods by sea refers to the act that the carrier carries the goods consigned by the shipper from one port to another port by sea in accordance with the provisions of the contract of carriage of goods by sea.

International Ocean Freight is the most important mode of transportation in international trade. More than two-thirds of the total volume of international trade is carried by Ocean Freight, and most of China's import and export goods are carried by Ocean Freight.

Ocean transport volume is large, shipping costs are low, the waterway is accessible, is its advantage. However, slow speed, high sailing risk and difficult to determine the sailing date are its shortcomings. According to the mode of operation of ships, international maritime transport can be divided into liner transport and charter transport.
