International Ocean Freight

About International Ocean Freight

Freight transport has been achieved widely by sea throughout recorded history. Although the importance of sea travel for passengers has decreased due to aviation, it is effective for short trips and pleasure cruises. Transport by water is cheaper than transport by air. Water transport is highly cost effective with regular schedulable cargoes, such as trans-oceanic shipping of consumer products— and especially for heavy loads or bulk cargos, such as coal, coke, ores or grains. Arguably,

The industrial revolution took place best where cheap water transport by canal, navigations, or shipping by all types of watercraft on natural waterways supported cost effective bulk transport. Containerization revolutionized maritime transport starting in the 1970s. “General cargo” includes goods packaged in boxes, cases, pallets, and barrels. When a cargo is carried in more than one mode, it is intermodal or co-modal. Containerization greatly reduced the expense of international trade and increased its speed, especially of consumer goods and commodities. It also dramatically changed the character of port cities worldwide. Freight House Logistics is registered with the Directorate General of Shipping, Government of India as an authorized Multimodal Transport Operator (MTO) as it is called which is also referred to as Non-Vessel Owning Container Carrier (NVOCC).  is authorized to issue its House Bill of Lading which is covered by liability insurance.
