Shipment of goods via an air carrier; these may be commercial or charter. These shipments depart from both commercial and passenger aviation gateways. This, therefore, allows for them to travel to any location where planes can fly and land.
Consolidation involves combining multiple shipments from various shippers into one container. As a result of this, several companies use one container/truck depending on their requirements.
In fact, a single company could also consolidate if they have cargo going to different routes, as opposed to just one.
Cargo is transported by ship, aircraft or motor vehicle. While cargo typically refers to goods on board a transport vehicle, there are some exceptions.
For instance, personnel bags, storage goods or products supporting the transport being carried aboard.
Export is the opposite of Import, meaning, sending goods from one country to another.
In simple terms, Express Delivery is quick delivery. In this instance, the goods are transported by air to reach the intended destination as soon as possible. To guarantee the speedy arrival, customers usually pay a larger fee. The cargo may arrive anywhere between 24-72 hours following this.
Express delivery is suitable for urgent situations. However, if there is a more flexible timespan, standard delivery may be more appropriate for your requirements.
Standing for “Full Container Load”, FCL is a shipping mode used in ocean freight. Unlike LCL, this shipment fills the entire container and therefore does not share space with another client.
Furthermore, FCL shipments are owned by a singular entity. Some examples of ideal FCL shipping items include high-value items or bulky items such as toys or garden furniture.
Shipment of goods via an air Unlike the Part Load, as the name suggests, a Full Load uses the entirety of available freight space when shipping. Once again, this applies to multiple modes of transport such as Sea, Air and Road.
Despite the larger quantity, there are actually several benefits to a full load. For example, faster transport as there are no additional stops for other clients’ cargo. Furthermore, the charge reflects the units of measurement of the container or storage space in the freight vehicle rather than the load itself.
Freight shipping is the process of transporting commodities, goods and cargo by a variety of methods, for instance, land, sea or air.
On the other hand, the freight itself is described as goods transported by a ship or aircraft, to name just a few examples.
Unlike freight, Haulage refers to goods being moved in bulk by means of road or railway. This is usually between suppliers and any number of businesses – including factories, warehouses, or depots.
Some examples of transported goods include vegetables and other foodstuffs, to clothes, ore, coal, and other supplies.
This is cargo received from a foreign or domestic offshore port of origin for loading to a domestic motor, rail or water carrier for inland transit.
A logistical term, LCL stands for “Less-than-Container-Load”. More specifically, it occurs when a single shipper’s goods do not completely fill an entire container. When this happens, in order to fill an entire container, space in the container is split between orders and/or shippers.
As the container is shared with other shipments, small businesses take advantage of the low cost of ocean shipping without requiring high volume. This is also a very economical option for small, heavy shipments as transit times are not an issue.
A pallet is a flat, transportable platform, usually made of wood or plastic, on which goods can be transported, stacked and stored. They are designed to support goods and provide stability during transit.
Pallet shipping ranks among the most common forms of distribution worldwide. In fact, most pallets hold a total weight of 1000kg. This makes them more than capable of handling your distribution requirements.
When transporting your cargo or freight, we use a variety of methods and quantities depending on the clients’ needs. One example is the Part Load. As the name suggests, this is a load (shipment) that only takes up some of the available freight space. This holds true for air, sea and road transportation.
By simple logic, not every load is large enough to take up all the potential space. So, instead, we find other ways to utilise the remaining space in the container.
Otherwise known as moving to a new place and establishing your home/business there. Ships transport your personal/business belongings as cargo to ease their journey to the new destination.
In contrast to shipping, this is an even more involved process. In the event of a home move, professional packers come directly to your home. They
pack the boxes, wrap the furniture, load the container correctly (by hand) and arrange shipment to destination.
As the name implies, road transport is the transportation of cargo and/or personnel from one location to another on roads. This is a preferred method when unlike other forms of shipping, the starting point and destination are within the same country.
The method of transporting large goods by sea. As many cargo ships can carry thousands of containers, sea freight is a cost-efficient way to transport high quantities over large distances.
Sea freight tends to be associated with larger companies exporting high volumes of commercial cargo. However, it is also a great option for transporting personal effects.
