Sea Freight Information

Sea freight delivery, also known as ocean freight, is the transfer of goods by water.

Sea freight remains one of the oldest but most popular means of transporting goods. This is mainly because it is by far the most economical. While air freight delivery is faster and therefore sometimes more convenient, sea freight is far cheaper and far more environmentally friendly.

Statistics show that CO2 emissions are reduced by 15g for every kilometre a ship sails compared to air freight. There are also fewer restrictions in terms of size, weight and bulk due to the larger nature of freight ships compared to air craft. The long history of global shipping networks means that sea freight delivery enables goods to be easily transported anywhere over the world.

History of Sea Freight?

Originating many centuries ago, containerisation revolutionised the way sea freight was transported and delivered. Containerisation is a system of intermodal freight transport that uses containers of standardised dimensions. This means that the containers can be loaded and stacked together, maximising space whilst protecting the cargo storied inside the containers. The containers can travel by sea for long periods of time without damaging any of their contents. The kind of modern mass containerisation we use today for sea freight was further developed after World War II, as a means of reducing the cost of transport, thus supporting the post-war boom of international trade. This meant that sea freight played a vital part in the globalisation that makes the world economic trade thrive today.                                          
Many people may consider sea freight only viable for mass deliveries and large companies, but it is also incredibly economical and easy to access for small businesses and individual customers. Just contact P4D today, and we’ll have your cargo on the water in no time!

P4D can offer great value and discount when it comes to the services available to you when shipping freight. Our sea freight services are calculated taking into account the following:

- Weight and size of your delivery
- Destination country and airport
- Airline charges
- Any additional surcharges

As sea freight takes longer to ship and process, it is important to plan well in advance of when you need to deliver your goods. There may be international laws that regulate the type of goods you are transporting. Every country has different rules as well as local handling and customs regulations.

P4D can offer sea freight delivery to and from USA, China, India and the rest of the world. From single pallet delivery to container shipping. We ensure that our customers are made aware of every step of the process, and all the correct forms and documents are viewed and signed, making the procedure as simple and efficient as possible.
