What is Sea Freight?

Sea Freight is maritime shipping or ocean freight transportation using large cargo ships, and it is usually for international shipments. It is suitable for transporting large volumes of goods or oversized cargo. Sea Freight is also one of the main options for importers and exporters who are not very time-sensitive and want lower shipping costs compared to other modes of transportation.

Sea Freight literally translates to “ocean freight transportation” or “maritime freight shipping”.

The word “Sea” means ocean, and the word “Freight” means goods or the transportation of goods. Therefore, Sea Freight refers to the transportation of goods primarily via sea routes, typically using cargo ships or bulk carriers as the mode of transport. It is a popular method of shipping goods internationally and for long-distance freight transportation, as it allows for large volumes of cargo to be carried at lower costs compared to air freight, although it takes longer transit times.
