What is Sea Freight?

Sea freight is a method of transporting large quantities of products via cargo ships. Goods are packed into containers and these containers are loaded onto a vessel, where they will be sailed to their destination country.

There are a number of ways in which sea freight can be transported.


  • FCL or Full container load, which you purchase one or more full containers to send on a ship.
  • LCL or Less than container load, where your products share a container as you may not have a full container’s worth. Once they reach their destination, the container’s contents are divided once more.
  • RORO , where your products do not leave the vehicle they are in to go onto the cargo ship. The vehicle simply drives onto the ship, and then drives off the other end.
  • Dry bulk shipping is used for some specific items, which are deposited into the hold of the ship instead of traveling a container
  • ROLLING CARGO is on wheels, such as truck or trailers, and which can be driven or towed onto a ship
