Transoceanic delivery accounts for more than 60% of the total world cargo turnover. It is the best type of delivery option for shipping goods between continents, especially for shipping between China and the United States, which do not share a land border. Shipping by sea is also the most economical option. The option may suit you because of one or any of the follow reasons:
- You’ve purchased something in bulk, or something big and bulky like furniture.
- You need to ship oversized cargo.
- You have goods that are seasonal in nature.
- You’ve purchased goods with a long shelf life and time is not of the essence.
You can plan your bulk orders and book the shipping in advance. Ideally, clients fill their entire shipping container to maximize the cost-benefit of shipping by sea. Additionally, customs clearance is fast for this type of freight.

Both small businesses and large companies utilize shipping services. Small businesses often work with consumer goods. Large companies buy industrial equipment and tools.

The algorithm and the advantages of delivery by sea
This is how the system works. A customer orders something from China to be delivered to our warehouse address. Although the longer delivery time, sea shipping has its advantages, among which are:
- Reliability. Accidents at sea are extremely rare.
- Priority. China understands the need for a smooth shipping process because of how important it is to the Chinese economy. There should be very few holdups, if any.
- Safety. Your goods will be secure on board the ship and goods are rarely damaged while being transported.
- Price. This method of shipping is without doubt much cheaper than by air.
