Overseas transportation is the most important mode of transportation in international trade. More than two-thirds of the total international trade volume, and most of my country's import and export goods are transported by ocean transportation.

International carriage of goods by sea refers to the act of the carrier, in accordance with the contract of carriage of goods by sea, to transport the goods consigned by the shipper from the port of one country to the port of another country by sea, using the maritime vessel as the means of transport and charging the freight as a reward.

What is the meaning of overseas shipping?

Overseas transportation is one of the important channels for the country to save foreign exchange payments and increase foreign exchange income. In my country, freight expenditure generally accounts for about 10% of the total foreign trade import and export. If you make full use of international trade conditions and strive for more ships, you can not only save foreign exchange payments, but also gain more foreign exchange income. In particular, my country's transportation capacity is put into the international shipping market, and the third country transportation is actively carried out to create foreign exchange income for the country. In some shipping developed countries, foreign exchange freight income has become an important pillar of their national economy.

The important role of developing overseas transportation

Maritime transport is achieved by the practice of seafaring activities, which are based on shipbuilding, seafaring skills and skilled seamen. The shipbuilding industry is a comprehensive industry, and its development can also drive the development of the steel industry, the shipbuilding equipment industry, and the electronic instrumentation industry, and promote the improvement of the entire country's industrial structure. From the original ship importing country, my country has gradually become a ship exporting country in recent years, and is moving towards the ranks of the major ship exporting countries.

Advantages of Overseas Shipping

1. Large volume. The carrying capacity of marine vessels is far greater than that of rail and road transport vehicles. The world's largest oil tanker is 500,000 tons. ​​
2, the freight is low. According to the point of view of economies of scale, because of the large volume and long voyage, the transportation cost allocated to each ton of goods is less, so the freight rate is relatively low. ​​
3. Strong adaptability to goods. Ocean shipping ships can adapt to a variety of transportation needs. Many ships are now designed specifically for cargo needs. Such as multi-purpose ships, the emergence of specialized ships provides conditions for the transportation of different goods.
