Sea Freight Services

Sea freight services are currently experiencing a significant surge in demand for international cargo transportation by sea, catering to commercial enterprises and manufacturing, import, and export companies.

Sea transport offers several advantages, such as the capacity to carry large volumes of goods, lower transportation costs compared to other methods like air freight, and the ability to transport goods over long distances.

To provide a better understanding of sea freight services, KVN Logistics would like to share information to help customers comprehend the strengths and weaknesses of this service.

1. What is Sea Freight?

Sea freight involves the transportation activities related to the use of maritime infrastructure and means of transport. This includes the use of land and water areas connected by sea routes linking countries, and the use of ships, handling equipment, etc., to facilitate the movement of goods over these sea routes.

Thanks to the network of seaports worldwide, the coordination between international sea freight companies for cargo transportation and delivery has become easier and more vibrant than ever. Sea freight is the most superior and crucial transport method today, accounting for up to 80% of the total volume of goods transported globally by different methods.

In Vietnam, with over 3,260 km of coastline, 45 major port clusters, and being situated on a dynamic cargo shipping route, Vietnam plays a significant role in global maritime trade. Thus, Vietnam’s sea freight services hold many advantages and prospects for future development.
