Ocean freight, i.e., "sea freight," is the international transportation of goods by sea. Sea transport provides the transportation of heavy and dimensional cargoes that cannot be transported by air, with more advantageous freight costs than road transport. Sea transport, which includes transportation types such as container, bulk cargo, tanker, and ro-ro, provides full (FCL) or partial (LCL) transportation options.
