Understanding ocean freight – and what it means for your business

In short, ocean freight is the method of transporting often large loads of goods by sea – putting cargo in large containers which are loaded onto vessels.

Over 90% of all the world’s trade is carried by sea – and even more in some countries. As a general rule, shipments weighing more than 100kg – or consisting of multiple cartons – will be sent by sea freight. Some further restrictions apply to certain goods from country to country, but most items are allowed.

 

Getting to know the players – and taking your time

The ocean freight market is home to a number of carriers. These are the companies that own the vessels and containers that can carry your cargo.

Twill is an innovation of Maersk and we're able to call on that 115 years of experience to best ocean freight service ;for our customers – getting their freight on the best routes at the right price. With our instant rates, you get all costs upfront too, meaning there are no surprises when your cargo reaches its destination!

But as you can imagine, getting all those containers across the sea takes some time. Exactly how long depends on various factors – including where you're shipping it to and from and the type of shipment. There are several steps that goods go through before they reach a vessel and before they arrive at their destination. You can usually add a week's time on either end of the process.

 

If it can travel by sea, why not air?

Well, there are a few reasons – largely to do with capacity and cost. While air freight is often faster and a bit more reliable (as you're not at the mercy of the sea!) it's also more expensive – sometimes four or five times more expensive.

Ocean freight takes more time, but it's far cheaper and there are fewer restrictions on shipping hazardous cargo. On top of that, there's much greater capacity for the price you pay. One container can hold 10,000 beer bottles for example!

Ultimately, you want to pick the best route for your cargo – and when it comes to ocean freight, we can help. Choose Twill to get your ocean freight going.

Rail Freight Logistics Services: What to Know & How to Get Most Value

Rail transport service ;has a rich history of driving this country's economic growth by moving freight across North America, yet it is not front of mind as an option in today's fast-moving logistics and supply chain industry. ; ;

As such, rail transport service has been left behind in the way many people think of today's logistics and supply chain optimization, whether currently using rail service or not. ; ;

 

Rail Logistics Service

Rail transport service focuses on efficiently moving bulk material across great distances over the railroads’ vast network of tracks running throughout North America. ; Since rail service has to stay on the tracks, they can only move between rail-served buildings or yards specific for the bulk freight is intended to handle.

Unlike intermodal, rail service is not a direct competitor to truckload on price or transit. ; The service is much different and therefore not for everyone, but when it is a fit for bulk material, there are tremendous cost savings.

The challenge for most companies that could potentially take advantage of the service is that the freight is required to move from one rail-sided building to another, which are few and far between because of the cost and the logistics required to run the tracks off the mainline to a rail sided building. This situation can be overcome by aligning with any number of logistics companies that can provide cross-docking services to move the freight from a truck into rail equipment.
