SHIPPING

Shipping is basic process of transporting goods and cargo. Virtually every product ever made, bought, or sold has been affected by shipping. Despite the many variables in shipped products and locations, there are only three basic types of shipments: Land, Air, and Sea. Land or “ground” shipping can be either by train or by truck. Trucking is easily the most popular form of shipping. Even in Air and Sea shipments, ground transportation is still required to take the product from its origin to the airport or seaport and then to its destination. Global Cargo & Comm. Ltd. believes that ground transportation is typically more affordable than air shipments, but more expensive than shipping by sea. This is because trucks are much faster than ships and rail but slower than planes. Global Cargo can boast of vans and trucks of all sizes that make deliveries to sea ports and air ports where freight is moved in bulk also as well as take freight directly from the shipper to its destination in what is known as “a door to door” shipment. Global Cargo confidently boasts of dedicated service to all clients whether existing or yet be clients. Global Cargo also give counseling on shipping management procedures since we believe that ground shipping can be cheaper and less restrictive to size, quality, weight, and type of freight than by air transport. Air transport is usually reserved for products which must be sent within a shorter time frame. Some carriers offer ground shipping that operates on an exact timeline as air does. This is a recent development becoming mainstream among major carriers since the 1990s. Shipping can more generally refer to the transport of freight independent of the mode of transport.
