As international cargo shipping becomes increasingly complex, manufacturers struggle to maintain a competitive edge through strategic pricing, product placement and promotional campaigns. There has been a growing awareness among shippers of the many advantages to using a freight forwarding company to ship their product internationally.
Intermodal transport has become an essential aspect of the supply chain management process where it has seen steady growth over the past two decades.
There are many different shipping container sizes and configurations that a company can rely on to transport goods internationally. Shipping container sizes vary depending on the client’s needs and that can make it difficult to decide on the correct size, use, or service.
If your shipment cannot fill a 45 foot container, you can opt for a 20 foot container that could fill the bill. Of course you could always use LCL shipping (less than container load) if it’s even smaller in size.
There may be other shipping container sizes that are ideal for your particular company; there are also other options, depending on your firm’s shipping needs.
