International Maritime Cargo Transportation: Features and Advantages
The main advantage of this type of transportation is the reduction of costs, because maritime cargo transportation neither depends on the state of the roads, nor requires the participation of a large number of experts involved. Cargo can be transported in bulk, and this is another advantage of maritime transportation, as motor or rail transportation of the same volume of goods needs more specialized equipment.
Maritime cargo transportation has a few disadvantages as well. Vessels move slowly and cargo transportation from port to port requires considerably more time than its transportation by air. In addition, the movement of vessels depends on the weather and unforeseen delays may occur on the way. On the other hand, the low speed of maritime transport is compensated by the low cost of this type of cargo transportation and an impressive carrying capacity of ships.
It should be taken into account that, the customers, whose production facilities and warehouses are located close to the port cities, order international maritime transportation customers most often. In Russia, maritime cargo transportation has its own specific features. In winter, the Baltic Sea and the port waters of Murmansk are partially frozen creating additional difficulties for the carriers. Nevertheless, hundreds of tons of different cargoes, such as metal, wood, industrial products, are monthly delivered to the country by sea.
