Delivery of the goods by boat is one of the oldest and most economic means of transport. River shipping is undergoing decay period, but international sea transport increased enormous. Many of Belarusian importers and exporters do prefer container shipments by sea. The reason is a number of undisputable advantages of sea transport.

Sea transport


Main advantages of sea transport:

• Reasonable freight rates due to increased payload delivery rate of modern ships and higher business cluster;
• Forecastability of container delivery by sea;
• Higher safety in comparison with other means of transport;
• Oversize cargo transportation possibility;
• Flexible routes in comparison with trains and trucks which are literally anchored on the rails and roads;
• The lowest number of loss occurrences in comparison with other means of transport;
• Availability of special tare – containers. Modern containers allow transportation of nearly all types of goods without any contact to other cargo.
Nevertheless in spite of undisputable advantages sea transport has some weak points
