As a reputable logistics company that provides sea freight shipping in Singapore, at ALPS Global we have in-depth knowledge of goods that can be shipped, the correct procedures for shipping, essential paperwork, vessel arrangements, and contingency plans in case of unforeseen events. By partnering with us, you can have peace of mind, knowing that your freight is delivered to its destination with care.

Here are five factors you need to know about sea freight services.
  1. To transfer your items, you might not require an entire shipping container.

First-time shippers frequently assume they will require complete shipping containers for their cargo. Although this is partly true, you don’t have to employ full container loads if your goods don’t require much space. Instead, you can see whether alternative freight forwarding companies can assist you with shipping less-than-container loads (LCL).

Going the LCL route will result in the consolidation of your goods with other shipments, which will ultimately result in a reduction of your shipping expenses. Additionally, you can get excellent deals from freight forwarders who are looking for smaller shipments for their empty shipping containers.

  1. Pricing is easier than it appears to be.

In international sea freight shipping, figuring out the expenses of importing and exporting goods across borders can be challenging, but using ocean freight forwarding services is less expensive than doing it via air freight forwarders.

For instance, the total volume in cubic feet for LCL shipments can be calculated using the following straightforward formula: length x breadth x depth. Even while this technique often yields accurate results, some factors, such as how fragile or light the items are, may have an impact on the result.

  1. Watch out for unstated costs.

Fuel expenses may be one of the most puzzling charges on your transportation invoice, which is to be expected, but the majority of shippers don’t take into account the potential swings in oil and gas pricing.

Don’t be hesitant to inquire about the fuel surcharges so that you can better understand your price and how long it is valid. It’s possible that this week’s quote may not match last week’s.

  1. Be extremely cautious when wrapping your items.

Regardless of how knowledgeable ocean freight operators are, there are a lot of additional outside considerations to take into account while appropriately packaging your goods. Your initial packaging may be adequate at first, but it might not hold up while being transported in a shipping container.

A crane will be required to move the container onto and off of the ship, and it will then journey across the turbulent ocean for a considerable amount of time. It can be quite helpful to get the help of a reliable sea freight service in Singapore because they can provide knowledgeable guidance on how to properly pack your items for safe and protected passage.

  1. Ocean freight forwarders and ocean boats follow a separate schedule.

The cutoff dates for delivery for ocean forwarders are not the same as the sail dates for ships. The deadline for delivering your products to your forwarder is likely to be one day prior to the sail date, for example, if a ship’s itinerary sails to a particular destination on a Monday or Thursday.

To prevent delays, make sure you are familiar with your carrier’s schedule. Additionally, it may take up to two days or longer for cargo to pass through customs and be unloaded when they reach their destination, particularly if they were shipped by LCL.
