There are clear benefits of using sea freight services to meet your supply chain logistical needs. These benefits include:
In general, ocean shipping offers the lowest freight costs to shippers, especially over long distances. Ocean freight shipping costs can be 10-13 times less expensive than air freight shipping, according to some of the World Bank’s estimates.
Shipments of all sizes can usually be accommodated by sea freight companies. Smaller shipments may be grouped together with other cargo to fill a container, allowing transportation costs to be shared. One or more containers can be filled with larger cargo, giving shippers unmatched bulk options. Want to shift awkwardly sized cargo such as cars, or heavy machinery? No problem – ocean shipping carriers can accommodate almost any sized and shaped cargo.
When compared to sea shipping, air and many other forms of transportation have much higher carbon footprints – a definite disadvantage for the environment. Ships, on the other hand, provide the most carbon-efficient mode of transportation and produce fewer grams of exhaust gas emissions for each ton of cargo transported than any other shipment method. These already-low emissions continue to trend downward as technology advances, new ships come online and as liquefied natural gas (LNG)-powered options are utilised.
At Messiah Freight, we specialise in shipping cargo to and from the UK, Pakistan, Dubai & China. We do offer bespoke shipping support for other countries, but our specialist focus on these four routes ensures that we can secure the best possible prices possible for our clients.

Sea freight involves the transport of large amounts of goods by carrier ships. After the goods have been packed in containers, they are loaded onto a vessel. Sea freight is cost-effective for transporting large quantities over long distances due to its capacity to carry approximately 18,000 containers.
Ocean freight charges are calculated based on base rates established by freight and shipping companies. A Full Container Load (FCL) charges are generally based on the container size, such as 20′, 40′, or 45′, and the type of container – refrigerated or non-refrigerated.
LCL consignments are charged based on their weight or volume, whichever is greater. LCL base rates are calculated by multiplying the weight in tons or volume in cubic metres (CBM) by the freight company’s LCL base rate.
Sea freight is vastly cheaper than air freight. If cost reduction is at the top of your list of priorities, then sea freight shipping might be your best option. Despite longer shipping times and increased possibilities of delays, sea freight can be 10-13x cheaper than air freight.
Essentially, freight forwarding is the strategic planning and execution of logistics for international deliveries on behalf of the shipper. Freight forwarders are responsible for negotiating freight rates, tracking containers, preparing customs documents, and consolidating shipments.
