    What Is Cargo Shipping?

    Cargo shipping is the transport of physical goods or materials from one location to another. Shipping can occur over land, water or air.

    What is the difference between freight and cargo?
    Cargo is typically moving goods between locations in larger ships, trains or planes, whereas freight is typically moved in smaller vehicles like trucks.

    What’s the process of cargo shipping?
    The cargo shipping process consists of 5 steps:

    1. The first step of the cargo shipping process is the transport of the goods from the sender to the location of the company that handles the cargo shipping. This transport takes place in the country of origin of the goods.
    2. The cargo shipping company will store the cargo in a distribution center before it will be shipped by ship or plane.
    3. When the cargo is ready to be shipped, the cargo shipping company will transport the cargo from the distribution center to the airport or harbor where it will be loaded on a ship or plane.
    4. Once the cargo arrives at the airport or harbor of destination, the cargo shipping company will carry the cargo to its distribution center to store it.
    5. Finally, the cargo shipping company will make sure the cargo is transported from its distribution center to the address of the recipient of the cargo.

    How To Prepare For Cargo Shipping?

    As the sender of the cargo, make sure you have a mutual agreement with the recipient on who is responsible for arranging the shipping. This also applies to the costs involved in the shipping to the location of the cargo shipping company.

    Has it been agreed that the recipient is responsible for the goods if they are still stored at the cargo shipping company? Then the recipient is responsible for the transport to the location of the cargo shipping company. Has it been agreed that the recipient is only responsible for the goods at a later stage of the transport process? Then the shipper is responsible for the transport to the location of the cargo shipping company.

    How Do You Ship Freight?

    Any shipment of goods which is over 150 lbs is considered freight shipping. Shipping freight consist of 6 steps:

    1. 1. Pack the shipment
    2. 2. Estimate the freight classification in terms of weight and size dimensions
    3. 3. Choose a freight shipping company
    4. 4. Create a Bill of Lading for the carrier to acknowledge the receipt of freight for shipment
    5. 5. Transport the shipment to the freight shipping company or schedule a pickup
    6. 6. Track the shipment and receive acknowledgement from recipient upon freight delivery

    What is The Cheapest Way to Ship Freight?

    The cheapest way to ship freight is ground shipping.

    What Are The Different Types of Freight That Can Be Shipped?

    Compared with cargo, there are no specific types of freight. Almost anything can be shipped via freight, but rules for certain products can apply.

    How Are Cargo and Freight Shipping Calculated?

    Cargo and freight shipping are calculated by density, space and cube.

    1. 1. Measure the length (L), width (W) and height (H) of the freight or cargo in inches.
    2. 2. Get the cubic inches per item by multiplying the different dimensions (L x W x H). The total needs to be divided by 1,728 to convert cubic inches into cubic feet.
    3. 3. Weigh the shipment
    4. 4. Divide the weight by the cubic feet to get the density
    5. 5. Provide the dimensions together with the shipment destination, schedule and commodity to the cargo/freight shipping company to get the shipping rate.
