Delivery of cargo from China
In the modern market, trucks, vans, intermodal trains are used. Efficiency is a priority when choosing the type of transportation. This rule forms the basis of AF-Group’s services for the delivery of goods from China. This approach is also present in international logistics.
Cargo transportation by sea
The volume of cargo transportation by sea reaches 4/5 of the share of international traffic. Goods and products in containers cross distances from one end of the planet to the other.
The reason for the popularity of sea freight lies in the following advantages of this type of delivery over others:
The difference between sea transport is in the minimum of restrictions. This is based on the availability of natural, spacious routes for the dispatch of goods. Shipping versus rail or road provides a wide range of delivery options. Carrying capacity is the main reason for using the sea for cargo transportation.
- Roominess and carrying capacity
The ability of maritime transport to carry more volume increases operational benefits. Such scales are not available for rail and road transit. This can be seen in comparison: one vessel achieves a carrying capacity equivalent to three hundred wagons.
Transportation of cars is carried out on special ships with rollers. Bulk materials are transported on pallets. Loading and unloading is carried out by means of a crane. Pallets are placed in the hold. Shipment is performed upon arrival at the pier or on board. Bulk materials are not defined as palletized transport. These include cereals, clay, building mixtures, lumber, etc. The handling of such goods does not fall under the types of heavy or project ones due to inseparability. Container transportation is showing an increase in demand in ports. Suppliers of auto parts and equipment, manufacturers of components, household goods, food products prefer to use sea transportation.
- Acceptable price of delivery of cargo from China
The savings are attributed to the scale of transportation of goods by sea. The cost of shipping a unit of production is comparatively reduced – the freight rate is reduced. In addition to the advantages of sea transport, there are a number of disadvantages. There are often delays due to unfavorable weather conditions. The risk lies in determining the date of dispatch and delivery of goods. The speed of sea transport is another drawback, land transportation is faster.
Delivery of cargo from China to Ukraine by plane
The cost of air transportation is explained by the advantages of this type over the rest. Railway and sea modes of transport are inferior in speed and quality. Air travel is not limited to earthly conditions. This type of delivery is distinguished by urgency. It is more profitable to send perishable food, expensive goods, tools, equipment by air. Time is money, this is the main rule of business. The faster the delivery, the higher the cost. For this reason, there is an acceleration of shipping.
Cargoes from China by railway transport
The containers undergo further logistic distribution at the seaport. Some are sent to their destination by train. Railway transport is used in the transportation of metals, lumber, coal products. This is explained by the ability to deliver goods by direct routes. This is an advantage over road transport. Bulk or long distance shipment is recommended to be carried out by rail. Competent transit organization saves customers time and money. AF-Group’s logistics will save resources.
Delivery of goods from China to Europe by rail saves more than half the cost than air transportation. Time costs are halved compared to sea transit. The weather conditions do not affect the operation of the railway transport. This is the advantage of this type of transportation. Among the advantages of rail freight transportation, it lacks flexibility, which explains the loss of the share of logistics amid growing demand for road transportation.
