Sea transportation provides a significant solution for businesses operating in various sectors worldwide. Sea transport involves loading goods onto a sea vessel and ensuring the safe transportation of these goods to their destination. This mode of transportation, where speed is not a crucial factor, is particularly preferred for transporting low-value goods. However, due to its susceptibility to technological advancements, it has become a rapidly evolving and changing industry, regardless of the value of the cargo being transported.

What sets sea transportation apart from other modes is its ability to carry a substantial amount of cargo at once, its reliability, extensive capacity, and lower risk of cargo damage and accidents. Sea transportation is 3.5 times cheaper than rail transportation and seven times cheaper than road transportation. On the other hand, air transportation remains the most expensive mode. Therefore, sea transport is often preferred over other modes due to its cost-effectiveness.

Sea transportation, enabling access to every corner of the world, can be broadly categorized into two types based on the types of voyages: tramp and liner. In tramp transportation, where the presence of cargo is crucial, specifying a particular route is challenging. Shipowners in tramp transportation prefer directing their ships to areas with a higher likelihood of obtaining cargo. In liner transportation, the focus is on services rather than the product. Timing is emphasized in this type of service, where the departure and arrival dates of the ship are known in advance. This allows shippers to obtain information about their transportation needs in advance.

When considering cargo and vessel types, sea transportation can be evaluated under five categories: tanker transportation, Ro-Ro (Roll-on/Roll-off) transportation, container transportation, combined transportation, and bulk cargo transportation.
