Ocean freight rates can be complicated to understand, comprising a range of different charges. For this reason, it’s never easy to calculate precisely how much you will pay for an ocean shipment until you have a quote from your freight forwarder.
Carriers, customs services, insurance companies, and port authorities all require fees for handling and managing your goods. These fees are not always broken out clearly in ocean freight quotes, so it can be hard to understand where your money is being spent. At Shin Toyo Gate, we provide you with quotes that are broken down into individual elements, so you have complete transparency of your shipping costs.
It only takes a few moments to try our shipping cost calculator for yourself and discover the many advantages of our digital freight-forwarding solution. However, if you prefer to hear about the benefits before you try, here are four to consider:
- Rates available for thousands of ocean and air freight tradelanes
- A simple form for entering your shipping requirements
- Easy-to-understand quotes with a breakdown of all pricing elements
- One online freight calculator, multiple quotes – no need to enter shipment details countless times
If you’re not sure whether to ship your goods by sea or as air freight, or whether LCL or FCL is the best option for shipping overseas, start by requesting a multi-quote, which will give you prices for each freight mode to compare.
