A Ship or Vessel is a type of vessel with the right and necessary structure to carry out all kinds of cargo trips over considerable distances, due to its size, strength and solidity, and which is also ideal for highly important maritime transport. If we go a little deeper we can say that a vessel is any ship or ship-borne vessel, but not any ship or ship is necessarily a vessel. Freight is what we know as the rental of a means of transport, and the Vessel Charter would be a kind of contract of carriage of goods by sea.
International sea freight quotation.
The process of Vessel Chartering is carried out when hiring a maritime transport for the international transfer of goods, which can be a ship. This expression can also be used to refer to the price to be paid when moving the cargo to be transported. In some cases this term is also used to define the cargo itself on board.
A freight forwarder in transport quotations uses terms that most of his customers do not understand at first, both in full containers and in maritime groupage. FLC stands for Full Container Load and refers to full container loads.
LCL (Less than container load) refers to sea groupage and is the most commonly used method of transport for goods that alone are insufficient to complete a container.
The Freight Rate Quote is very volatile and is frequently updated by the shipping lines, always adjusting for fuel surcharges or other circumstances. There are portals on the Internet that allow the possibility of knowing online the sea freight rates and their subsequent contracting.
