Ocean Freight

Transmodal Ocean Freight

Robust ocean freight solutions tailored to meet your ocean freight needs.

Ocean freight is the life-blood of global commerce. In 2019, 226 million container moves traversed the globe, carrying cargo valued at over $12 trillion. This is more than the combined GDPs of Japan, Germany and India, the world’s 3rd, 4th and 5th largest economies. From Shanghai, to Mumbai to Los Angeles, international trade continues to shrink the globe for even the casual shipper, allowing access to suppliers and buyers all over the world. Ocean freight is the most commonly used and least expensive method of international transportation, so if you are looking to ship that container of sold goods to Accra or Auckland, Transmodal has you covered.
