Why ocean transportation has benefits over others?

Answers 1

The Wright Brothers invented the first man planned flight called the airplane; which not only changed the view about how one can travel but also made an advancement in technology for the better world. It has made possible for us to travel long distances by saving our most precious amenity i.e. time. Now, people can cover the same distance within hours that used to take days. Although this might be good; it has not reached the point where it can be said for transportation of weight and cargo. The main factor that plays in air transportation is the cost and expenses that it induces and until and unless it's urgent it is wise to look into other options. Due to which still, Ocean Mode of Transportation is still the best and suitable option. Ocean transportation covers 90% of the global trade, whether it may be international trade, continental trade or intercontinental trade, in bulk or tons and tons of raw materials, import/export of manufactured goods would simply be not possible. Since weight and size plays a major factor in the industry, it is not viable to use other modes of transport rather than the sea. The major benefit of the Ocean freight is its less expensive method of shipping, also weight and size aren’t an issue whereas the same isn’t true for Air mode. Also keeping in mind, the adverse environmental effects that the air pollution causes, sea freight services are still considered much greener transportation. Finally, the benefits of sea transportation: a) Economical. b) Environment-friendly. c) Extensive global coverage. d) Suitable for products and goods that don’t have time as a barrier.
