As sea freight is the transportation of goods by ocean vessel.
Physical transport of the goods is undertaken by:
- A liner service (scheduled services controlled by the owners of ships, where a defined route is serviced regularly and at set time intervals)
- Tramp service (usually charter transport ship with a flexible-route and no fixed schedule).
