The industry of domestic shipment is pivotal to the development of a country. With 7,107 islands in the Philippines, it is a fact that most of our domestic trade relies upon local interisland shipping, particularly in the Visayas and Mindanao. Thus, our country needs a reliable and efficient shipping industry to fulfill its critical role. At this point is where freight forwarder companies like Transportify can help with the domestic shipment. We can provide freight forwarder services that are dependable, cost-effective, and that align with the Philippines’ domestic shipment goals in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
What Are the Types of Domestic Shipment in the Philippines?
Land freight refers to cargo movement from point A to point B through either truck or railway. In the Philippines, land freight through trucking is the most present because we do not have railways to support such operations. Even though sea and air freight forwarder services may appear more sophisticated than through land, businesses often prefer this because it is more flexible, steadfast, and safe. The Philippines has its bodies of water in between the major regions, but the land is also considerably large, most especially in Luzon.
Sea freight is a method of transporting large quantities of goods by ship. Goods are packed into containers before being loaded onto the ship. One of the notable advantages of sea freight could be it is considerably cheaper compared to others. It has a lower cost because it operates on consolidation, may it be small up to the heaviest and largest cargo. Once the vessel leaves the dock, it carries tons of consolidated cargo from different owners to its pier of destination. However, transporting by the sea has its disadvantages as well. Domestic shipment via the sea can be slower compared to land and air freight forwarder services. Also, the factor of bad weather and other unforeseen circumstances while at sail can add to its delay. It can be harder to track your cargo at some point due to signal issues and other technological gaps.
The last type of domestic shipment in the Philippines is air freight. When it comes to moving express cargo around the country, and even the world, air freight forwarder services are the most valuable. It uses the same gateways as the passenger airlines of our country. It may be fast, but it is not cheap. The demand for faster delivery charges high cost because it factors in fuel and maintenance for the aircraft that will transport it. Freight transport via air is less likely to face delays because it is a highly regulated operation. However, it usually has a limited carrying capacity; certain products are unsuitable for air transport, and, of course, it is dependent on weather conditions, like passenger flights.
