How to Get the Best Ocean Freight Rates

DATE: 11/25/09

The best ocean freight rates are a combination of a fair price and excellent service from a reliable sea shipping company. If you’re looking to get the best bang for your buck, follow these simple tips.

• Compare quotes online—Thanks to the internet, getting a shipping quote online is fast and easy. Most shipping companies have an instant quote form on their websites that you can easily fill out to get a quick quote. Fill out these forms as best you can to get the most accurate quote possible. Compare ocean freight rates across a few different companies to determine if you’re getting a fair price.

• Quality of service matters—You should never choose a company solely because they offer the lowest ocean freight rates. Quality matters too. You always want to make sure you’re working with a reputable ocean freight company that staffs well-trained employees to handle your shipment. Furthermore, the customer service offered by the ocean freight company is also important. Customer service agents should be knowledgeable and friendly.

• Consider sharing container space—One easy way to save money on ocean freight shipping is to share container space. If your shipment is less than a container load, you can share the container with other exporters. This way, you are only being charged for the space you use, not the entire container.
