Three methods of downloading the ocean container
Shipping containers are usually loaded and ocean led by the shipper. After that, they are transported via container or by rail to the ocean port, where they are loaded on a ship and go directly to the destination port.
“live loading” - this means that the driver of the truck-container carriers’ company, will deliver ocean container for loading to the place of your location, or a place of loading and will wait the entire time of loading. After loading the ocean container will be oceanled for an international shipment. Time of the loading of marine containers, included in the cost is from one to two hours. If you exceed this time, you will pay about $ 75 per hour for each additional hour of loading time.
- “Drop and Pull” - this means that the driver of the truck-container carriers’ company, will take the ocean container for the load to the place of your location and will leave it there for several days. After this time, he will be back to pick up and deliver you loaded and ocean led ocean container at the container park (container yard - CY) company for international shipping by ocean. If we are talking about calculation the full cost of shipping goods by ocean, then cost of delivery within America, in this case using the service “to leave and take away, approximately worth twice as much as a service “live loading”. However, the services “leave and take away” has a distinct advantage in the fact that the shipper can not hurry the loading, and is always provided in advance of cargo insurance for freight container.
- “Quality download in warehouse” - (please do not confuse our service with the service of the regular shipping companies), when the shipper delivers its cargo to a company’s’ warehouse that only specializes in high quality loading cargo in shipping containers. Once your shipment is received and accepted at the terminal, it will be loaded and ocean led in shipping containers. After that, your loaded and ocean led ocean container delivered to a container park (container yard – CY) company for international shipping by ocean.
Commercial location - location of the loading of the goods provided by a ramp to load, that is, when loading the container are joined with a ramp or cargo loader. The shipper is responsible for loading and securing cargo in shipping containers set for loading. When your container (s) shipped and left to the place of loading, keep in mind that you should receive confirmation and a copy of a warehouse receipt, issued the driver of the truck – container, with the signature, date and place of loading, as well as with the serial number of the container.
Residential location - depending on the ability to load and an entrance of the truck – container. There is no capacity to load cargo with a ramp or cargo truck. The shipper must load the ocean container’s themselves. The shipper is responsible for loading and securing cargo in shipping containers.
Warehouse - depending on the ability to load and an entrance of the truck – container. The shipper must deliver a pre-packaged goods to the closest and most accessible international warehouse / terminal in a company that will transport the cargo. As soon as the warehouse receives the goods, shipping containers will be provided to the warehouse for loading of the cargo. The price will include all costs associated with the delivery of the goods, the costs associated with obtaining goods in a warehouse, storage (if any), loading and insurance of cargo at the port for its future maritime shipment.
