MARITIME TRANSPORT & ADVANTAGES OF SEAWAY TRANSPORTATION

MARITIME TRANSPORT

MARITIME TRANSPORT

Sea transport is the most used type of transportation especially in international transportation. Today, 90% of the world trade is carried out by sea. In addition to being cheap by sea transportation, it is a very convenient type of transportation in transporting large quantities and volumes of cargo at long distance.
 
The bulk transport capacity is maximized in maritime transport, so the unit cost of transport is low. This method, which has high security facilities, is also moderate in terms of energy consumption compared to other transportation methods and it is a great advantage in terms of transporting large quantities of cargoes in the intercontinental transport, although the delivery time of the cargo is long compared to other transportation methods.

In particular, the transportation capacity of the industrial raw materials in large tonnages at one time, the cheapest cost compared to other transportation methods (sea transport by 3.5, according to the railway route; 7 according to the road and 22 times cheaper than the airway is expressed), The major advantages of maritime transport.

In addition to being cheap by sea transportation, it is a very convenient type of transportation in transporting large quantities and volumes of cargo at long distance. The bulk transport capacity is maximized in maritime transport, so the unit cost of transport is low. 

This system, which has high security facilities, is also moderately energy efficient compared to other transport methods. Although the realization period is long according to other methods, it is a great advantage to carry large quantities of cargoes in the intercontinental transport. 
 
Due to its cost and capacity advantages, maritime transport is very popular due to air and road transportation. Container ships can carry thousands of containers in one go, take significant distances between the continents, reduce loads to several ports or even reach the smallest ports with transfer vessels operating between the central ports.

ADVANTAGES OF SEA TRANSPORTATION

  • It is much less costly than air and road transport.
  • From the port to which the goods are loaded, until the ship arrives at the port, the ship will not face any customs procedures or legislative enforcement, even if the ship is subjected to a large number of ports and countries.
  • It is unlikely that there is a chance of accident compared to road transport.
  • Ships capable of loading thousands of containers at the same time allow high capacity shipments according to other transport methods.

DISADVANTAGES OF MARINE TRANSPORTATION

  • There is a risk of damage, especially in container loading and unloading operations at the port, because thousands of different types of materials are loaded and unloaded with the same personnel and handling, the handling process is risky.
  • Since the container is transported under open air conditions, the material inside it is likely to be affected by unfavorable weather conditions especially on long trips.
  • Transit times are very high. In addition to the process required for the distance traveled by the ship, port operations and port operations at the time of ship departure and unloading phase can significantly extend the total process of transportation.
  • Weather conditions are highly affected by transit time and property security. Departure-arrival time flexibility is very low.
  • The process of ship shipment is limited to the nearest ports to the actual address, integration with road installations is a must, increasing the risk of extra time loss and damage to the material.
