Ocean Shipping Is Valuable Method for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses

Ocean shipping is the most cost efficient international shipping product available and with today’s technology, ensuring timely and consistent product is very manageable. More and more manufactures are now offering online reporting that is able to show exactly where your product is in the production cycle or how much finished product is on hand at a given time. Almost all the warehouse distribution companies (including AFP Global Logistics) have technology that is able to show what is in inventory, your complete shipping history, and many other custom reporting features that can give you an overview of your inventory in real time. Learn more about the benefits of ocean shipping in today’s blog, below.


Ocean freight is a cost-effective option for any business.

Ocean Shipping Is Valuable Method for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses

When coupled with the above technology, our order entry system and sales CRM software allow most small businesses the same control over product that large corporations have with their very expensive in-house technology. With LCL (less than container load) shipping, you can order and ship several pallets at one time or you could choose FCL (full container load) shipping to manage your product so that your customer doesn’t run out or have way too much inventory on hand. The customized timeline you develop based on client usage and available sailing dates, bundled with a good warehouse distribution program  generate a very cost effective logistics process for the medium to small business community. AFP Global Logistics can assist with every aspect of the ocean shipping process, from exporting and importing to customs brokerage and warehousing. We have a network of partners around the world who have enabled us to develop the network necessary to become the small and medium size business community’s customized ocean shipping provider.
