There are currently 73408 vessels at sea now transporting goods around the world, Across the Ocean Shipping will have organised packing, loading, customs clearances and payments of freight of all kind to make sure cargo is loaded onto these vessels and liaising with agents at the arrival destination to ensure all goods arrive in a timely way. Vessels can be tracked through various websites and arrival times – watching the journey of your cargo can be an exciting and nerve wracking time. Across the Ocean Shipping Operations Team can provide information alongside your shipment from information provided by shipping lines and customs. Once the vessel has arrived, has been unloaded and your cargo is safely at your destination relief if probably a feeling you will experience. You can now enjoy your personal effects, sell the goods you have shipped or drive the car that has just arrived.
Have you ever felt like a vessel? I bet a pregnant woman can feel like a vessel travelling on a very long journey for 9 months; carrying extremely fragile and important cargo. Similar to being able to track the vessel and its progress parents to be can view their baby growing on various scans throughout pregnancy and will also receive an eta of when their cargo will arrive! But will it happen just like in the shipping world?! Probably not quite.....labour can be unpredictable lasting sometimes for only a short period of time but sometimes taking a ridiculously long time; maybe even a whole week. Once the precious cargo has arrived a whole new world of opportunities and challenges will arise maybe not so dissimilar as when your cargo arrives on the vessel it was shipped from port to port on.
I guess from my thoughts and comparisons on vessels seem worlds apart but the main goal is that cargo arrives safely and on time – maybe sometimes there might be a few more hiccups and challenges along the way and here at Across the Ocean Shipping our team in Sales, Operations and Accounts will make the journey less stressful and more enjoyable.
