The benefits and specifications of shipping transportation:

Usually cargo is moved to alternative depots for collection of more cargo, to ports or directly to the location desired. Eitherway, a customs procedure must be followed when necessary, in order to officially export the cargo and certify its trip! It takes knowledge and responsibility to handle the customs procedure, in either export or import services. The procedure varies in requirements, depending on the means of transport used and of course the countries where the cargo will originate from, travel through and finally be delivered.

The selection between ships is rather impressive.

Bulk carriers are used for shipping bulk commodities or foods. It can be recognized by the large box-like hatches on its deck, designed to slide outboard for loading.

Container ships are used to ship containerized cargo, which are most commonly seen, informally known as "box boats". This kind of ships carry the majority of the world's dry cargo.

Tankers are cargo ships for the transport of fluids, such as crude oil, petroleum products, liquefied petroleum gas, liquified natural gas and chemicals, but also vegetable oils, wine and other food. The tanker sector comprises one third of the world tonnage.

Reefer ships are cargo ships typically used to transport perishable commodities which require temperature-controlled transportation, mostly fruits, meat, fish, vegetables, dairy products and other foodstuffs.

Roll-on/roll-off ships, such as the Chi-Cheemaun, are cargo ships designed to carry wheeled cargo such as automobiles, trailers or railway carriages. RORO (or ro/ro) vessels have built-in ramps which allow the cargo to be efficiently "rolled on" and "rolled off" the vessel when in port. While smaller ferries that operate across rivers and other short distances still often have built-in ramps, the term RORO is generally reserved for larger ocean-going vessels.

A barge is a flat-bottomed boat, built mainly for river and canal transport of heavy goods. Most barges are not self-propelled and need to be moved by tugboats towing or towboats pushing them. Barges on canals (towed by draft animals on an adjacent towpath) contended with the railway in the early industrial revolution, but were outcompeted in the carriage of high value items due to the higher speed, falling costs, and route flexibility of rail transport.
