Aqua Air Enterprises - International Ocean Shipping & Freight

Container ship carrying ocean cargoOcean freight is the most economical way to ship products. Every month millions of containers reach U.S. ports. There is basically no size or weight limit for shipping via ocean freight. Compared to air freight, the transit time is longer, but the cost is lower via ocean freight. This segment of the transportation industry is regulated by the government and every company transacting business has to have a license. We are licensed by the Federal Maritime Commission (FMC) as a Non Vessel Operating Common Carrier-NVOCC. As a licensed NVOCC, we have the opportunity to secure contracts with a number of Vessel Operating Carriers - VOC and different NVOCCs, providing us access to the best ocean freight rates on the market.

Ocean freight rates for international ocean shipping & freight are based on the size and weight of the shipment, unless you are filling the whole container. For less than container load – LCL, you will be charged a Fee per volume (cubic meter) or weight (1,000 kilograms), whichever is greater. For example, if one cubic meter weighs only 500kg, you will pay 1CBM x Fee, or if the weight is 1,500kg, you will be charged 1.5 W x Fee. Ocean freight rates are also based on the type of commodity. Different commodities could have different rates for the same size and weight.

Full Container Load (FCL) rates are based on the size of the required container. Click here to access the container guide. The most popular containers are 20’ and 40’ containers. However, there is a limit on how much weight containers can handle. The States Highway authorities forbid overweight containers to be driven on public roads.
