Freight shipping is the process of transporting goods by different commercial resources. There are mainly three main types of shipments: household goods, freight shipments and express parcels. In cases, when the cargo is very heavy and cannot be considered as a parcel, it is then labeled freight. Cargo airlines and ocean freight usually carry different forms of freight. However, it is the duty of every company to track their own freight shipping rates to keep costs low.
Generally, all international cargo transportation should go through either cargo airlines, or through ocean freight. These shipping methods are quite expensive hence it is recommended for companies to keep track of the shipping rates being charged so that they can maintain the lowest cost levels possible. There are professionals who cal themselves cargo agents, who actually process the procedure of keeping a track of the current shipping prices, and where the best rates can be found.
