When you contact ocean freight forwarders for international shipping, there would be many factors which would decide the cost that you would have to bear. There are mainly two elements, the actual cost for sea freight that would be charged by the operator and the costs which you would have to bear for the clearance and handling at the ports. When it comes to container goods, whether you ship a full container load would also make a difference. Most ocean freight forwarders have the tariffs based on the container rates which would make it more economical to ship the full container.
