Compared with container transportation, bulk cargo transportation has a wider range and fewer restrictions. Unnecessary transfer links are reduced, which greatly reduces the transportation cost. But also because of its simple packaging, the damage rate of bulk cargo transportation is much higher than that of container transportation. Therefore, whether marine goods are transported in bulk depends on their own nature and the added value of the goods. The advantages of containers in packaging are particularly obvious, including the following aspects:
1) The container has the effects of resisting wind and rain, avoiding light and earthquake, which can greatly reduce the cargo damage;
2) Containers are handled in full containers, which greatly facilitates transportation, loading and unloading;
3) The lead seal number of the container is unique. You can use the lead seal number to query the relevant basic information of the container. Therefore, it can ensure that the goods of the owner of the goods will not be lost or stolen;
4) Some containers have thermal insulation refrigerators, which can keep many fresh items fresh for a long time, which is its unique advantage.
Based on the above advantages, container transportation has been adopted by many shippers. It is a convenient and sensitive transportation method. Container transportation can greatly reduce the cargo damage formed in the transportation process. For example, it can resist the harm caused by some inevitable factors such as wind and rain and external forces. Container affairs have been favored by a wide range of cargo owners because of its high guarantee and low transportation cost.
