Best Practices Logistics: Handling the Ocean Freight Shipment (Canada) Mobile App

The Best Practices Logistics: Handling the Ocean Freight Shipment mobile app offers a useful set of guidelines that should be followed when preparing goods for ocean freight shipments. Just like air freight shipments, there are specific steps that freight forwarding companies and sea freight shippers must take to ensure the safe shipment of goods. The helpful app makes it easy to ensure that goods are properly packaged, labeled and sealed before they are sent off for sea shipping.

Easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet, the ocean freight shipments app covers a variety of sea freight requirements that must be taken care of for each container load. This includes adding the appropriate carrier labels, adding international trade and customs information, including a full freight audit and more.
