Sea Freight can also be referred to as Sea Cargo. It is the transport of goods in sea containers that are dispatched through sea ports. Cargo is a term used to denote goods or produce being transported generally for commercial gain. The cargo can be transported on a ship, plane, train or truck. Nowadays, containers are used in all intermodal long-haul cargo transport. A cargo ship is any sort of ship that carries cargo, goods, and other materials from one port to another. Cargo shipping via sea is generally considered one of the most economical methods of shipping and it will save you time and energy. Sea cargo is usually packed in containers.

Road freight (also sometimes referred to as ‘road haulage’ or ‘road transport’) is often the most effective mode of transport for Southern African countries. Not only is road freight a consideration for exports into Africa, but also a large number of exports from land-locked cities are moved down to the ports (Durban, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, etc.) by road. Even if you are located near a port, you are likely to use road transportation to move your goods from your factory to the quayside. Thus, road transportation may form part of your transportation considerations, even if you are shipping your goods by sea.
Local companies using air freight to get their goods to foreign markets are similarly likely to use road transportation to move their products from the factory to the airport. You should also not forget that road haulage may form a significant part of your transportation in countries in Europe, the US, Asia, etc., as the goods are moved from the port of discharge to your intended destination. Thus, road freight is likely to form an integral part of your transportation and logistical options.
