In ocean freight shipping, goods are packed in shipping containers and the freight forwarder books container or space with the shipping agent. Shipment moves to the port and passes through customs at the point of origin. Goods are loaded into full containers or shared containers depending on the volume and put on the cargo ship for transportation.
When they reach the destination, goods pass through customs again generally arranged by the shipping agent and upon payment of duties and taxes, released for delivery. The goods are delivered to the receiver either in the same container or on pallets.
