March 22, 2021

  1. By Air
An important part of modern transportation. It provides safe, fast, convenient, and high-quality services, at high prices.
It’s suitable for those who have a limited delivery time for shipping.
  1.  By Rail
The cost is lower than air transport. Normally it is not affected by the weather, and the shipping procedures are simple.
However, the services network is limited to some areas, such as Europe, Asia, and Africa.

Recently the railway transport is becoming more and more popular because of China's Belt and Road Initiative.
For example, the Central Asia countries such as Kazakhstan
, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, etc. prefer rail shipping for its short time and cost-effective price.
  1. By Sea
The sea shipping accounts for more than 80% of the total shipping volume. It is the most cost-effective way.

For the reasons that:
a. The shipping volume by sea is 8 times than that by railway and 2000 times than that by air, so the overall shipping cost by sea is relatively the lowest.
b. It is suitable for almost all categories, regardless of oversize or overweight goods.
c. Besides, it has the widest coverage of the world, access to most countries and areas.

However, it has the disadvantages of slow speed, high risk of navigation, and unpunctual sailing dates.
