Ra­jat Khosla, Coun­try Man­ager, In­di­aFedEx Trade net­works, ob­served that over the last few years, ocean freight busi­ness has been grow­ing. As a whole, it has im­proved in terms of re­li­a­bil­ity and flex­i­bil­ity and has evolved into a more vi­able op­tion for many com­pa­nies. Most cus­tomers ship­ping via ocean still move goods via air, and each cus­tomer has vary­ing rea­sons for the mode of trans­port they choose.

“The num­bers in­di­cate the global freight for­ward­ing mar­ket in­creased 3.1 per cent in 2012, and the growth was due pri­mar­ily to sea freight for­ward­ing. As ris­ing fuel prices con­tinue to chal­lenge the air freight for­ward­ing seg­ment, ship­pers are choos­ing to utilise ocean for in­ter­na­tional moves.

FedEx Trade net­works de­liv­ers a choice of three dis­tinct in­ter­na­tional ocean freight for­ward­ing so­lu­tions pro­vid­ing cov­er­age in ma­jor mar­kets and trade lanes, in­clud­ing north Amer­ica, Europe, In­dia and Latin Amer­ica The prod­ucts are: FedEx In­ter­na­tional Di­rect Econ­omy oceanSM, FedEx In­ter­na­tional Di­rect Pri­or­ity and FedExSM In­ter­na­tional Direc­tDistri­bu­tion ocean.
