It is important to know that Sea cargo makes around 85% or more of the movement of goods worldwide with over 50, 000 of these merchant cargo ships including tankers, bulk carriers, and container ships currently involved in the shipping business. However, Container ships have since changed the way freight transport business is conducted since their entry into the market.
