Shippers Perspective

Shipping Industry & Supply Chain News

Shippers play a crucial role in the smooth functioning of global trade and commerce, as they enable businesses to transport goods to customers around the world. They work closely with manufacturers, retailers, and other businesses to ensure that products reach their intended destination in a timely and cost-effective manner.

There are different types of shippers, including ocean carriers, air carriers, and trucking companies. Each type of shipper specializes in a different mode of transportation, and they work together to form a complex and interconnected network known as the shipping supply chain.

They also play a key role in managing the logistics of the shipping process, including routing, tracking, and ensuring the timely delivery of goods.
