Maritime transportation in the Philippines

The backbone of the increasingly globalized economy and international trading system is maritime transport. The developments in global GDP and trade are both key and primary driving forces for the development of marine transport.

Maritime transportation moves roughly 10 billion tonnes of containers of solid and liquid bulk freight across the world’s oceans each year, accounting for 80–90% of global trade. People and commodities have traveled by sea across continents and across waters throughout history. Although air travel proved to be superior for perishable and high-value commodities, marine transportation can successfully and efficiently transfer practically any goods.

Here at T1 Transport, we know that heavy businesses demand towage and marine solution services that are trustworthy, safe, and cost-effective. That is why our team and fleet of tugboats prioritize safety every time we set sail for your next requirement.

Advantages of Marine Transportation

The large number of advantages that may be found in this sort of operation is one of the most important aspects in the success of maritime transportation.

Storage capacity and volume

The ship is the mode of transportation with the highest capacity for moving enormous cargo loads. It cannot be compared to the storage capacity of a railway, plane, or truck.

A container ship nearly usually departs fully loaded, ensuring that the cost of each container is kept to a bare minimum. It is possible to share a container with other importers or exporters if you don’t require the entire container for your goods.

Safety and reliability

Ships are less weather-dependent than planes, therefore weather rarely delays their departures or arrivals.
