What is Shipping Transit Time?

Transit time is how long it takes to deliver cargo to its last destination after being picked up from a specified pick-up point. The amount of time required to move goods from one point to another deviates widely, so it’s essential to get these details before booking a shipment.

The shipment transit time relies on many variables such as weight and size, distance traveled, and mode of transportation operated. Ocean freight transit times could be from weeks to months, depending on the route or shipment method.

The story behind our sea freight calculator

Carlos and Ivan, two young employees at a customs agency, had just lost a customer who came around looking for an instant freight quote. Because it was the end of a working day on Friday, the earliest they could obtain it was the following Monday. Unacceptable for the client, Carlos and Ivan lost the deal. That sparked a mission: to create an online tool to facilitate the ocean freight quoting and booking process. With that, the iContainers ocean freight calculator was born.
