There is no country that is fully self-sufficient so shipping is needed all around the world and it is an industry that is growing. • Container shipping is a method used to move goods overseas. This is the most popular method because it has the most efficient turnaround and a small amount of cargo handling. The tradeoff is that by ocean it can take up to six weeks. In some cases, it could be even longer. But, the most cost-effective method is ground shipping. Ground shipping is also the slowest method of delivery. Air freight is the fastest and most expensive form of shipping. Normally, if the order volume is large then the shipping cost will decline.
