Fixed transit times of container vessels facilitate exact pre-plannings for transports.
High frequency of departures
Container vessels in liner service have a comparatively high sailing frequency. “Multipurpose vessels depart less frequently – for example only once a month, depending on their route and destination”, Florian Straßer explains. Container vessels have fixed routes. “They do not change their routes or call additional ports on short notice as it may happen when shipping via tramp break bulk services”, our expert says. “Thus, container vessels have fixed transit times compared to many break bulk vessels – which, of course, facilitates exact pre-planning for project cargo transports.”
