      Shipping and Sea Freight Costs Table Website - Latest list of shipping charges

      When sourcing products from suppliers around the world, I need to add them to freight costs, which isn't a simple thing to do.

      Would any of you know a website that shows basic sea freight costs? Just to get a better idea?

      Thanks

      Sadly there's not a site that I know of. One, forwarders keep their rates a secret, two they always quote on specific schedules. Also, freight surcharges and fees will fluctuate all the time.

      The easiest way is to remain in close contact with the sales department of numerous forwarding companies, and ask them to email you updates on the schedules you'll use.

      You're welcome. If you think about it, it would be almost impossible to maintain a site like that with all the possible routes and schedules.

      This is true, we need to keep in direct contact with a bunch of shipping companies just to keep up with the changing freight charges.

      It's really difficult to find an accurate freight costs from a website. It's better to get in contact with professional freight forwarders and check their rates for specific demands. Good luck/Major Supplier

      I would say that you should just call up the shipping company, and go straight to their sales department, because forwarding companies also charge for their interest. So prices will be different. They change every month, due to many factors. So just call up sales and ask for an approximate quote for one month and use it.

      You can get shippers to bid on your consignment at International container shipping.
