Maritime transport

Container ship with large capacity (many thousand PPE)

Maritime transport is the transport of goods or people via waterways. The advent of aviation has diminished the importance of sea travel for passengers, though it is still popular for short trips and pleasure cruises.

Freight transport by sea has been widely used throughout recorded history. Transport by water is much cheaper than transport by air and highly cost effective with regular schedulable cargoes, such as heavy loads, bulk cargos and trans-oceanic shipping of consumer products. Containerization revolutionized maritime transport starting in the 1970s.
