Hello guys! I have found out maritime transport is the transport of passengers or cargo by water.Maritime transport can be realized over any distance by boat,ship,sailboat etc over ocean and lakes through canals or along rivers.It is used by business for the delivery of goods from distant suppliers.
Maritime has the following advantages in our day to day life.The major ones are ;
.It is cheap.
. It is the ideal way to move big volume of cargo.
.It is safe.
.It eco-friendly .
Just think about how could it be in our roads if maritime transport was not there.I am sure jam could be our chorus!Imagine trucks carrying bulky goods along a busy road ,how could it be?I am sure enough that business and other things would not take place . A good example is going to school would not be accessible.Another more serious thing than jam is accidents.Those large trucks would therefore cause accidents.The reason being their too heavy.I really thank God for giving us water.
As we all know that there is something in this world without limitations.Maritime transport is accompanied by the following limitations.
.Longer lead of delivery times
.Could be costly
.Customs and excise restrictions
.Difficulties to monitor exact location of goods in transit
