Maritime transport is a way of using ships to transport goods between ports in different countries and regions through maritime channels. It is the most important mode of transport in international trade. More than 2/3 of the total volume of international trade and 90% of the total volume of China's import and export cargo are transported by sea: there are two main modes of maritime transport, namely liner transport and chartering transport.

Marine transportation is carried out by means of natural channels, which are not limited by roads and tracks, and have stronger passing capacity. With the change of political, economic and trade environment and natural conditions, the route can be adjusted and changed at any time to complete the transportation task.

With the development of the international shipping industry, modern shipbuilding technology is becoming increasingly sophisticated and ships are becoming larger and larger. The supergiant oil tanker has reached more than 600000 tons, and the carrying capacity of the fifth generation container ship has exceeded 5000TEU.
