Shipping has always been one of the efficient sources of income for our country, as in addresses transportation matters in order to export and import products for international trade. The shipping industry helps people finish tasks faster, receive goods sooner, and make things happen easier. Without the existence of our shipping industries, many countries wouldn't be able to participate in long-distance trade activities, which helps boost economic development.
Globally, there are four different types of shipping services. These are mainly 1) road or ground which is the standard way of transporting goods, 2) rail which is still centered on land, 3) ship (ocean) where goods are sent off overseas, and 4) air, which is considered the fastest way to transport goods and other services.
But as always, we must see to it that we are working with trusted, reliable, and proactive partners. What really are the top shipping companies in the Philippines? Let's find out.
