whats liner freight rate?
liner is a shipping service that transport goods one place to another place


It is just a price with which a certain cargo is delivered from the place of origin to the place of destination.It works on the principle of “charge what  trade can bear” . The rates are made even high until shippers begin to look for cheap rates some other place.

It depends upon :
