The meaning of this method is to transfer goods from one ship to another ship, this method is used in the conditions of embargo and small ports.
Large ships do not enter ports that do not have the ability to dock, in this case, the ship docks at a nearby port and unloads the desired goods to a smaller ship, and with this method, it goes to the port and unloads the goods.
In the cross-staffing method, one of the ships must have a crane to unload the desired goods, and this causes risks to threaten the goods while moving.

Sea transportation by transshipment method:
