It means in about 30 days one can ship their goods inside an ocean container door to door to or from just about anywhere on the planet.

Ocean freight is also the most cost-effective way to move freight worldwide as modern super carriers can carry 15,000+ containers per sailing. The fact that any given vessel can travel distances estimated at up to ¾ of the distance to the moon and back in one year highlights the significance ocean freight has on our lives in the modern world.
