FREIGHT vs. CARGO   貨物、貨物運賃 vs. 貨物


  • Freight and cargo are goods carried by air, sea, or land transportation.

    Be Careful! It's more common to call a ship or a plane that carries goods rather than passengers a “cargo ship” or a “cargo plane”, but a train of this kind is usually called a “freight train”.

    Freight is also the money you pay for having goods carried by air, sea, or land transportation.
  • freightcargo は、航空便、船便、陸上輸送などで運搬される品物のことです。

    注意: 乗客ではなく貨物を運ぶ船舶や航空機は、cargo ship (貨物船)や cargo plane (貨物輸送機)と呼ぶのが普通ですが、列車の場合は、たいてい freight train (貨物列車)と呼ばれます。

    また、freight は、航空便や船便、陸上輸送などで、貨物を運搬してもらうために支払う料金、つまり、貨物運賃をさすこともあります。
