The terms are used interchangeably, but often referred to in different ways.
A freight boat is a type of freighter that can be built to carry up to 150 people and carry a load of more than 1,000 pounds.
It is often referred as a cargo ship because it is usually packed with cargo.
The cargo can include clothing, footwear, furniture, furniture-related equipment, furniture and other goods, or it can include food, fuel and other materials for cooking.
The freight ship carries goods for sale and sells them for profit.
The term cargo ship also refers to ships that carry goods for distribution and is sometimes used to describe the same ship.
Freight ships carry the following commodities: food, clothing, household goods, household appliances, furniture goods, machinery, household supplies, footwear goods, food preparation equipment, clothing and other articles for use as personal or household needs, clothing for use in the home, clothing goods for personal use, footwear for sale or to be sold or exchanged, household furniture and related equipment for use by the household, and other items used to support the activities of the household.
A cargo ship carries all or part of its cargo and passengers.
Freighters are often built for heavy and/or long haul cargo, with the cargo and cargo equipment carried on board and unloaded in the terminal.
Freighter companies often provide crews to help move goods to the port of departure, and they may have the ship’s own facilities for maintenance and repair.
A company that owns or operates a cargo shipping company is called a freight shipping company.

A small container is the type of container used for shipment of small items such as food, household items, or household supplies.
The size and type of the container is dependent on the amount of cargo, the load carried, and the location of the load.
A ship’s cargo is usually unloaded at the dock in the port where it is to be loaded into the ship.
A port may also hold containers for storage.
Cargo containers usually are made of wood, canvas, metal, or plastic.
A crewmember may be employed to help load and unload cargo and haul the container to the ship, but not to haul cargo to the cargo port.
In some cases, a crewmember will be employed on the ship as a shipboard engineer.
An engineer may be an engineer, a crane operator, a driver, or a mechanic.
An individual who works for a ship is called an employee.
A person who is employed to perform work for a freight company, such as a yardman, is called its agent.
The agent is a person who receives payment from the company for the work performed, such that the person receives a commission on the work.

Freights and cargo are a large segment of the American economy, and there are more than 300 container companies in operation worldwide.
There are more container ships in operation today than there were in 1975.
Some container ships are operated by container companies.
Others are operated independently.
Most container ships carry between 40 and 60 containers, and some are equipped with at least four containers.
The capacity of a container is equal to the volume of cargo that it can hold, which includes both food and personal supplies.
Container ships carry goods and people on the same vessel, as long as they are in one of the containers.
A commercial cargo ship may carry more than one load.
For example, a container may carry a truck load of tires for use on the highway, a load for shipping goods between a port and a warehouse, and a load used for shipping cargo.
In addition, a ship may contain an entire warehouse, which can hold more than 200,000 boxes of groceries or merchandise for shipment, or multiple warehouses that can store different goods.
A passenger can be onboard a container if they are 18 years of age or older.
