Air Freight is the fastest and most expensive means of transporting a shipment. Rates are calculated by weight and charged per kg and (volumetric weight).
Sea Freight is the most economical means of transporting goods. There are two main ways to send goods by Sea Freight.
LCL shipments are for a given quantity of goods that do not meet a specific full container minimum. Subsequently, the goods are placed in a wooden crate specifically designed to the size of your order. LCL shipments carry some risk especially for goods that may be considered fragile.
Because of the increased handling that comes with LCL shipments we do advise that buyers purchase insurance before shipping to cover against any damage incurred during the transiting of the goods. Insurance is generally charged at 2% of the total of the goods being shipped. We would be more than happy to arrange insurance for you.
FCL Shipments are available in 20ft (33cbm), 40ft (67.3cbm), and 40ft High Cube (64cbm). These containers are subject to considerably less handling as they are loaded in Manila, Philippines and unloaded only at the destination.
FCL shipments become considerably more economical than LCL once a shipment exceeds 13cmb. Local clearance charges are per cubic meter or per container. Once that threshold of 13cmb is passed it is most often more cost effective to ship with Full Container Loads.
