Ask Now

What is a freight forwarder?

Freight forwarding deals with international or multi-national import and export. Acting as an intermediary between you and various transportation services. Handling the considerable logistics needed to co-ordinate your move efficiently and affordably.

How long does Air Freight take?

Airport to airport 3-5 days on average. Door to door varies depending on customs clearance, estimate 5-7 days. Delays and/or changes to schedules can happen. The best way to make the cargo ship as quickly as possible is to make sure all paperwork is properly filed before hand, this eases the customs process.

I heard that shipping rates change frequently. Why is that?

Global fuel prices have a big affect, it’s called the Bunker Fuel factor (BAF). This is a floating surcharge that the Carrier’s can change when oil prices rise or fall. Another factor is when the Carrier has increases in costs such as when Terminal costs rise.

As Air Freight Forwarders we can’t control the airline rates but we can make sure we find the best possible prices and rout for your shipment.

Is there a maximum size or weight?

This varies depending on the airline. But as a general rule of thumb, normal maximum cargo dimensions are 120in x 80in x 60in.

As the weight and size increase so will the cost. If your cargo is oversized or requires special handling, please enquire about special rates.

What do I do regarding customs?

If your quotation is for a door to door service we will take care of this for you. Certain countries require you to attend the customs office to sign off the shipment – your quotation package will confirm what’s necessary for your destination.
