What are your goods categorized as?

Oftentimes general goods such as car parts or clothing products are generally safe to ship. However, sometimes dangerous and sensitive goods such as hazardous chemicals or perishable goods such as livestock products require special treatment when shipping them. If you have a problem deciding whether your goods needs to be treated carefully or not, consult with our forwarding specialist.

How fast do you need your cargo to arrive?

Time is of a crucial matter in logistics, and arrangements must be made ahead of schedule. How is the timeline situation on your shipment? Does your buyer have time to wait for their bulk purchase? If so, sea freight would be a good option as it is the most economical way to ship cargo, although it requires a bit more time to arrive.

If time is rather limited and your cargo is not oversized, air freight would be better as it offers a quick and reliable departure and arrival date.
