By Sea or By Air?
When relocating overseas, there are two methods through which you can ship your goods—by air or by sea. In order to figure out which shipping method is best for you and your family, you must first calculate the volume of goods you wish to ship. Our overseas shipping rates are calculated by the total number of cubic feet or kilograms.
If you are relocating a large shipment, we suggests you ship by ocean as it is more cost-effective. However, if you are sending a small shipment that falls below the minimum ocean shipment volume, it may be worth shipping by air.

Once a client has completed loading his/her container, we will transport the container to the port of departure and see the shipment through from there.
