Combined air and sea transports

Too slow by ocean freight ? Too expensive by airfreight ? The alternative is to combine both. Especially on the route between Asia and Europe this combination is well-tried. The first part of the transport is arranged by ocean freight, the second by airfreight. The advantage of this combination is not only a 50 % saving of the transit time but also of the freight charges (compared with 100 % airfreight). An ocean freight shipment from Hong Kong to Hamburg takes approx. 4 - 5 weeks. In combination with airfreight the transit time can be reduced to approx. 2 weeks.

Freight advice / cost analysis

Maybe you or your company call yourself a newcomer in airfreight or ocean freight business? Or maybe you would like to know which packing material would be best for your cargo ? Especially in the airfreight business every kilogram counts. Light, compact and solid packaging is a must to keep the freight charges on a low level. Of course it is also possible to develop special packaging for your cargo which can be reused on each transport. Many customers are very surprised how much costs can be saved by using different packing material. Please don´t hesitate to contact us for details.
