Airfreight
Airfreight Service for goods to International Customs Airports Worldwide.
Freight Charges are calculated according to Chargeable Weight, which is dependent upon weight or volume, with chargeable weight being the greater of the two.
Airfreight Volume is calculated using the following formula: 6000:1
Outer dimensions are measured, either of carton/case or crate in centimetres.
Length x Breadth x Height, divided by 6000 = Kilograms (Kgs).
E.g.: 120x80x65cms = 624000/6000 = 104.0Kgs
Actual weight = 100.0Kgs, Volumetric weight = 104.0Kgs.
Chargeable Weight = 104.0Kgs.

Transit Times from Airport to Airport are dependent on Destination, Routing and Airline Service, taking anything from 2 to 5 Days, schedule and season dependant.

Seafreight
Seafreight Groupage Service to International Customs Ports Worldwide.
Slower Service than Airfreight, cost effective for larger shipments.
Charges are calculated according to Chargeable Weight, which is predominantly dependent upon size for Seafreight Groupage consignments.
