How are we able to give you the Cheapest Air Freight?
When companies take on the task of handling their own shipments by contacting a carrier directly, they may risk having to spend even more during the process.
Having a freight forwarder to do the job would mean that companies can tap on their expertise and knowledge to handle shipments. This guarantees an efficient and cost-effective shipping process. It is also important to only trust a freight forwarding company that has had vast experience in the industry.
With the help of a freight forwarder, companies may also save the trouble and focus on their core business operations which would be a more cost-effective move.
In some cases, there may be cheaper sea freight rates due to the high demand for containers in a certain country. For example, a shipment to China from the ports of the United States (US) is cheaper than a shipment to the US from China. This is because the demand for containers in China is high, hence all containers are required to return to China in order for cargoes to be shipped from there. Therefore, companies may monitor the supply and demand trends of containers to predict when there may be cheaper sea freight rates.
LCL ocean services refer to the situation where there is insufficient cargo to fill the whole container.
Unlike airlines, sea freight rates are calculated based on the volume of the cargo instead of its weight. Volume is defined as the amount of space of which is occupied by the cargo within the container. This would mean that when cargo is heavy but occupies less space, it would be cheaper when transported through sea freight.
With more freight forwarder company acknowledging LCL, affordable rates have been offered and cargo can be efficiently organised in a container with other shippers’ cargoes. This then ensures not only an affordable alternative for heavy but non-bulky goods but also efficiency in the shipment process.
