Ease the complicated process of shipping goods from the US to the Philippines with M&P International Freights. The Philippines is home to over a hundred ports including some major ones like the Port of South Harbor in Manila and the Manila International Container Terminal. We are a one-stop provider offering a full range of services for all your freighting needs.
1. What are the ways to ship from US to Philippines?
Air freight is the transfer of goods by the way of an air carrier. As a freight forwarder, we do not move the cargo ourselves; instead, we make sure that the proper logistics are set up for the goods to be moved from US to Philippines. This is typically the fastest mode of transport but also the most expensive.
How It Works
Transportation of cargo
Cargo is sent to the airport within a specified time frame before the contracted aircraft departs.
Cargo receivers at the destination will receive a pre-alert message before the aircraft lands to facilitate an efficient handover.
Delivery to specific address
Forwarders then take over the cargo to send them to their respective destinations.
Duration: approximately 7 days for door-to-door air freight.
Advantages of Air Freight
Air freight allows you to get your goods to its destination in the shortest amount of time.
The goods being shipped can be insured with cargo insurance to reduce any financial risks.
Sea freight is the transfer of goods by way of sea vessels from one seaport or terminal to another. Shipping and warehousing distribution services will be arranged to ensure the goods arrive at the intended destination.
How It Works
Goods from the origin factory would be packed into containers.
Submission of relevant documents
Documents to be submitted to the exporting and importing countries’ custom officials.
Loading of cargo
The cargo would be then loaded onto a ship and set off towards its destination country.
A report on the nature of the goodsintransit would be submitted to the destination’s authorities a few days before the container reaches the destination port.
Container will be unloaded at the destination port upon getting clearance.
At customs, random custom checks will be conducted by custom officials if deemed necessary.
Delivery to specific address
Once cleared, the containers will then be transported to their respective locations.
Duration: approximately 25-35 days for door-to-door shipping.
Advantages of Sea Freight
More affordable than air freight
Vessels can carry much more cargo as compared to cargo planes.
Transshipment is the transfer of goods by way of multiple sea vessels through multiple seaports and terminals. In the scenario of a shipment from US to the Philippines, the containers will first travel from US to Singapore. They will then be taken off the vessel in Singapore and transferred to another vessel that is scheduled to head to the Philippines.
Duration: approximately 30-45 days for door-to-door shipping.
2. What is the cheapest way to ship from US to Philippines?
Transshipment is the cheapest way to ship. It is especially useful when sending goods to remote locations and is a cost-effective solution when direct shipment is not necessary or possible.
- Longer time
Transshipment freight rates are lower than direct routes as direct routes are faster.
- More frequent connections
The connections are also more frequent, which means that many shippers work together to get the job done, resulting in lower costs.
However, the exact cost of transshipment depends on a few factors, namely the cargo dimensions and weight and the urgency of the cargo.
