Ease the complicated process of shipping goods from the US to the Philippines with M&P International Freights.

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
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.
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
How It Works
Goods from the origin factory would be packed into containers.
Documents to be submitted to the exporting and importing countries’ custom officials.
The cargo would be then loaded onto a ship and set off towards its destination country.
A report on the nature of the cargo 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.
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
Trans-shipment 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?
Trans-shipment 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
Trans-shipment 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 trans-shipment depends on a few factors, namely the cargo dimensions and weight and the urgency of the cargo.
