The right route for domestic and international freight shipping depends on your timeline and cost concerns. If you’re in a hurry to get your product on sale before the holiday shopping season, you might spring for faster shipping
For faster lead times, air freight is ideal. If you’re manufacturing in China, for example, you can get your goods from the factory to your warehouse in around seven days. And while there are only so many sea ports in the U.S., there is most likely an airport much closer to your ultimate destination.
If you’re producing overseas, ocean freight is much more cost effective than air. However, it might take a month for your product to reach its destination. If you plan ahead and allow for this time, you’re better off sending your products on a cruise.
No matter how you move your product, there are ways to optimize their route and reduce costs. A freight forwarder will use a mix of trucks, ships, trains, or planes from a range of carriers. They aren’t necessarily getting you the most cost effective and fastest. We ensure your logistics are as lean and swift as can be.
