What is the difference between freight and parcel shipping?

The overall weight of your shipment is what distinguishes freight from the parcel. Any shipment weighing more than 200 kg is considered to be freight according to our team. Anything less is recommended to be shipped via a regular express courier, such as UPS or FedEx.

How should I decide on the shipping method for my shipment?

If your consignment weighs more than 200 kg, you must decide whether to ship your freight through FCL (full container load), LCL (less than container load), or air.

What is FCL (Full Container Load) shipping?

FCL shipping involves dedicating an entire container for your shipment. This is a suitable choice for larger shipments that can fill an entire container.

What is LCL (Less Than Container Load) shipping?

LCL shipping is ideal for shipments that do not require an entire container. Multiple smaller shipments from different clients are combined into one container to optimize space and cost.

When should I consider air freight?

Air freight is a faster but more expensive option. It's recommended for time-sensitive shipments or when other shipping methods are not feasible due to the urgency of delivery.
