When it comes to International shipping, which is the cheaper mode of transport? Air freight or Ocean freight?

Answers 1

Budgeting your freight is probably one of the most important factors to consider whether you are an individual moving to a new country or you are into business. To make a decision you have to be aware about how carriers charge for International shipping. Airlines bill you by chargeable weight which is calculated by weight and size of shipment whereas sea carriers charge per container rates. Hence, for larger and heavier shipments, sea is a cheaper option whereas, for smaller shipments, air would be less expensive.
