There are two types of freight for international shipping—air freight and ocean freight.
Air freight is the quickest method, usually reserved for essential items such as clothing and small shipments that are needed promptly when you arrive at your destination. International Sea & Air Shipping’s professional international moving specialists will help you schedule and expedite your air shipment and prepare all carrier documentation required to expedite your goods.
Ocean freight is a more economical method with a longer transit time. There are three methods of ocean freight shipping:
· Lift vans (for small amounts of household goods)
· Exclusive containers (Sealed steel containers for larger shipments)
· Shared containers (an economical option for shipments too small to fill an entire container-- your belongings will be consolidated with other shipments)
