FAQ | Unexpected expenses during a move
How long will the products take to arrive at their ultimate destination?
It all depends on the kind of cargo you choose! Your items will take roughly 40 days to convey from Asia to Europe by sea freight, for example. It will take less than a week for air freight to arrive at its ultimate destination. Finally, rail freight will transport products from point A to point B in 20 to 25 days.
What is the most efficient mode of transport?
It all depends on what you're hauling, one again! If your package is more than 2m3, sea freight will be the most cost-effective option. We recommend that you utilize air freight for products that are less than this volume. If you need to move products in a somewhat high volume yet need them to arrive faster than through sea freight, rail freight will be the best option.
What will be the most cost-effective mode of transport?
Obviously, sea freight will be the most cost-effective mode of transit. The most costly mode of transport is air freight, but it is also the quickest! Rail freight serves as a middleman once again, with costs falling between between sea freight and air freight.
