Freight Cost from Thailand to Brazil
For what will be the price of transporting your goods, this will depend on the size and weight of your goods. The method of transport by boat or by air will also affect the price. Small shipments do not always fill an entire pallet, this will make its transport less expensive, especially for the use of a service for door. When transporting in larger quantities shipping will be the best compromise despite a much longer transit time than by air, for example by using a complete container for you.
To get the most accurate quote possible when transporting goods to Brazil, we need the exact dimensions of your goods. If the goods are on pallets this must be able to stand perfectly.
If you do not provide us with the exact dimensions of your goods we will have a precise estimate of the price only when we will pay the invoices once the exact dimensions are known.
