Freight from/to Vietnam by air
You wish to mail your packages as quickly as possible? It's all about air freight for you. The plane is an attractive method for covering significant distances in a short amount of time. However, you must be wary of the price, which is not cheap. In addition, it is one of the most polluting modes of transportation available. As a result, great consideration is required before employing this technique.
There are two choices for air freight in comparison to maritime freight:
- Traditional air freight: You use the space provided by traditional airlines like American Airlines, Qatar Airways, and Air France...
- If your shipment is tiny - typically less than 100 kilograms - we recommend using an express service such as TNT, UPS, DHL, Fedex, etc.
Shipping to and from Vietnam by sea
Do you need to transport a significant amount of products hundreds of thousands of kilometers? It's all about sea freight for you. This mode of transportation, which is ideal for moving a high number of goods at an amazing price, is today the most often employed alternative for and by businesses.
You can send your items by sea in one of two ways:
- LCL (less than container load): you combine your goods with those of a number of other exporters into a single container.
- FCL (Full Container Load): You have the entire container to yourself. From the beginning to the completion of the journey, the container is hermetically sealed.
Freight from/to Vietnam via road
Then there's the road freight. It is a cost-effective alternative for connecting critical places such as
your industrial warehouses or even for door-to-door delivery if the distance is small. This is a specialty of cross-border transportation. We also transport our newly arrived goods from the airport or the port by truck. In short, while some companies prefer to use trucks for long
distances due to their low cost, road freight is an almost indispensable solution that provides tailored and efficient solutions for more or less short distances.
