Frequent Asked Questions
How do I know if the costs I am paying for freight are fair?
The best way to ensure that you are getting a fair deal is to shop and compare. Just like buying a car or other items, it pays to get more than one quote. Using freight calculators on freight forwarder’s website is a quick and easy way to get several quotes in a hurry. Be sure your quotes are itemized and broken down so you can see what each type of service is contributing to the total cost.
Why is air freight so expensive ?
The short answer is supply and demand. In today’s environment with reduced passenger flights, there is less available capacity for air based cargo. Medical equipment associated with Covid 19 is getting priority for air shipments as well. It is unlikely this cost dynamic is going to change anytime soon as there has been an ongoing significant restructuring of the air cargo marketplace.
Why Can’t I do my Own Shipping and Avoid Using a Freight Forwarder?
There is no specific requirement that an individual or company use a freight forwarder. However, most companies believe that managing all of the documentation, communication and regulations associated with international shipping is something that is best left to the people who do it exclusively. Think of a freight forwarder as your personal travel agent for cargo.
What is the safest mode of shipping?
For international shipments, ocean freight using an FCL or full container load, is the safest (and cheapest) mode of transport. On an FCL, your goods are the only cargo in the container, which means that the container won’t be opened from the time it leaves your port until it arrives at its destination. Proper packaging and a commensurate amount of insurance are also good practices when shipping between different countries.
How to keep costs of air freight under control?
If your business model depends on air freight as a delivery method, there are a few ways to manage the costs. First, planning is key to cost management when dealing with any types of freight costs. The more visibility and long term commitment you can provide to your freight vendor, the lower will be your costs. Secondly, consolidate as much as possible as the rates for air freight generally are lower for larger shipments.
