- Door to Port – an option often used by businesses who have the equipment (trucks) available to pick up their goods at the port and the staff who are experienced in moving the goods through Australian customs.
- Port to Port – Another option used by large commercial entities that ship regularly between a specific point of origin in Thailand to their business in Australia.
- LCL vs. FCL – Depending on the amount of cargo your shipment involves, the size of the container and whether you have enough cargo to justify the cost of renting a full container, we will advise you on whether to rent an entire container (FCL) or share a container (LCL) with other people who are shipping to the same destination.
- Air vs. Ocean – When comparing ocean freight to air freight, speed of transport and cost are the main considerations. Air freight is significantly more expensive than ocean freight but the transit time can be measured in days vs. the weeks that it takes for ocean based cargo.
