If you are considering shipping from Thailand to Taiwan, Eagle Air & Sea offers multiple services to get your goods from one country to the other. Based in Thailand, we offer our customers sea and air shipping options for goods that are going into Taiwan. We offer door to door services that include all applicable licenses, customs clearance and documentation.
At Eagles Air & Sea we have well developed business relationships with freight forwarders in Taiwan that will ensure your shipment is handled efficiently, economically and safely as it arrives at the airport or port in Taiwan. Issues with customs, duties, and delivery will be handled professionally as your goods are treated with the utmost of respect and care.
Option #1 – Ocean Freight
When considering the mode of shipping that will be best for your particular project, ocean freight is probably going to be the best option. Shipping times between these two countries are relatively quick and pricing is typically quick. As Taiwan is such a small country that has all of its border exposed to the sea, there are numerous ports to choose from, including Hualien, Kaohsiung, Keelung, Taichung and Mailiao Harbor. All ports are well developed to handle both FCL and LCL containers. Most shipments, depending on the ports of call, will be able to get your goods delivered within one week.
Option #2 – Air Freight
In some circumstances air freight might be your best option. There are no less than 4 airports In Taiwan that can be leveraged for speedy pickup and delivery. While express service is available that will move your goods in one day, this option can get very expensive. Normal air freight delivery will take 2 to 3 days.
In either case, air or ocean, we offer freight consolidation options that can significantly reduce the cost of moving goods between these two countries.
Thailand – Taiwan Business Relationship
While Taiwan is not a member of ASEAN, it is important to note that Taiwan’s investment in the economies of ASEAN members such as Thailand, The Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore has approached almost 3 billion in USD each year. While that rate of investment has dipped in 2020, we would expect this strong trade relationship to resume between Taiwan and Thailand to continue in 2021 and beyond.
