INTERNATIONAL AIRFREIGHT SERVICES

Whether you’re an overseas student taking back belongings to your country or your time restrictions mean that you need your consignment to be at its destination as quickly as possible then let our comprehensive Airfreight department take control of all your unaccompanied baggage.

Choose between Airfreight and Seafreight

For smaller consignments it is normally recommended to use our Airfreight service. Airfreight is particulary recommended for landlocked countries such as Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana & Malawi. On consignments over 20kgs we would recommend our door to airport service while consignments under 20kgs will be more economical to send on our Door to Door Service.
