LCL (LESS THAN CONTAINER LOAD)
When sending part loads we work with a variety of co-loaders that help us reach all parts of the East and Central Africa at a competitive price. It also provides us with a variety of sailing schedules that will suit your requirement meaning your goods will depart and arrive when you want it to. With a LCL service, your goods are consolidated with other shipments in a container and sent together. You will only be charged for the space you use rather than paying for a full container.
WHAT TYPE OF GOODS CAN YOU SHIP USING THE EXPRESS AIR FREIGHT SERVICE?
- General Dry Cargo
- Temperature Controlled
- Hazardous Material/Dangerous Goods
- Heavy weight and over dimensional freight
- Live Animals
- High Value/Fragile Items
- Human Remains/Organs/Tissue Samples
FCL (FULL CONTAINER LOAD)
For the larger shipments, the most economical way would be to send it an FCL (full container load). There are various types of containers that we can provide including reefers, flat racks and open tops as well as the standard 20ft, 40ft and 40ft HQ. If you are unsure on the size you require then we can suggest one that would best suit your needs. Additionally to the shipping, we cover haulage all over East and Central Africa whether you are importing or exporting and will advise the best port to help reduce your costs.
Rates may change time to time, but we charge an a minimum of €5 per KG up to €2o per Consignment.
Volume weight also called dimensional weight is used when the size of the parcel is higher than the dead weight. Sometimes you may be charged per volume of your parcel because of the space the package occupies as it may cost more the actual weight of the package. Actual weight and volume weight are compared, then you will be charged according to whichever is greater.
Volume weight is calculated as follows: Height X Length X Width/ 6000
For UK shipments takes approximately 7 Days after we receive the cargo in UK office. For other countries depends on how much cargo we have at the time.
Depending on a country a cargo is coming from, a minimum weight can be below 1KG up to 300KGs.
