When it comes to international shipping, there are several options to choose from, but which one is the cheapest?
There are many options that will end up being much more expensive than you think, such as:
1 - AIR FREIGHT
This option is fast, but can be very expensive. If you go directly to an air freight company, you may have to clear customs yourself or hire a customs broker, which will add significantly to your costs and stress. You should also consider how you're going to get your items to and from the airport, if your company doesn't offer that service.
2 - MARITIME SHIPPING AND CONTAINERS
This means that your belongings are loaded into a large container that is then placed on the cargo ships. Although cheaper than air freight, ocean freight and container transport can be costly. You still need to make sure your items go through customs and possibly hire a customs broker to help you, especially in destinations with complicated customs processes. The biggest problem with ocean freight and container shipping is that items can take a long time to reach their destination. You also need to organize your transportation to and from the ports. Depending on where you live, your belongings may have to make another significant overland journey to get from the port to your front door.
4 - GO DIRECTLY TO A COURIER COMPANY
You can choose to have your items shipped with a courier company such as DHL, UPS, Parcelforce or FedEx. However, if you go directly to these companies, you may pay more, you may not have the specialized 24-hour support that Austrans Logistics offers, and perhaps most importantly, your shipments will generally be handled as commodities rather than personal belongings. ie longer transit time and additional costs.
