Ship the Important Stuff
CONSIDER YOUR FREIGHT OPTIONS
Different modes of international shipping come with different costs and timelines. As a rule of thumb, the slower the mode of transport, the less it will cost. Air freight is the fastest way to get your belongings moved internationally, but is also the most expensive way to do it. Ocean freight is much more cost effective and the most widely used. Even with Ocean Freight, there are multiple options, namely FCL (Full Container Load), LCL (Less than Container Load), and also Groupage shipping – which is by the most economical method of International Moving.
