Evaluating international shipping
Shipping can be fulfilled in three different ways: by air, by sea and by land. Depending on your destination and the delivery requirements, you can opt for one of these methods.

Each option has its own benefits, so don't be concerned if you have to move overseas and aren't sure about either air or sea transport. International shipping companies listed here have enough offices abroad and partners all around the globe to pick up your load at the port and to deliver it to the final destination by land transport.

International shipping by sea
Moving by sea is one of the most popular ways of shipping when it comes to moving overseas. This type is most appealing for people who are price conscious and value the safety of the delivery. Transporting goods by sea has the following advantages:

  • cheaper for volumetric and heavy load
  • absence of restrictions on the volume and weight of goods
  • can save time if departure and destinations points are close to sea port

Some of the drawbacks of shipping by sea include the dependence of the departure timetable and the weather conditions. Additionally, it requires extra transport for the transfer of goods from the port to its specific destination.

International shipping by land
When considering options for moving or transporting goods by land, there are commonly two methods: truck or train. In regards to truck shipping, the most significant advantage of this is the flexibility of routes. This means that you can adjust the route as/when it may be needed.

It saves you time and money when shipping to nearby destinations. Shipping via trucks often has a quicker loading time and has the advantage of allowing small volume delivery loads in comparison with some other means of transport.

When considering shipments by train, the main advantages include:

  • high maximum load capacity
  • less dependence on weather conditions
  • low cost
  • patency in remote regions and far distances

The main disadvantage of this kind of transport is that is not possible to deliver a load "door to door" and therefore will require extra transport options for reaching its final destination.

International shipping by air
This type of shipping offers a number of valuable advantages for international moving. It is ideal for long distance, and as it is the quickest method it also saves you time for when moving over a long distance. Further, air transport offers a very safe and secure manner of delivery.

The cargo compartment of the goods is fixed in such a way so as not to move during the flight. One of the main drawbacks of shipping by air includes the important fact that it is often the highest priced option than other means of transport. It is also reliant upon weather conditions, time schedules and the necessity of extra transport to deliver the goods to door.
