Why Choose Domestic Air Freight For Shipping Personal Goods?
We recommend shipping your goods domestically via air because:
- It is a fast, quality and efficient manner for transporting goods
- The goods are generally in superior condition upon arrival
- It enables greater inventory control for just-in-time manufacturing and stocking
- Air freight translates into much lower shipping costs for certain commodities
How Much Does It Cost?
The overall charges of domestic air freight delivery depend on the following variables:
- Locations involved – Costs vary depending on the place of origin and destination of the cargo to be shipped
- Delivery Time – The urgency of your order or delivery deadlines.
- Size of individual packages – (boxes, pallets or crates)
- Type of materials – Extra charges apply to fragile, perishable or hazardous materials that require special handling.
- Specific choice of Airline – Different rates are applicable as per your choice.
- The Gross weight – For the gross weight you are charged the higher value of the actual weight (from scale) Vs the volume weight of your package. Use the following formula to calculate the volume weight: Length x Width x Height (in inches) divided by 366 (in Kg)
*Clients are always billed on the final chargeable weight*
- Subject to availability, your goods can be loaded into airline containers.
- Most airlines can carry a piece of up to 1587 Kg (3500 lbs) with the dimension for each side not exceeding 62″ (Height) x 88″ (Weight) x 102″ (Length)
Although your choice of service will depend on the requirements, budget and deadline of your delivery, we particularly recommend domestic air freight for time sensitive goods. This service is however quite expensive as opposed to its alternatives.

Shipping Instructions (if Applicable):
When you are packing your goods or preparing a list of contents, here are a few things you should keep in mind:
- Make sure to properly pack and mark your name, number and destination address on each box/carton before handing your cargo over to us.
- For identification purposes, each box/carton must be labeled with the BOOKING NUMBER issued at the time of the booking.
- You must send us a packing list stating the contents of each carton, and if you are buying insurance, a breakdown of the value of each of the carton’s contents must also be submitted. However, we do not require extensive details; you can mention entire goods categories such as Books or Tools, but make sure to mention their values separately despite consolidated packing.
- We allow the shipping of suitcases but it is preferred that you put them in boxes or cartons. (Note: make sure to remove all fragile goods from your suitcase).

Upon the arrival of your shipment at the destination, our agent or steamship line agent will inform you and guide you to their office where you may proceed to claim your shipment. Some terminal charges and agent-handling fee might be payable.
Custom clearance and transportation from your door to the port is your responsibility. Furthermore, any duties or taxes payable at the destination in the clearance process shall be paid as per the applicable tariff of the importing country.
