In need of transporting cargo to Hong Kong? Then air freight is the quickest and might we add most efficient way of doing so. How might we know that? Well, here at Barrington Freight, one of the UK’s leading freight forwarders, we’ve gained ourselves a great deal of experience within the freight forwarding industry; specifically air freight. We know only too well that finding a reputable company to carry out such an important task can be daunting. Let’s face it, one click of Google and you’ll find your search engine reveals that we aren’t short of air freight companies. Finding a highly skilled, knowledgeable and professional company to carry out the service from start to finish however, is a totally different story. Thankfully, here at Barrington Freight, we just so happen to possess all such qualities and as such have been carrying out a great deal of air freight services over a number of years. More specifically, air freight to Hong Kong.
Having dealt with so many customers over the years, we’ve learnt that not only are people looking for international freight forwarding, but they’re looking for the most affordable and most beneficial to them. We also understand that there’s a certain assumption that comes with air freight, and that’s that it happens to be expensive. While air freight may indeed initially seem more costly, its steep reduction in the insurance costs and travel time more than make up for it. Those however, aren’t the only benefits of air freight. Aside from being the quickest way to send goods internationally, and being one of the most vital parts of what we call, worldwide logistics, it also happens to be a hugely versatile method of freight forwarding. From time variations (express air freight to Hong Kong for instance along with regular air freight) to sizing of your shipment (packages may vary from very small to shipping pallets), air freight can quite literally cater to your individual need.
As a specialist freight forwarding company, we operate from most UK and international airports. This means that almost any package can be delivered to almost any destination in the world. More importantly, it means that we can offer air freight services to Hong Kong with ease. As with all air freight, a certain amount of documentation will need to be filled out but that’s an area we’re only too happy to help with. This is especially so when transporting perishable items which has a certain amount of legislative requirements.
While we will always do our best to make things easy for you, it’s always a good idea to familiarise yourself with some of the more mandatory documentation that’s required of you when sending cargo via air freight to Hong Kong. The documentation you’ll need to take a look at include certificates of origin, export cargo shipping instructions or ECSI as it’s known. You may also need to look at single administrative documents (SAD), standard shipping notes (SSN) and even air waybills (AWB) but before you find yourself in a pile of confusion, we’ll let you know exactly what you need, when you’ll need it and if need be, help you complete it too. By having such an understanding of the necessary paperwork, we can make your life easier by ensuring you comply with all legislative and/or legal issues that could arise when using international air freight services.
One of the reasons we’re picked time and again for air freight services is, aside from our professionalism and affordable prices of course – our knowledge of Hong Kong. For instance, did you know, Hong Kong International Airport is the only civil airport operating in Hong Kong at the moment?Did you know it also goes by another name, Chek Lap Kok International Airport (CLK) due to it being based on the artificial island of Chek Lap Kok which lies north of Lautau Island? It’s also the forth busiest international passenger airport in the entire world and has the busiest cargo facilities too. Add to that the fact that there are 90 different airlines operating from CLK and a whopping 750 aircraft moving around on a daily basis and it’s easy to understand just how important this airport is. Recent statistics have even linked it with 150 destinations worldwide.
With this in mind, we urge you to consider our air freight services for your next cargo shipment to Hong Kong. With a much shorter time in transit, you can save a great deal of money on transportation insurance and you’ll also be saving yourself a huge amount of time. There’s no other form of freight forwarding – in the world – that can offer next day delivery to Hong Kong. Thanks to regular flights from multiple airports in the UK to Hong Kong, you’ll never need to wait too long for the next available slot. This makes our air freight services to Hong Kong perfect for those with perishables.
