The best transport method for your goods depends on several factors; how urgently you need the items, your budget, and the size of your shipment. Additionally, other factors, such as peak and off-peak seasons, also come into play. Generally, if your goods are around 100kg, it’s best to ship your goods as Less than Container Load (LCL), where your shipment shares a container with other boxes and pallets. LCL takes a few days longer than FCL as your goods will need to be consolidated at the origin port and de-consolidated at the destination port. If your goods are around 200kgs, it’s best to ship FCL even though your cargo doesn’t fill the whole container. You’ll pay a flat rate which will be cheaper than paying for space by the cubic meter in LCL.
If your items are light and need to arrive in the UK urgently, air and express are your best options. Air is more expensive than ocean freight, and you will pay for both the volume and weight. If you have a small shipment and need it delivered as fast as possible, express is your best option. you might consider express.
