SEA-AIR - ship then fly
When sea is too slow and air is too expensive, try a combination of the two
SEA-AIR - an ideal combination of speed and cost
The long sea voyage from Asia to Europe or America gives you the lowest cost transport - but it doesn't give you speed. So if air freight all the way is out of your budget range, think about our combined service - DSV SEA-AIR.
For example, we'll ship your cargo from Shanghai to Dubai by container ship where we transfer it to an aircraft for you within hours of arrival. From there it's in Europe or North America within a day or two instead of up to two weeks.
Not all goods are suitable for shipping in this way, and you'll need to pay attention to the regulations for dangerous goods by both air and sea. And clearly, a whole shipping container can't be loaded onto an aircraft without unloading it and repacking. Our expert freight forwarders are ready to advise you about all the options.
