There are two through shipping choices for air freight and sea freight when it comes to getting your goods across the world. But if you stick to one more than the other almost completely, have you ever seriously wondered if you made the right choice?
At first, it may not seem that much of a difference, particularly next to more pressing concerns such as production quotas, item recalls, and customer feedback. Their only significant differences are their transportation speed and mode, right?
But this is one aspect of logistics that you're going to want to think seriously about. Your chosen freight forwarding approach will make the difference between saving and overspending valuable business capital. Were you aware, for example, that maritime freight and air freight are not priced the same way? Or that reschedules impact one of these freight forwarding options less than the other? Such factors make the choice of air freight over sea freight and vice versa even more significant.
