There are many factors to consider when you are looking at logistics for your business. We have put together the below infographic with our four top considerations to help you understand the differences between Sea Freight and Air Freight and how to choose the right path for your business.
Sea Freight Versus Air Freight
Typically it is cheaper to ship cargo via sea, especially with larger shipments.
Due to capacity and weight restrictions on planes, air freight is usually more expensive.
Sea shipments are best planned in advance to ensure timescales and deadlines are met.
Air freight is a far quicker method of shipping cargo and the best way to ship if there are tight deadlines.
Ships usually follow a weekly schedule, so missing the cutoff for shipment can cause long delays.
Airlines tend to keep on top of their schedules and if not, there are so many flights a day that any delays don’t cause serious problems.
Ocean transport produces much lower emissions and has a better carbon footprint.
CO2 emissions are much higher using air freight to transport cargo.
