International Shipping by sea or air.

With Express Freight Forwarders Ltd you can choose to send your belongings by sea or air, and – in the case of some European destinations – by road. Under some circumstances it is more cost-effective to use air freight, even for large quantities. Sea freight and road freight charges are determined by volume (the space taken up by the Goods you are shipping), while air freight rates are based on size or weight – whichever is the greater.

Air freight shipping personal Items.

Vehicle Shipping from UK.

We specialise in shipping motor vehicles from the UK. A selection of different car shipping options is available – cars can be shipped in ‘sole use’ or shared containers or on the enclosed car decks of ocean-going RORO Car Carriers. Container shipping encompasses a number of different options.

We offer 20ft or 40ft FCL ‘sole use’ container services, with only your vehicle(s) in the container, to various destinations. This involves your car being secured within a container with straps and wheel chocks to hold it in place. You effectively pay for the sole use of the container, for your vehicle(s) only. A number of options are available – at extra cost – should you have other goods and wish to ship them at the same time. Call us for a free instant Quotation!

We also have frequent shared container services from UK. Your car is loaded into the container, and a crate is custom-built around it to protect your vehicle in transit. You pay only for the space taken up within the container by your timber-framed vehicle. We then load the rest of the container with other goods (baggage, personal and household effects, and furniture). Your vehicle is fully enclosed in transit by a 4 inch (10 cm) timber frame.

RORO International Car Shipping.

Selected port destinations are also served by roll-on, roll-off (RORO) car carrier services. Such vessels are purpose-built car carriers, used by manufacturers to deliver brand new vehicles around the world. Cars are protected from the elements in enclosed car decks and are secured by straps and chocks.

Our roll-on/roll-off experience allows us to handle any type of wheeled or break bulk cargo to anywhere in World. Service frequency is usually once or twice a month, and the transit time is shorter than for container vessels, but there can be useful cost savings on some routes over container shipment.
