Why use air freight imports from Vietnam to Australia?
Shipping goods on an airplane is, of course, the quickest way of transporting them the 5,200 or so kilometres between Australia and Vietnam. It is ideal if your consignment is not too heavy or bulky. With TSL, air freight imports from Vietnam to Australia usually take between one and six days. The total time taken will depend on a number of factors, such as where your pick-up and delivery points are, and how much inland transportation is required in each country. Please note, this mode of transportation is more expensive than sending goods via the ocean.
Why Trade With Vietnam?
There are several reasons why you may choose to do business with Vietnam as an Australian company.
