Shipping To Germany: Sea Freight Or Air Freight?

When you export goods to Germany to Australia, your items will travel around 13,500 km – that’s roughly a third of the world’s circumference. The main mode of transport will be either boat or plane. TSL will assess your cargo and work with you to decide which mode of transport is best suited to your consignment. This decision may depend on:

  1. Your budget – air freight is generally more costly to arrange than sea freight
  2. Your timeframe – sea freight takes at least five times longer than air travel
  3. Your buyer’s preference – your European contact may prefer you to use one transportation method over the other
  4. Type of goods – bulky, heavy and oversize items are better suited to sea freight. Smaller, more compact packages can be sent more easily by air

Our teams will research the options and talk through the various factors with you. Together we’ll work out the most logical and cost-effective method of shipping to Germany – sea freight or air freight.
