Air Freight

Fast, Flexible Global Air Freight Service

Your customers are waiting for your products. How can you get them where they need to be on time and on budget?

Air Freight services are the perfect solution when you need to deliver high-value or time-sensitive shipments. Operating from airport-to-airport, they offer a higher level of control and flexibility than many international courier services. You can also enjoy a greater choice of departure days, routings and pricing options.

At Precision Forwarding, we can precisely tailor our services to meet the unique demands of your commercial customers, big and small, from around the world. Whatever your needs, from delivering small volumes to last minute requests, we ensure that your international cargo arrives safe, sound and on-time.

Our International Links

Our international representatives are known to us personally. So we can offer you an efficiently organised international air freight forwarding service that’s tailored to your requirements at a competitive rate.

Whether you need import services or export services, airport-to-airport or door-to-door, our knowledgeable staff can provide you with a personalised service, offering air freight logistics solutions to match your specific needs.

Ocean Freight

Cost Effective, Economical and Green

Ocean freight services are a more economical and greener way to ship large or bulky items internationally. While air freight is favoured for time-sensitive shipments, ocean freight is still the first choice for many businesses and individuals looking for a cost-effective solution.

If you need to ship a significant volume of goods, and if you are happy for longer transit times to be offset by reduced cost, ocean freight could be the perfect option to suit your needs.

Never too Small to Sail

Small businesses and individual customers often don’t consider sea freight as a viable option, as it tends to be associated with larger companies exporting high volumes of commercial cargo. But sea freight services can be ideal for smaller businesses and for the transportation of personal effects, where time is not limited and budgets are tight.

The majority of sea cargo is transported in either TEU (twenty foot equivalent unit) or FEU (forty foot equivalent unit) containers.

With Precision Forwarding, you have the option to book either an FCL (full container load) at one of those sizes, or an LCL (part container load) if you don’t have enough cargo to fill a whole container at either of those sizes.

Put our Expertise and Experience to Work for Your Ocean Freight

Ocean freight can be complicated, and the maze of daunting industry terminology can deter the uninitiated. It can also be difficult to get your head around what documentation is required.

At Precision Forwarding, we can deal with all of this for you. We’ll help you with the documentation, including shipping labels, packing list, customs invoices and bill of lading. Our dedicated, friendly freight team will assist every step of the way and are on hand for any queries, making your importing and exporting plain sailing.

The Value of Independence

Many providers tie themselves to specific ocean carriers. So the solution they offer you isn’t always based on what’s best for you, but rather on their own contracts with shipping lines.

As an independent freight forwarder, Precision Forwarding work solely for you. This means we can leverage our network and valued relationships to provide you with flexible ocean freight options that suit you.

Predicting the Unpredictable

Even the best laid plans can go awry when a shipment has to cross oceans, continents and pass through different cultures.

There are all kinds of challenges in moving goods around the world. There are no modes of transport that are not susceptible to unexpected events, volcanic ash, strikes, civil unrest, terrorist attacks, even just heavy traffic on the highways.

Ocean freight transit times can be several weeks and schedules can change, due to unforeseen circumstances like severe weather & mechanical breakdowns, trans shipment delays and offloading. Airfreight shipments can be held up for days if some small details are overlooked.

At Precision we pay attention to all the particulars, door to door, to anticipate and avoid problems in advance of shipment. By regularly monitoring your individual shipments can we keep you informed of any critical changes, so you can relax in the knowledge that we have it in hand.

With our expertise in managing your international freight movements, you can remain confident of fulfilling your customer service promises.

Landed Costing Reports

Having the landed cost reported to you can boost your bottom line. It is essential in global trade and you can put it to use to increase your profits.

A landed cost is the total price of a product once it has arrived at your buyer’s door. The landed cost includes the original price of the product, all transportation fees (both inland and air/ocean freight), customs, duties, taxes, insurance, currency conversion, crating, handling and payment fees.

How We calculate a Landed Price

We can prepare for you a spreadsheet, showing all the familiar components of an ordinary domestic invoice. This is a description of the product, an itemised listing of charges and sales terms including, selling price, inland transport, air/ocean transport, duty, currency adjustment factor (CAF) and documentation, all to give you a TOTAL LANDED PRICE.

When it comes to global trade, controlling costs, ensuring timely deliveries and getting paid are serious issues that every international business executive must face. Landed cost is a significant component of all of these issues. That’s why our ability to help you in establishing a landed cost model for overseas buyers is not just important, it is essential.
