What can APT LOGISTICS your Indian freight forwarder do for you?

The process of importing or exporting cargo is quite complex. Not only is there the problem of how to ship the goods, there are also many regulations to consider. APT Logistics will look for the best delivery route and seek quotes for each element of the transport, taking into consideration the transit time and price.

 What transport options can APT Logistics India offer?

It is important to pick the right freight forwarder for the job as some specialize in one mode of transport while others have specific expertise in importing and exporting from certain countries. Most general freight forwarders will be able to offer the following options.

Air Freight: It is most recommended when cargo is light weight and needs to reach destination urgently.

Road Haulage: This is generally done once goods reach desired port / airport or transportation from shipper warehouse to nearest airport / seaport.

Sea Freight: This is most common method of transporting goods as it is cheaper compared to other modes of transport.

There are two options when transporting goods in a Container:

1: Transportation of goods by booking a full 20 feet / 40 feet container also known as FCL container Load.

2: Transportation of cargo in a consolidated container when goods are small in volume. The cargo is loaded with other shipments and this is called as LCL (Less than container load) shipment.
