Air Freight

Air freight appeals to many, as you get your possessions more quickly. However, the costs can sometimes be prohibitively expensive. Most people opt to take an "essentials" shipment of their personal belongings via airfreight. This generally allows a quick arrival for the basic items required to commence life in the new country.

At Links, we offer full door-to-door air freight services. We have very good rates due to the volume we send to major destinations.

Whilst as a general rule air freight is more expensive than sea freight, there are situations where even entire households may prove to be more economical to be sent by air. We can advise you of the options available to you depending on your needs and budget.

Sea Freight

The vast majority of household goods and personal effects moved internationally are sent by sea aboard modern containerised vessels. Generally this is the most economical way of forwarding goods. However, there are differing service levels available in this category. In moving goods internationally, like most things, there are usually several options available depending on the level of service provided, the length of time taken for the journey and the reliability and frequency of the ocean carrier.
With this in mind we are able to offer three different shipping methods to get your possessions to your new destination, depending on your volume and budget. The three methods that we use for sea shipments are:

Sea freight shipping methods

  • Consolidated / groupage shipment

  • For this method of shipment, we group clients’ shipments together to fill a container before loading the container onto a vessel. We build a bulk head between each client’s shipment in the container, to ensure they are separated during transit. On arrival at the destination, the container is unloaded and each client’s shipment separated for delivery. Generally this is the most economical way of sending your shipment, as the ocean freight for the whole container is shared and you pay only the portion related to the volume of goods you ship.

  • Less than a container load (LCL)

  • This is when we build a plywood crate (known as a “liftvan”) around your goods after packing. The liftvan is then loaded, as is, into a container bound for your new destination country. We would use this method for small volume shipments to destinations that have low traffic and where we cannot arrange a consolidated container for shipment.

  • Full container load – 20’, 40’, 40’ HC, 45’ (FCL)

  • There are four different types of containers and we will choose the one that best suits your moving requirements. Once we have loaded the container at your residence or as close to your residence as possible, we will seal the container and have it trucked to port for shipping.

    Links Moving participates in some of the largest global freight contracts enabling us to give you competitive prices without affecting our quality.

    Sea transport is most appropriate for large consignments that are non-urgent. Transit times on the water vary depending on the final destination. You can expect shipments from Asia to take up to 5 -7 weeks for Europe, Australasia 3-4 weeks, and the US West Coast and 6-7 weeks for North Atlantic.

Storage

At Links Moving, we have invested heavily in our own warehouse space and storage service facilities designed for the safe storage and handling of our clients household goods and personal effects. With over 170,000 square feet of warehousing space across Greater China and Singapore, we need to ensure that we have all the right controls in place, to give you peace of mind that your goods are in safe hands with us.
