Transit modes

Use Sea Freight to Ship Unaccompanied Baggage

Shipping excess baggage is the most cost effective way to send extra luggage overseas from the United Kingdom, however it is the slowest of the freight methods and so plenty of time for delivery must be allowed. Unaccompanied luggage shipping enables you to send goods to many worldwide destinations with ease and for a reasonable fee.


Transport Extra Luggage Quickly with Air Freight

If you are seeking the fastest and most convenient method for sending bags from the UK, air freight is the best option for you. Although the cost is greater than sea or road freight, your baggage will be with you sooner. We offer cost effective excess luggage fees for our air freight service. There are a number of options for your goods upon their arrival in your chosen destination, each varying in cost and delivery times.
