One of the many decisions to be made when planning your import and export shipments is to select the most appropriate method of transport.

The table below shows size guidelines by method of transport:

Please note that the above table is a guideline. The following considerations will also have a bearing  on the breakpoints above


  • The nature of the goods

  • How they are packed

  • Country of export

  • Country of import

  • Pick-up and delivery locations within these countries

  • Speed of transit required


All these factors need to be taken into account to make an informed decision that is best for your business needs. By providing your freight forwarder with details of your shipment and the date it needs to arrive at its destination, they will be able to offer you informed, efficient and cost effective options, no matter how big or small your shipment.
