Frequently Asked Questions:

Whether you ship cargo internationally via sea or air, shipping times can vary depending on route, distance, and congestion. Generally speaking, we’ll be able to calculate transit time once the container is on board and confirmed to have departed the original location. However, there can be delays in international freight services due to poor weather conditions, customs clearance, and traffic congestion.

Here at CRL Express, we offer international freight services via sea and air. Sea freight refers to the shipping of goods between two locations by an ocean carrier. Where air freight refers to the transportation of freight via airplanes.


It is widely accepted that air freight is more expensive than sea freight for international shipments. Generally speaking, you’ll be able to get a higher volume of cargo into a shipping container for a vessel, than air cargo, so you’re likely going to get more bang for your buck with sea freight. It’s important to consider when comparing air vs sea freight that air freight is calculated by the chargeable weights (combination of size and weight), and the charge of containers via sea.


It’s also widely accepted that air freight is undoubtedly faster than sea freight if you’re shipping overseas. Depending on the consignment, international shipping via sea can take about a month, where air cargo can be processed and shipped within a day or two before reaching end destination.


While at CRL Express we strive to provide the most reliable and efficient international freight services, delays can happen. Air freight is less likely to go off schedule, and when it does, it’s rarely a long delay. On the other hand, sea freight has to combat more difficult obstacles like poor weather and congestion, which can cause delays in the schedule.
