    HI,

    I have recently taken the first step and started ordering products from China.

    Whilst there I used Airfreight Company but they ended up being quite expensive.

    Can anyone suggest a good quality but cheaper airfreight company?

    I am shipping wedding dresses and accessories.

    Many Thanks

    Sian

    what volume/weight are you shipping.

    Airfreight only becomes worthwhile, over couriers, over 20-30kgs, depending on your forwarder.

    Also, re the cost of the product, clearance of air freight can seem quite expensive.

    I sent home around 28kg of dresses in a large box (not sure of the exact dimensions.

    Are some airfreight companies cheaper than others?

    Do you know of any good ones?

    Many Thanks

    Sian

    I use Transvalair and have found them to be competitive and very professional. No relationship to them, just a very happy customer!
