When traditional sea freight leaves you wanting quicker transit and air is too costly, Sea-Air is the intersection of on-time and on the money.  

Your e-guide is ready! 

Reduce shipping costs without sacrificing speed. Get all the details you need for building a resilient Sea-Air strategy.  

Chapter 1: The disruption dilemma  

Nobody wants customers to see empty store shelves or out-of-stock items online. But supply chain disruption happens—from airport congestion to capacity shortages to unforeseen challenges a world away.  

Sea-Air combines the best features of both transport modes to mitigate your shipping risks. It’s a nimble alternative that leaves obstacles behind. 

Chapter 2: Clear sailing 

Shipments from ports in Asia typically sail to the hub and are trans-loaded to an aircraft within 48 hours. Our control tower team engineers the precise movement of your cargo to minimize transit times.

Chapter 3: Take to the air

While en route by sea, your shipment is assigned air freight space—a mix of blocked-space agreements and free market capacity.  

Unit Load Devices (ULD) assemble cargo into a single unit, offering ultimate protection and uplift without dwell time. Your shipment gets seamless synchronization between modes, significantly improving performance, speed and reliability.

Chapter 4: A sustainable proposition 

Did you know that a flight emits 44 times (1) more CO2 than a ship carrying the same cargo over the same distance?  

Sea-Air merges both modes to deliver on time with lower emissions than shipping by air alone.
