Air & Ocean service from Europe to Oceania
Do you find the Oceania market difficult to deal with due to the significant time, distance or expensive costs? The air & ocean service of Mainfreight is the solution.
Our combined air & ocean freight service is designed to speed up the transit time between Europe and Oceania without the significant price tag.
European companies dealing with the Oceania market have historically been in a predicament of shipping via sea freight which is very slow or air freight which is faster but significantly more expensive. With this service we have found that product can get to market at half the time of regular sea freight, and sometimes half the cost of air freight.
