Air Freight from Japan
Air freight from Japan to UK comes into play often when urgent cargo is required. As members of the IATA (International Air Transport Association), Power Forwarding has direct contracts with all airlines and has signed contractual rates, therefore is able to offer competitive rates with a reliable airfreight service worldwide.
In general, the transit time from Japan is no longer than 10 working days. Only 3~5 days in most cases. This is a vast reduction compared to ocean freight. Nowadays, the fast delivery time alone can make a huge impact on a business niche.
Benefits of Using Air Freight
If you need to transport your goods in a hurry, air freight is by far the best shipping option for your needs. It is the fastest and most convenient method – an eight-hour flight can take up to eight days at sea, which is unsuitable for time-sensitive goods. At Power Forwarding, we make the process even simpler as we handle all the paperwork and provide insurance for all of our commercial and private clients.
Calculating Air Freight Costs
When calculating air freight costs everything is by weight so if you have bulky cargo you need to convert it down using a volumetric conversion to get the weight that the cargo will be rated against. This is done using a simple formula of length x width x height giving the total cubic measurement and then you divide it down by 0.006.
So, for instance if you had a 20kg package but the size was 60x50x50cm this would equate to 0.15cbm / 0.006
It’s important to note that the prices quoted typically include customs clearance and delivery to your door unless you wish to arrange this yourself of course.

Frequently Asked Questions about Air Freight
There are three factors to consider when choosing the best shipping method. First, consider what you are
shipping, and its dimensions.
For items that are heavier than 200kg or a large volume, Sea shipping is the most cost-effective, allowing you to ship more at a lower rate.
The second consideration is how fast it needs to arrive to the destination. If time is a factor, air shipping is the way to go. Packages shipped via air usually arrive within 2 to 14 days. On the other hand, packages shipped via Sea shipping take approximately 35 to 70 days to arrive.
The third consideration is determining your shipping budget. If cost is not an issue, air shipping may be your
best option. However, the budget-conscious will find Sea shipping to be more cost effective.
