How much does airfreight cost?
Airfreight is the fastest method to ship your goods internationally, however, it is considerably more expensive.
Airfreight is charged by volumetric ratio, that is, the calculation regarding the weight AND space your cargo occupies on the aircraft. You can use our Chargeable Weight Calculator for an estimate, however, we recommend you request a quote for an accurate costing as a number of factors can affect airfreight charges – fuel rates, airport fees, customs clearance or any special equipment required to transport your cargo.
Airfreight is the fastest method to ship your goods internationally, however, it can be more expensive. If your cargo is urgent or time-sensitive, we recommend shipping via airfreight. Otherwise, sea freight is more cost-efficient and suitable for larger consignments, heavy bulky items or dangerous goods.
What is the minimum quantity for shipping via air?
There are no minimum cargo requirements however if your shipment is particularly small (less than 100kg) a courier service may be more suitable.
Are there any load restrictions?
Cargo can be shipped in a unit load device (ULD), as a palletised shipment, or as loose cargo when shipping via airfreight. The maximum dimensions for standard palletised airfreight is 2.44m x 3.15m x 1.60m. You can certainly transport longer or wider cargo, but this is subject to airline acceptance and ad hoc pricing would be required.
When the new Sydney Airport open?
Sydney is set to inaugurate its second airport in 2026. Unlike the existing Mascot international airport, the Western Sydney International Airport (Nancy-Bird Walton) will operate 24/7 without curfew restrictions, offering more flexibility and expanding airfreight options to importers and exporters in Sydney.
