Sea-Air - ship then fly

From China to the world, Sea-air service is an alternative to air freight

When sea is too slow and air is too expensive, try a combination of the two.

Sea-Air service is an ideal combination of speed and cost. The long sea voyage from Asia to Europe or America gives you the lowest cost transport - but it doesn't give you speed. So if air freight all the way is out of your budget range, think about our combined service - DSV SEA-AIR.

Not all goods are suitable for shipping in this way, and you'll need to pay attention to the regulations for dangerous goods by both air and sea. And clearly, a whole shipping container can't be loaded onto an aircraft without unloading it and repacking.
