How will my items get to Jamaica?

Under our service, your goods will be shipped to Jamaica via air freight or sea freight. The volume you are shipping, is a deciding factor when it comes to which option you use.
  • Shipping via air freight: We recommend this option when shipping smaller, personal consignments, which may need to get to their destination quickly. The cost of air freight is calculated by the total weight of your load, therefore, the more your ship via air, the more it will cost you.
  • Shipping via sea freight: We recommend this option when shipping larger consignments, such as whole house moves or vehicles, and other items which you will not need at an urgency. The cost of sea freight is calculated by the container and so can cost you less.
Within these transit options, we offer our customers two container options, exclusive container or shared container.
  • Shared container service: This is best used when shipping a smaller volume of goods which may not take up a full container. Your goods will be shipped in a shared container, alongside another customers goods which are also heading for Jamaica. You will only be required to pay for the space in the container which your goods consume.
  • Exclusive container service: This is best used when shipping larger consignments. Your goods will be sent to Jamaica in their own, individual container and you will be required to pay for the entire space in the container.
