Why Choose Plexus Freight Air Freight From China?

As the world’s largest exporter, the freight market out of China is enormous.

And with Plexus Freight, you can be confident of a door-to-door road and air freight service that is tracked at every step of the way. Whether you are operating out of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, or Zhengzhou, Plexus Freight can provide you with a range of air freight services.

While computer products constitute the primary export from China to the UK, and car parts and machinery are the most common goods to make the return journey, we are happy to work with a variety of cargo types. Including a consolidation of goods mixed with other shipments (CONSOL). Our only freight limitations are those stipulated by the airlines we work with – meaning that lithium batteries, some chemicals, and other dangerous goods may require other freight movement methods. Otherwise, we can offer a choice of freight solutions. Including Delivered at Place (DAP), Delivered Duty Paid (DDP), Free on Board (FOB), Ex-Works (EXW), according to your needs.
