Why Choose Plexus Freight Air Freight From Japan?

Trade between Japan and the UK seems to be on the up, increasing by 12% between 2021 and 2022. With the UK exporting machinery, boilers, precious stones, and vehicle parts to Japan, and Japan selling optical equipment, metals, mineral fuels, and pharmaceuticals in return, it’s an extremely strong trade route. But there are times when standard sea freight just isn’t fast enough. And that’s where Plexus Freight’s air freight service can provide the answer.

Bookended by door-to-door road transport, Plexus Freight can provide you with a range of air freight solutions between Japan and the UK. Whether you’re seeking a priority service (24 to 72 hours) between Tokyo and Manchester, or a standard service (averaging five to 10 days) between Miyazaki and London (via Heathrow), our experienced team will find you the best times and the best prices for the services you need. Capable of carrying a variety of cargo types, including a consolidation of goods mixed with other shipments (CONSOL), we can offer a choice of freight solutions. These include Delivered at Place (DAP), Delivered Duty Paid (DDP), Free on Board (FOB), and Ex-Works (EXW). Our only limitations are those specified by the airlines we work with. This means that dangerous goods, such as lithium batteries and some chemicals, may require other transportation methods.

At Plexus Freight, we calculate every shipment on an individual basis, based upon weight and destination. Seeking to secure the best possible price for every client. But it’s important to be aware that you may face additional charges linked to your transportation. These can include, but are not limited to, customs brokerage, cargo insurance, documentation fees, airport transfer fees, and warehousing charges. With more than 25 years’ experience working in the freight industry, we understand how complicated international cargo management can be. Especially if you are new to the industry, or don’t have a dedicated freight admin team working on the ground. That’s why we offer a number of additional freight forwarding services for our clients, including customs clearance and other paperwork. Our customer support team is there to help you at every step of the way. Just get in touch to find out more.

Port to port sea freight between Japan and the UK typically takes 40 days, with additional time added on either end for road transport.
