Types of Services:
Freight services are utilised for shipping goods in quantity or items that are large in size. These services are broken down into three categories: air freight, road freight and sea freight.
Slower services like sea freight are not necessarily the cheapest option, likewise air freight isn't always the most expensive.
If you're unsure which service to use, speak to your account manager who will advise you about the most cost-effective delivery solution for your company.
World Options are one of the UK’s major air and road freight forwarders for business. We operate a comprehensive freight service where all goods are handled professionally, securely and on time.
The best way to determine which freight service is required to move your goods and cargo is to speak to your World Options account manager.
From speaking with you and finding out more about your requirements they will be able to ascertain what solution is best. Your account manager will then liaise with the World Options Freight Team on your behalf as they speak to airlines, road networks or sea freight agents.
