Whilst airfreight is usually considered expensive, it should be noted that on some smaller volumetric consignments it can be more economical than sea and road freight, because of the conversion used by the airlines for charging purposes against those used by the ferry + road operators.
E.g (Air / Road / Sea) Freight, UK handling, UK Customs + UK docs charges to arrival Istanbul, Turkey .
Air-freight conversion 1 Case 25gs (50 x 60 x 55cms) volume= 0.165m/3 divided by 6000 = 28kgs chargeable weight Cost = £95.00
Road-freight conversion 1 Case 25kgs (50 x 60 x 55cms) volume= 0.165m/3 multiplied by 333 = 55kgs chargeable weight Cost = £155.00
Sea-freight conversion (weight or measure = 1m/3 0r 1000kgs) 1 Case 25kgs (50 x 60 x 55 cms) volume= 0.165m/3 (weight/measure) = 1000kgs chargeable weight Cost = £165.00

We are able to offer "use of deferment" for a competitive flat rate on most Vat/Duty values.
We can also offer early evening pick-ups from airlines, transit to local warehousing (bonded-and usual) for larger consignments to avoid high rents chargeable by airlines after 24 hours. This is particularly advantageous when goods arrive on a Friday and can not be delivered until Monday or Tuesday (E.g bank holiday) for whatever reason.
