Brazil is becoming an increasingly promising market with a GDP of US$1.92 trillion (2022). Brazil's economy ma duże znaczenie na rynku łacińskim oraz w skali światowej. Kraj ten jest liderem w wielu dziedzinach, a air transport odgrywa kluczową rolę w imporcie towarów zarówno z Europy jak i innych regionów Ameryki Południowej. Wielkość importu do Brazylii z Unii Europejskiej w w 2022 r wyniósł 44.3 Biliona USD. Największym miastem w Brazylii jest Sao Paulo z liczbą ludności 12.33 mln. 

How long does it take to fly from Poland to Brazil ?

The time it takes to transport airfreight from Poland to Brazil depends mainly on the air service you choose. Air freight from Poland to Brazil takes on average 2 to 7 days. 

Costs and fees associated with air transport/export to Brazil 

The prices for air transport to Brazil are very dependent on the service we choose, the weight of the cargo, the destination and the time we want to send the cargo. For this reason, the current cost of transport should be checked on a regular basis.

Air transport rates are calculated per kilogram of cargo. However, there are occasions when cargo weighs very little and takes up a lot of space by volume. For this reason, airlines have adopted the principle of calculating payable weight and actual weight. If the weight of the cargo on 1 CBM exceeds 167 kg, the actual weight, i.e. how much the cargo actually weighs, is used. However, if, for example, the cargo weighs 100 kg and occupies 1 CBM, the weight will not be calculated from the actual weight, but from the payable weight, i.e. we will pay for 167 kg.  

In air transport, the larger the cargo we send, the better the rates we can count on. The rate per kilo of cargo when shipping 1,000 kg will be much lower than when shipping 100 kg.
