Sea transport from Malaysia to Poland 

The most commonly used mode of transport from Malaysia is sea freight, mainly due to its attractive prices and high cargo capacity. We offer the option of shipping full FCL containers of various sizes, such as 20DV, 40 DV, 40 HC, as well as handling smaller LCL general cargo. In addition, there is the option of shipping small consignments, where different cargoes are consolidated with several shippers and shipped in one container.

How long does it take to ship from Malaysia to Poland by sea ? 

Shipping by sea from Malaysia takes between 29 and 59 days depending on the service you opt for.

Air transport from Malaysia to Poland 

Air freight from Malaysia is the fastest option for transporting goods, although it is also the most costly. Delivery time ranges from 2 to 9 days, depending on the transport service chosen. The cost of transport is calculated in kg, the more kg of cargo we ship the lower the price.  

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.
