Air freight to the USA or sea shipping?

If you want to ship your freight to the USA in the quickest possible way, choosing PBS International to get your goods shipped by air would be the most suitable option. Air freight shipping is the fastest way to get your items into the USA. Perfect for large shipments and ideal for those smaller in size, air freight shipping to the USA provides you with an efficient and rapid way to get items into the USA.

With access to all the notable airports such as JFK in New York and Dulles in Washington, we can also fly your items into more minor USA airports too. With items able to reach the USA within 1-5 days when shipped by air it makes sense to utilise the speed of flight if you have a tight deadline to hit for the arrival of your goods. Of course, sometimes freight shipping by sea can be the best option as some items are not suitable for flight, whether that be due to the size of the item or what they are made of. Just book it in advance as sea shipping to the USA can take 40 days or more.
