- What is Airport to Airport Service?
We offer an Airport to Airport service. That is the cheapest method for you to move your goods back home. It simply means that we will get your goods from Vancouver airport to the closest international airport to your destination.
- *What is volume weight?
The airplanes only have so much space. With the limited payload there has been an understanding between the airlines and their customer where by the airlines can charge a higher price for bulky freight. You simply multiply the LxWxH in cm’s then divide by 6000 and you will have the volume weight in kg. If this weight is greater than the actual weight then that is the weight we base the rate upon.

We accept shipments into the office between the hours of 9:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday. Please call/email to arrange otherwise.
