That my dear friends is the question.
I'm sure a lot of people on this group have come across this problem and I suppose It would have helped me I had read something like this (and I'm speaking under correction here)
Courier service - Fast and very expensive and limited to +_ 25kg, depending
Freight Air - Slightly cheaper - but takes over from courier 25kg to 1000kg, depending
LCL - Less than Container load - Group Stuffing (beware of other goods)
FCL - Full Container Load - Its all your stuff
FOB - Free OnBoard
EXW - Ex Works
CNF - Cost Insurance and Freight
See attached chart.
Which do you use? If anyone has anything to add to this it would be appreciated
