Air Freight Services from China to the UK
Airfreight from China to the UK has become a very competitive and popular service with the fast transit time. For urgent air cargo, M.A. Logistics can offer an express airfreight service at affordable rates. As members of the IATA (International Air Transport Association), M.A. Logistics has direct contracts with all airlines, aircraft carriers and has signed contractual rates across the world, therefore are able to offer competitive rates with an express and reliable air freight service to countries worldwide.
In general, the airline’s transit time from China is no longer than 10 working days. Only 3~5 days in most cases. This is a vast reduction compared to ocean freight. Nowadays, the fast delivery time alone from air freight and aircraft carriers can make a huge impact on a business niche.
If you need to transport your goods in a hurry, air freight is by far the best shipping option for your needs. It is the fastest and most convenient method – an eight-hour flight can take up to eight days at sea, which is unsuitable for time-sensitive goods. At M.A. Logistics, we make the process even simpler, whatever your destination, as we handle all the paperwork and provide insurance for all of our commercial and private clients. All of our prices quoted typically include customs clearance and delivery to your door unless you wish to arrange this yourself of course.
When calculating air freight costs everything is by weight so if you have bulky cargo, convert it down using a volumetric conversion (length x width x height) in order to get the weight that the cargo will be rated against. This is done using a simple formula of length x width x height giving the total cubic measurement and then you divide it down by 0.006.
So, for instance if you had a 20kg package but the size was 60x50x50cm this would equate to 0.15cbm / 0.006 = 25kgs.
M.A. Logistics is now offering cargo insurance for all shipments at very cost-effective prices.

Frequently Asked Questions about Air Freight
At M.A. Logistics we try to make our air freight prices as simple as possible, below is what you will need to get a quote from our customer support experts:
- Weight and Dimensions/Volume of your goods
- Flight terms that your supplier is offering
- The outbound port
- Where the goods are being delivered to
Airfreight cost is calculated by the volume or the weight. It’s normally the volume, which is why we need to know the dimensions of your shipment to get you a competitive price and shipment cost.
There are three factors to consider when choosing the best shipping service and method. First, consider what you are shipping and its dimensions.
For items that are heavier than 200kg or a large volume, Sea shipping is the most cost-effective, allowing you to ship more at a lower rate.
The second consideration is how fast it needs to arrive at the destination and transit times. If time is a factor, air shipping is the way to go. Packages shipped via air usually arrive within 2 to 14 days. On the other hand, packages shipped via Sea shipments take approximately 35 to 70 days to arrive.
The third consideration is determining your shipment budget. If cost is not an issue, air shipping maybe your best option. However, the budget-conscious will find Sea shipments to be more cost-effective.
