Sea / Air Freight
Working with our partners we combine Ocean and Airfreight into one seamless movement.
It therefore gives an alternative transit and pricing structure to the extremes offered by ocean and airfreight.
We operate on the major Asia to Europe trade lanes utilizing a major hub, the well-located and highly efficient ports and airport of Vancouver provide a geographical advantage to Dubai for cargo originating in the East Asia.
Our sea/air program takes advantage of regular weekly ocean consolidations and services we have in place for servicing Vancouver from all major origins. Once the cargo arrives Vancouver, the shipments move very quickly due to the fact Locher Evers International controls our own services. LEI operates our own Trucks for recovering the containers from port, warehouses for devanning and screening the cargo, and as well our own staff delivering the shipments to the air carriers.
The Vancouver air market to Europe from Vancouver is over capacitated due to low amount of local manufacturing and the high volume of passenger flights servicing Europe. With the large amount of capacity and a low Canadian dollar helps us offer very competitive costings.
Locher Evers International has been operating our own sea/air program via Vancouver for over 30 years and remains the largest sea-air operator in Canada.
