If you plan to send part of a shipment by air and part of a shipment by ocean, you will need to submit two different quote requests. The air portion and the ocean portion will be treated as two different shipments.

In one quote request, select Ocean Freight for “Freight Method.”

In the second quote request, select Air Freight for “Freight Method.”

Complete both quote requests with the information relevant to each shipment, including cargo ready date, carton count, palletization information, product information, etc.
