When Should I Select the "Show Both" Button for Freight Method?

Select the "Show Both" button when requesting a quote from Flexport if you are unsure whether you will be shipping your cargo by ocean or air.

Flexport

Use the “Show Both” button if you would like to compare the estimated transit times and costs of shipping your cargo via ocean versus air. Your Flexport team will share quotes for both ocean and air, and you may then choose which shipment you’d like to book.

Note: You will need to select the shipment type (LCL or FCL) for the ocean freight quote.

To learn more about choosing Air, LCL, or FCL, see Should I Ship by Air or LCL? and Should I Ship by LCL or FCL?
